Hi

Most unusual for the exhaust manifold to crack, normally any leaks are usually due to faulty manifold gaskets, or the down pipe sealing ring.

I am sure if you lubricate the fixing nuts well, before removal of the manifold, this is what you will find.

Good Luck !

Give me feed back if you like.

A FixYa rating would be Nice...Thanks...John.

Had exhaust manifold replaced since then my 2001 caravan bucks and blows black smoke little to no power


if you replaced the manifold because it was cracked the look for a plugged cat convertor..the cracked manifold was probably letting the exhaust escape..now it builds too much back pressure

Everytime i start my truck a puff of white smoke


Hi Friend:
Check to See if your air-temperature sensor that regulates the amount of vacuum signal that is applied to the servo motor:

The worst Problem is Blown Head Gasket will cause a Loss of Coolant and will cause the White Smoke out of Your Exhaust.

Check your Raditor for signs of Oil in it.

And Double Check your Oil to see if there are Signs of Water In your Oil.

Sounds like you Have a Bad Head Gasket or a Cracked Block That is letting Water to get into your Oil.

It sounds like it Not a Large Area of Head Gasket Failure as of Now.

But it Will Get Worst. Replace your Head Gaskets. And Check your Heads for Warpage and Cracks.

Hi, what does it mean when huge amounts of white smoke comes out of the exhaust? otherwise drives ok? it is a renault megane 1.5 dci 2004. regards catherine


Symptom: White smoke or water vapor from the exhaust. You notice white smoke coming from the exhaust when you start your car. If it is cold out, this may be normal. If the smoke does not disappear after the car is warmed, you have a problem. Possible causes:
  1. Transmission fluid may be entering the intake manifold through vacuum modulator.
    The Fix: Replace vacuum modulator
  2. Cylinder head gasket(s) may be bad.
    The Fix: Replace cylinder head gasket(s).
  3. Cylinder head(s) may be warped or cracked.
    The Fix: Resurface or replace cylinder heads. (Resurfacing is not a DIY job)
  4. The engine block may be cracked.
    The Fix: Replace engine block.

2000 bonn. super charge intake manifold gasket help please


the gasket you had replaced was the lower intake manifold? this gasket can leak coolant and cause white smoke to come from the exhaust. the exhaust is actually single with dual outlet at muffler. when an engine is getting coolant into the cylinder it burns and causes white smoke much like steam. if the engine is running rough and has the check engine light on then it sounds like you have either a leaking intake manifold or problems with the cylinder head or heads. head(s) could have a bad gasket or a crack. only way for sure to tell is too remove manifold or head(s). call the repair shop and demand to have it looked at again. also have another totally separate repair shop inspect it to have a second opinion.
