SOURCE: Combo diesel engine blows blue smoke from only one

Blue smoke means that the cylinder is burning oil with gas/diesel. White smoke means that the engine is cold and excess fuel is being burnt. It means that the cylinder is having worn out rings.They need a change. Also check the engine oil level as well. It may be going low gradually.

Water in the oil


Radiator coolant in the engine oil is normally an indication of a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Running the engine in an overheated condition will cause head gasket failure and often a crack in the cylinder head.

The problem you have is coolant is escaping into the engine's lubrication passages via the failed head gasket or head crack and contaminating the engine oil. If not fixed you will cause further damage to the engine as oil contaminated with radiator coolant cannot adequately lubricate the engine.

Running a leak down test on each cylinder will confirm the leak. In this case you are going to need to have the cylinder head removed and thoroughly checked for cracks and any warpage as well as a new cylinder head gasket fitted. The condition the engine block surface will also need to be checked.

I recently changed the head gasket after overheating. The car is not starting and emitting heavy smoke


How hot did the car get before you had to change the head gasket? If the car had extreme heat then it could have damaged the rings. The rings will collapse and allow oil to squeeze past and burn out of the exhaust causing the smoke. Also since the rings are collapsed the vehicle will have no compression hence the no start. First thing is do a compression check.

Changed my oil today.When I took the cap off to replace the oil,the cap had some white goo on it.What is this?


Could be a leaking cylinder head gasket or a small crack in the cylinder head. Is the head aluminum? Make and mileage of the vehicle will sometime help as some vehicle makes are notorious for head gasket problems. This allows coolant into the oil and causes this goo on the inside of the cap. Have a trustworthy shop check it out to be sure.

Qd32 keeps blowing head gasket in a short distance as put on changed head and checked block but is still doing the same thin


When you do a head job there is a problem with water getting into the head bolts holes in the block. Combined with gunk already in the hole when you insert the head studs and tension down all you are doing is causing a hydraulic in the hole under the stud and the correct pressure to seal the head gasket is not being achieved.. It is a requirement that when doing a head job the stud holes are cleaned out using a thread tap ( to remove rust and carbon build up) and the holes are blown out with compressed air to remove all water-oil and debris.. Most mechanics use a film of oil on the stud threads before installing them-- My preference is "never seize" as it allows the threads to move freely under tension and stops binding of the threads. Tension the head studs in the correct order of rotation to settle the head gasket in place starting at 20 ft/lbs and do each rotation in increased increments of 10 ft/lbs until the correct head tension is reached . Before fitting the head check the protrusion of each cylinder liner above the block to ensure that they are all within tolerance as if one is lower than the rest it will not allow proper seating of the head

Its a 2000 cadillac deville the oil motor goes to the radiator what can I do


Engine oil going to radiator is a cylinder head problem.
Either
1. Cylinder head gasket burnt
2. Cylinder head bolts not tight enough
3. Cylinder head cracked
4 Cylinder head warped.

Remove cyliner head and pressure test it for cracks. If cracked replace unless someone near you can repair effectively. If not then skim and you might as well do a complete cylinder head service ie valves, stem seals etc. Put back head with new gasket and torque correctly and be surprised with the results.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?


The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.
