It does sound like you have a bad head gasket,pull your radiator cap and check for oil and the odor of exhaust or fuel and also check the level,if your pulling coolant into a cylider there is a good chance your pushing exhaust into the water jacket,pull your oil fill cap and look for white/gray frothy oil on the underside of the cap,these are all good indicators of a bad head gasket.

Check the vacuum modulator on the transmission, unplug the vacuum hose and see if there is any transmission fluid leaking from the valve. Check coolant level

88 bronco 2 automatic v6 will sometimes not go in any gear but if I'm lucky it will kick in and go can anyone tell me the problem


the problem was changing that fluid! rarely happen, but it will happen when people change transmission fluid on older car then the car messed up. when you change the fluid you washed all the friction material on the clutch surface by putting in new fluid.

Well, billowing white smoke from the tailpipe is generally antifreeze burning off in the engine, which would indicate either a blown head gasket into a cylinder or a broken fluid passage. In the old days there was a way an automatic transmission could leak trans fluid into the engine and create white smoke too, but that shouldn't apply to your vehicle. Not certain about the noises, but clearly you have some internal damage. You can check the antifreeze level to see if you have lost fluid. You can pull the spark plugs to see if you notice damage to the plugs or deposits on the plugs indicating antifreeze.

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.

White smoke is usually a sign of head gasket problems.Gas smell could be the unburnt fuel from the cylinder head which is the source of the problem.
