Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2000 chevy z71 4x4 1500 pickup


White Smoke is coolant being burnt,usually from
a failed head gasket

The motor overheated & pushed out the freeze plugs

They told you different things for several reasons

They don't have your commitment to leave it & part with your money
They have little experience themselves
They or the shop does not want the job (my guess)
They can not make money on a job that will last a week or more
They won't tell you that you have a job coming costing you $3,000

The motor may have to come out for the freeze plug issue
The head gaskets may have to be done

That is all the guessing from here,sorry

No power when I step on the gas and is smoking bad


Smoke from tail pipe or smoke from under hood?
A general rule of thumb if it is coming from tail pipe the color of smoke will tell you a lot.

White and thick means head gasket failure, Blue means oil is being burned.

I would recommend you check the seal of everything and make sure it is cleaned that had to do with vacuum or fuel distribution. EGR valve (gasket fails sometimes) IAC valve, MAP and MAF sensors, Fuel injectors, FPR (this will need replaced if leaking),

Also check you coolant and oil look for signs of either one mixing with one another, smell you coolant and make sure it don't smell like gas either, look around where the head meets the block and make sure you don't have any coolant leaking there. The smoke if from the tail pipe makes me think head gasket and these are simple checks. They are not 100% diagnosis but can lead you to the problem.

Also one obvious thing would be make sure no one put anything in your gas tank.

I would most likely look at the injectors first then the head gasket next.

Hello Danny Nichola,

I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND shooting out ALL the EXISTING TROUBLES ... before taking engineered circuits
into complex new situations... never considered during
initial design.

My BEST ADVICE: Put all the lights BACK
as originally DESIGNED/SPECIFIED.

Compounding EXISTING troubles... with
undefined circumstances ... can only make ultimate trouble resolution more complex and problematic.

FREE circuit drawings are at BBB Industries website
(registration required... these are real GM documents)...

Look over the schematics... fix all you troubles with
real lamps (per original design SPECIFICATIONS...

MAKE SURE EVERYTHING is working perfectly..

Then & only then
re-design the CIRCIUTS with "modern" lights
(once you have your own engineering degree)...

I have a 1997 bmw 528i and its constantly overheating also theres a lot of thick white smoke that coming from the tail pipe. What could the problem be?


Unfortunately, you are experiencing two of the classic signs of a bad head gasket. Have the coolant checked with a test kit from your favorite auto parts store to verify this. I would check the radiator coolant regularly to verify coolant loss. Sometimes engine cooling system designs can allow for a bad hose to come in contact with the exhaust and make smoke out of the tail pipe so have all of the hoses checked too.
Hope this helps.

Heater not working


If you have a very clean tail pipe the water is going through the engine. This happens when the head gasket starts leaking from the water jacket into the cylinder and then is pushed out thru the tail pipe via the exhaust of the engine cylinder.

Here is a quick way to check for a blown / leaking head gasket. First start of the day remove the radiator cap and fill the radiator all the way to the ring area. Leave the cap off and start the vehicle. If it pushes lots of water out of the cap hole as you accelerate the engine then the head gasket is leaking into the water jacket of the engine.

You can possibly locate the cylinder that is causing the problem by removing the spark plugs one at a time. When you come across the very clean spark plug in comparison to all of the rest that is the cylinder that is leaking.

The only real fix for this is removal and replacement of the head gasket.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Are you loosing Coolant? That and if there is a chocolate color in the oil are your best indication of a blown head gasket. Usually it will force coolant from the overflow tank under acceleration if the head gasket is going bad. There are a few different things that can make it surge, Fuel delivery, timing, vacuum leak. Takes more looking to find real reason for problem. Good luck and have a good day.

White smoke from tail pipe, Changed rings and head gasket still there.


White smoke or steam? If it's smoke, I bet you have an automatic transmission, trans fluid makes white smoke. There is a vacuum line from the trans to engine somewhere, there is probably a diaphragm that's broken. call your local trans shop it shouldn't be a huge expense to fix.
please leave a fixya rating if I'm correct

My truck blows white smoke


Hello!
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).
Good Luck

No tail, running lights.


The socket for the headlite switch is bad or burned or deterioted due to heat. What happens that there is no good contact. You will have to replace the socket. The socket may not be available from the dealer. What you can do, just like what I did, check your socket design, go to a ford dealer and they have a book with all socket designs and identify the one you have. Get the manufacturer name and part number. With this information, go to Kragen and they will be able to order the socket for you. You will then have to cut the wires and attach the new socket.
