White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

Hi i have a 1997 honda acccord lx with a vtec engine i got the check engine light and scanned, recieved dtc code p1259 vtec system failure the symptoms are it driving normal until it reaches 3,500 rpm


If this is a 1997 LX Accord, it did not come with the VTEC, that was only on the EX version in 1997. So someone put an EX VTEC engine in your LX. I've seen this done, and it requires a EX pcm computer. It also needs VTEC wiring to be installed. Check the engine serial # and ID what this engine is from.
If this is actually an EX Accord, then there are more things that can fail than the solenoid. The pressure switch is a common failure.

How do i change a cracked cylinder head in a 1994 honda civic ex coupe 1.6L engine?


Have a compression test done as it may be a head gasket and not cracked. Anyway the cheapest and most reliable procedure here is to have the job done professionally by a shop that specialises in Honda, Get a service exchange head is the answer and you should be back on the road in a day.

1994 Honda Accord LX Sedan just started overheating/losing coolant. The engine also idles terribly rough and has for a while now and will cut off sometimes if the A/C is on. Ignition components have been...


You got it... most likely the head gasket...

Other symptoms:
1. White smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water dripping out of it.
2. With radiator cap OFF and car running, there will be frequent bursts of steam and water (careful! it may be violent).
3. Oil dipstick will have a "milky" goo ... that's water mixed with oil.
4. Overheating can be alleviated in an emergency by running with a "loosened" radiator cap.

Check cylinder compression to confirm that two adjacent cylinders have low, and nearly the same pressure. That confirms blown head gasket.

Hope this helps!

Water in cylinder?


If your going to do the work yourself, its not an expensive fix, little time consuming but it you pay attention to the parts when you take them off its not that bad, all in all, should be able to do it for less than a hundred bucks. Gaskets and fluids are all you need.
