SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls cracked head???

Previous to 2000 Ford had a cylinder head gasket problem with some of the v6 engines failing at two cylinders at opposite corners of engine (don't know what engineyou have) They supposedly corrected that, but I'm not sure how well the correction worked. I doubt if the cylinder head is cracked but if some amount of compression is getting into cooling system it's possible that it may give you strange sensor readings. When testing, it's also possible that some air escaped and returned everything to "normal" ('till it builds up again).
At this point, I would get a second opinion on this. As well as a comprehensive computer scan, have someone do a radiator hydrocarbon test...that will reveal any compression in cooling system from gasket or any other source. (Don't mention that it was checked before, just say what originally happened so objective testing will be done.)

Sounds to me like a leaking heater core, probably just started. Quite an extensive operation to replace. If you happen to be in a cold climate, the windows will undoubtedly fog up. Hope this helps

white smoke sounds like either ingesting transmission fluid through a vacuum ,or a blown head gasket.those cars have coils and yes they go need to do a compression test and see if the head gasket is gone.low compression can also cause a misfire by not burning the fuel properly.

SOURCE: engine shutdown while driving, check engine light

Try turning the advance-trac off. If you have a systems menu (Should be right side of Speedo) you have options for Park assist, bells ,chimes and so on. One selection is the Traction. The traction assist works by throttling down the engine when it detects a difference in rotation from 1 wheel to the next.

You need a scan for the codes but your hunk of metal is not able to go to Autozone or Oreillys until you start it.

You may also want to try to enter the keyless entry code in the door keypad in case the antitheft is upset. Your alarm may block the ignition.

Defeating the traction control and alarm system may get you going.

SOURCE: low oil pressure light comes

Welcome to

First thing to do is check the power to starter with a volt meter.

A. From the battery to starter positive cable check to see if you have continuity.

B. Check the voltage at starter. Red lead of tester to the positive connection and the black lead from meter to a good ground.

Results should be: A. continuity And B. !2 volts

If the results of the above or not what your results are then stop and write to me. If your results are as above continue on to the second test.

Second thing i need you to do is get a Hammer

Now do you know where the starter is ? OK (see diagram)

you will need someone to help you- have this person get in the truck key in ignition -- you go to starter hammer ready holler START ENGINE then tap on the starter with hammer. Will it start?

Now tap the solenoid . It is the little round container on top of starter tap that too. Will it start?

This is an easy way to see if the truck starts if so starter is bad.


Ok We have a service Bulletin on this model for no crank .

White smoke just started coming out the exhaust. It smells like gas, not coolant. What could it be?

Has the vehicle been overheating or losing coolant? The symptoms you describe could point towards head gasket trouble (and other faults). Often, the exhaust fumes from a car with a failing head gasket will smell 'pungent' and 'sharp'.

Check the oil on your dipstick. If there's a greyish/cream sludge - sometimes referred to as 'mayonnaise' - this points towards coolant entering the oil system via a leaking head/head gasket.

Also check your coolant - is there any evidence of engine oil in it? Although the mayonnaise on the dipstick is usually the tell-tale sign of gasket problems.

If you suspect the head/head gasket try a special sealant such as:

I have oil in my coolant resevoir

Hmm try changing the oil, flush and fill the radiator.Then see if the contaminant comes back into the resevoir. If you have a cracked, block/head or a blown head gasket the envoy would have white or blue exhaust coming out and would be overheating since oil retains heat. Some other tell tale signs are little steam will come out of your oil filler when u open it.Your oil looks like chocolate milk instead of regular oil when u check it. Try a compression or a leak-down test to find out if your head gasket is blown. Pull the spark plugs see how they look.

(Contaminated water from rust or mineral? dont use tap water when mixing with the anti freeze)

Hope all this helps you

I have a 2001 Ford windstar, I was told while having my oil changed that there was oil in my coolant, yet when my we removed the coolant from the reservoir and waited for it to separate it never did, which...

In my opinion, if you drained the coolant and there was NO OIL in it or any evidence ( an oily film in the reservoir), you were the poor victim of a dishonest oil change facility.

Just watch your coolant and oil level daily for the next week or so. If any milky residue appears on the inside of the cap where you add oil, or any oil film builds up on the coolant reservoir, then you might have a problem. Most likely a head gasket has failed.

when oil mixes with coolant it sill stay suspended for a long time. Water and oil don't mix but coolant and oil will due to the chemical properties of the coolant and it can take days to seperate.

While out of town, my wife called me to tell me that when she came to a stop at a light, the oil pressure dropped to zero. When I returned home, I checked and found that there was plenty of oil, in fact...

Sounds like you might have a bad oil pressure sending unit, however I previously worked at a chrysler garage, and from 99-01 the jeep 4.0 liter engines were notorious for cracked cylinder heads which allowed the coolant to mix with the engine oil, if your not using any coolant this probably isnt your problem however if you have been adding coolant to you jeep for awhile its bad news because the coolant mixing with your oil has worn out the camshaft bearings causing excessive oil clearances which shows up when your engine is hot and the engine is unable to maintain oil pressure because if the oil clearances being so great.....

99 taurus overheated and wont start i think it lost compression?

You may of blown the head gasket.Check the oil to see if there is any coolant mixed in by draining it and looking for greenish film.You also may be able to see coolant (antifreeze) on the bottom of the oil filler cap before you drain it.If you see it that pretty much means the cylinder head gasket is blown

this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.

Smoke and water from tailpipe

That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel

oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.
