2006 dodge ram 1500 4.7 blows white smoke when you put the radiator cap on but does not run hot and my timimg is off


Well, white smoke is water and depends where you live and what the temperatures are and how far that you drive it. Typically if it's white if you pull the radiator cap off and look at the coolant flow, if it's a head gasket going bad then the fluid will be bubbling from the intake or exhaust gases blowing back through the radiator. A useful tool also, I believe autozone loans a radiator pressure tester which you pump air into the system, cold of course and see if the needle goes down. If it does, you have a leak, good luck.

Oil in the radiator overflow reservoir


If it is engine oil, you could have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket. If its trans fluid, you could have a leak inside the radiator.

Oil in radiator , but there is no oil and water mixing in sump


I am assuming its motor oil and not transmission fluid, right ?
You can have a leaking intake gasket or head gasket and get oil in the coolant without getting coolant in the crankcase.
Same thing opposite. The bigger the leak, the better the chance of getting both at the same time.

What is a intake manifold gasket


Lets review what you said - - you were probably adding coolant since freon goes into the air cond unit.
If there is oil in the coolant tank, something is leaking to allow engine oil into the cooling system such as the intake or head gasket. If it is trans fluid it could be the trans cooler inside the radiator.

Leaking fluid from over flow hose


Could be a bad head gasket or intake manifold gasket, clogged radiator, or air trapped in the system.

Ok. guys. i am losing coolant. it is not showing up in the oil and i have no external leaks. i did replace the head gasket and all associated gaskets about two months ago. also have changed the upper and...


If the coolant is leaking at the head gasket or the intake manifold gasket slowly, then new gaskets will have to be installed. The bubbles coming up is a bad sign that the seal of the coolant system is bad or it's overheating the coolant to the point that it boils over.

The overheating may be due to air or vapor in the cooling system not allowing fluid to flow freely.

Did you put a 50/50 concentration of coolant to water into the cooling system?

Also, check the fan to see if it is turning on when the car is at operating temperature at idle.

May need to be flushed out and new coolant installed to increase cooling efficiency.

Good luck on this repair.
