Question about 1995 Honda Civic
I red lined my car, missed second then noticed smoke coming out the hood. It didnt help that i had stop leak in my radiator, and i drove the car home running on water instead of anti-freeze. Now when i start my car it idles loud untill i reaches the right tempreture then it starts revving up and down, it dosen't blow white smoke from the exhaust. Can someone help?
Sounds like you might of blown a head or intake manifold gasket or cracked head. If it sounds like a rollercoaster going up the tracks or tractor sound. it's that. It's expensive repair. My advice if you dont know anyone cheap get another used car until you fix it or whatever your situation is. Also, it idles up and down because of the air escaping from the crack. If engine doesnt hold constant pressurethats whate happens. everything is to the T when working with vehicles. Plus redline dont matter, theres a cut off point, however because of the high rev you could of caused the over rev and blew a gasket or cracked the heads. Especially if you didnt have the proper fluids to keep the temperature down. Good Luck. Been there.
