Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
Took to the local dealer they said it needed a timing chain put one on that didn't work change the module,spark plugs, wires, coils that didn't work also put new headgasket still had the same problem. Check brain box its ok, check for spark and all the plugs are getting fire but the spark seem to be weak at the #2 plug the gas don't burn, gas is dumping into that cyl. white smoke blowing out the tail pipe (gas fumes). Please help
Black smoke is usually fuel...white is usually coolant...you may have a warped cylinder head or some other mechanical problem. do a compression test. If you disable the #2 injector does smoke continue? if it does, it's not fuel. When you remove #2 spark plug, is it wet? if so what's on it?
