My 1994 chevy camero I fill it with coolent 15 mins of driving it , I open the cap and the coolent is low , and it's not leaking on the ground so I fill it up again and the same thing happins again


You may have a blown head gasket. Pull out the engine oil dipstick and check the color of the oil. If it is black / honey color, that's OK. If your head gasket is blown into the water jacket, there will be oil in the sump, and the oil on your dipstick will be a greyish color.
Another check is to open the radiator cap (the one on the radiator, not the one on the plastic filler bottle) and start the engine. Now look into the open radiator and rev the engine slighly. You might see gas bubbles in the water, indicating a compression leak to the water jacket. Also a smell of burnt gas coming from the radiator indicates the same thing.
Let us know if this helps, so we can check other options.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

1999 gmc youkon missing real bad lots of white smoke smells like straight gas done complete tune up nothing changes help


White smoke would indicate you're burning engine coolant. Black smoke is usually raw unburned fuel, and bluish smoke is oil. Has the engine overheated recently? Is it losing coolant without any external signs of a coolant leak? You may want to do a block check to see if you have a blown head gasket....

ALOT OF SMOKE FROM THE EXHAUST


Blue smoke is oil and means you have internal engine damage.
White smoke with a sweet smell means you have a blown head gasket (check antifreeze, if it's low that is another sign)
White smoke with no real smell is water in the gas tank. Grab some water remover.
Black smoke is a sign your burning to much gas, you need a tune up.

1994 Ford Mustang blowing white smoke that smells like pure gas. Gas running straight through and getting about 5 mile per gallon.


Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

My 1990 jeep cheerokee oil smells like theres gas in it


yes it could be but you should be getting oil in to the chamber also check your tail pipe if you have white smoke coming out that is oil if it is black that is to much fuel if you are getting alot of water then you definetlty have a bad head gasket you will get some water that is condensation built up in side the muffler but that should burn off quick have somebody hit the gas pedal while you watch the tail pipe if it starts blowing water then it is without doubt good luck hope for the best but prepare for the worst let me know if you need more help
