Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
Changed 94 3.1 motor with 96 3.1 motor that had been setting for a while (not sure how long,intake gasket was said to be only problem)got everything together, motor started right up, had high idle. neighbor hooked up to computer to check specs. temp showing 230- 256, fan would kick on and drop it 30+ degree. changed air flow sensor on throttle body,idle went to normal, white smoke started coming out exhaust, oil level is increasing. intake or head gasket the culprit? if intake blows, water will get into piston? know intake usually blows before head. engine runs smooth just smokes bad. checked plugs, no discolor. #2 slightly damp
Smell like rubber or trans fluid or something coming out of intake behind engine. ok i will try check but outside rain icy water right now

If your intake gaskets are leaking, when you dump soapy water on the gasket, it should bubble like crazy ( when it's running). If you can, run it with the rad cap off and watch for bubbles. If it keeps bubbling, you probably have a head gasket problem.
