  • ihcentrum May 24, 2009

    I am sorry but i have no idea how else to describe, actually the puffing noise what i can say about it,because it's not knocking,as it comes side of the engine where is the airfilter situated,otherwise is a very loud puffing noise,Like a two cylinder tractor.It still like a exhaust gaskets?Does it damage the engine if i drive couple of miles?

  • ihcentrum May 24, 2009

    As i mentioned earlier have no smoke,no warning lights,and even 5 month standing on the yard still starts on the first attempt.

    I just want to be sure not to kill the engine.

Puffing noise is a vauge description but considering that you have just repalced the head gasket and have no other issues, I would have the exhaust mainfold checked for cracks and gasket leaks. If manifold was warped a bit it can leak even with a gasket having being replaced.

HI, i recommend changing the donut gasket. this is the most overlooked gasket when changing the exhaust manifold gaskets. its the round gasket that is between the upper exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold.

Inspect the muffler for leaks and breaches as well.

    The donut gasket is concerning the puffing noise but, the misfiring may be an issue concerning the intake manifold gasket. i would inspect this gasket as well for damage or leaks. this will cause misfiring.

    In some causes, a leaking or worn donut gasket will cuase misfiring and eveb upper exuasht back firein a swell.

Smoke coming out of engine


White smoke? Coolant is getting in the cylinder and the white smoke is really steam. Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Bad news is that it needs to be replaced...good news is that the inline 6 cylinder engine is one of the easier head gaskets to replace. I've never replaced a head gasket but did it on my Cherokee just three months ago. If you tag your parts and pay attention how they are taken off you can do it. The other option is to replace the engine as they are pretty cheap to get. Good luck.

Excessive white smoke coming from exaust,and what sounds like a stuck lifter


White smoke usually is from a failed head gasket. The lifter noise bothers me though usually meaning that you have water in the oil, and may have done internal damage to either lifters, cam or engine bearings. Do not drive it and have it checked out immediately. Needing head gaskets is an expensive job but engine bearings etc generally means replacing the engine.

89 daytona foamy oil... white smoke...???


The information you gave gives the impression that the head gasket has gone bad and the engine needs to be rebuilt. You can just replace the head gasket, but that's just a quick fix for now. The antifreeze mixed with the engine oil is bad, Antifreeze is very corrosive to the main crank shaft bearing and most likely need to be addressed. At this point might as well go through the whole engine since it's apart. Sorry for the bad news friend.
