Do the block chemical leak test and coolant pressure test to rule out blowning head gasket.
Check all freeze plugs to rule out coolant leak on the hot engine block.
Check for any hose leak.


Start monitor for coolant and oil lose.

SOURCE: possible cracked block or head

Have you checed the thermostat, often when they are locked closed a vehicle will overheat and "regergitate" fluid through the overflow. And just so you know noone can tell by a "carbonation test if you have a problemb. (a carbonation test tells you af a change in ph.) wich is not always the affect or result of a blown head/ head gasket.

My sugestion would be change the thermostat. ($20.00) flush cooling system. (Do it yourself $15.00/ and a hose) Drain water and fill with 50/50 mix of coolant and water.

SOURCE: 2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....

I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.

What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

My Ford Windstorm Has White Smoke Coming Out Of Exhaust,ConstanLy,Thick White smoke


White smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. This can be from condensation in the muffler, but that type of smoke usually dissipates after a minute or two of running. Constant, thick white smoke is usually a sign of water leakage into the combustion chamber(s), either via a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block.

Somehow the coolant is getting into the exhaust system. Either by a blown head gasket, a cracked head or possibly a cracked block. If it's an aluminum head, that's probably it.
