    Hi Linda Tyler, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? What color is the smoke and where is it coming from, under the hood or out the tailpipe?

On this long run, pay attention to heat guage and possible coolant loss. Cracked engine block could be the problem which head work would not fix.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda CRV stalls once it warms up then after

Also try the crv recall replacing the ignition mechanism where you insert the key. I have the same problem and was solved after reading about it in one blog.. it is free. It appears that it got shorted and will automatically kill the engine. after a while it will be cold again and you will be able to start the engine..

SOURCE: Hyundai Accent 1.5 Diesel. Intermittent problem

it sounds like a glow plug issue. perhaps a bad glow plug relay. I would think its the relay if the problem comes and goes. If it were a bad glow plug the problem would be constant. check for volts at the glow plugs next time the car acts up. If you find no volts, tap on the glow plug relay next time you turn the key on. This may cause it to activate. if so then replace relay

SOURCE: 1987 toyota pickup with 22r keeps blowing head gasket

Your head bolts are stretched, when it got hot it weakened the metal in the bolts which means that the bolts cannot hold the needed tension on the head. Replace the bolts and you will stop blowing head gaskets. Also use Genuine Toyota head gasket, It will be a bit dearer but they are much better than aftermarket options.

SOURCE: White smoke came from the exhaust pipe and the car killed in motion. I check all fluid levels were fine, once i started the care again and proceeded the accleration was a bit rough. After a few minute

white smoke mostly is caused by over fueling so what i suggest you do is first of all check if there is no leak on the injectors and if there is none which means your valve sterm seals are damaged.When the head gasket is blown out you may have problems like :-loosing power when driving,over heating,idling problems and oil mixing with water, its not your head gasket.

Why? You need a repair manual. Try filepeep.com if they have it, or manualslib.com or your Auto parts store, or library.
If you DIY you will need to remove the head. Then may need a hydraulic press at machine shop to press out the old and install a new.

check the coolant level. check thermostat for correct operation. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks . All indications are that the motor is overheating badly.

Engine starts and runs fine for five minutes or less then starts smoking and runs rough.


black smoke - oil in the cylinders

White smoke - water in the wrong area - probably a head gasket.

The head gasket is what I am hoping for because it is cheaper to do. And most instructions manuals from an autoparts store has step by step instructions.

If it is oil then you are looking at rebuilding or replacing your engine.

Take a look at both the oil and antifreeze to check for cross contamination which would verify the blown head gasket.

Where is the valve gasket located on a 1996 Saturn CR


Around the edge of the value cover. The value cover bolts to the engine head (top) and the gasket fastens between the cover and the heads, All the cover and gasket do is direct the oil on top the engine values to flow back down into the engine block after this been pumped on top of the value stems. Gasket breaks and you have oil around the engine an on the ground. Also smoke when your driving around.

My 91 honda civic has alot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust, and have oil on the spark plug in the #3 cylinder not sure what the problem is (bad vaulve/seal)??? one month prior to problem blew...


I'll tell you what few might be problems
Oil on spark plug could be:

1. bad cylinder rings 2. value seals
For Value Seals you will take off head again and then take off value over. Take all (Lifters or Cam) and springs off and you will see seal rings in each of values.
For cylinder rings, you will maybe need to take motor out and take head off, oil pan and rod bearing unbolts to get cylinder out to replace new rings. Or you can try do that without motor out. just take oil pan off under the car.
Try change oil with 1 qt of Lucas Oil and 4 or 5 normal oil. Best oil is Castol High Mileage
Lucas Oil should help stop leaking oil inside the cylinder. Or another kind bottle called (Stop Smoke) at auto store.

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.

Cold cranking amps - 05 Ford Five Hundred


You can buy a battery with as many cca as you like as long as the battery fits your battery box. The cca is how long you can crank motor befor you run out of power If you can get a 700-750 cca battery you will be fine. But you could do with a 450-500cca battery if you want. But I wouldn't go less than that especially if your running the v8
