If you are not getting white smoke from the exhaust and the engine oil is not contaminated with coolant and you have good compression on all cylinders. then you can replace the manifold gaskets and stop the loss of coolant without removing cylinder heads

Why my toyota camry smoke at star up


The smoke might be white, blue, or sooty black.

If white, some such vapor is normal on a cold start, but lots and lots indicated a water leak into the inlet manifold or a cylinder, probably a gasket leak. If a head gasket leak, this would cause quick overheating.

If blue,this is oil smoke from worn piston rings or worn valve stem seals. Oil can also get into the inlet manifold via a faulty PCV valve. A compression check will tell you more.

If sooty black, this is over-rich fuel mixture, and may be due to a number of things, such as a faulty temperature sender, a faulty fuel pressure regulator, or a stuck-open injector.

My mazda tribute is overheating alot


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There are few things that can cause the vehicle to heat. Please check the following to resolve the issue:

- A faulty water pump can cause the car to overheat. If the water pump is faulty the coolant will not circulate properly on the engine which can result to overheating. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.

- A worn out or damaged radiator hose. Just a small hole on the hose can cause the vehicle to overheat so have it replaced.

- A weak radiator blower motor. If the blower motor is weak it tends not to cool down the engine so have the blower motor replaced.

These are the few things that can cause the car to overheat so please have the following be checked.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

No leaks,put new water pump on.steam coming out exhaust pipe.no water in oil/


could be a inlet manifold gasket leaking into the inlet side and its burnming water but a head gasket can go without oil in the water or visa versa ,it can even blow between two cylinders and still not loose water just lose power and chuff a bit

2004 vw touareg 2.5 tdi the oil sump was full of water and oil mix,also inlet manifold had oil and water mix.number 5 cylinder had locked up and engine would not turn,so i removed glow plugs and cranked...


Can not be water pump, because that has a vent hole to the outside, and does not at all allow access to crankcase or cylinders. Oil cooler is also unlikely because oil is under more pressure than the water, and it would not get into the cylinder.
Water in the cylinder means up high.
That means head gasket or cracked head.
You can tell with a leak down test.
You borrow the gauge from a place like Autozone, and replace the water reservoir cap with it. Over pump it, about 30 psi. And watch for leaks. If same cylinder keeps filling, then you know where the bad gasket or head crack is. Diesels often crack heads. Not hard to do, but new head is not cheap. Probably $500 for part, $400 labor.

  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then drain cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Detach the heater inlet and throttle body heater hoses from water outlet. If accessible at this time, disconnect the upper radiator hose from the water outlet.
  4. Remove the exhaust manifold. For details, please refer to the procedure located in this section.
  5. Remove the intake (camshaft housing for SOHC) and exhaust (DOHC only) camshaft housings.
  6. Unfasten the oil fill tube bolt/screw then remove the oil fill cap and level indicator assembly. Pull the oil fill tube upward to unseat from block.
  7. Label and disengage the injector harness electrical connector.
  8. Detach the throttle body-to-air intake duct.
  9. Tag and disconnect the power brake vacuum hose from the throttle body.
  10. Remove the throttle cable bracket.
  11. Remove the throttle body from the intake manifold with the electrical harness and throttle cable attached and position the assembly aside.

  16. Unfasten the cylinder head bolts in reverse order of the installation sequence shown in the accompanying figures.
  17. Lift the cylinder head from the engine block. Remove and discard the gasket. Inspect the oil flow check valve for freedom of movement.
  18. Using a suitable solvent, thoroughly clean and dry all bolts, bolt holes and mating surfaces. Inspect the head bolts for any damage and replace, if necessary. If using a scraper to clean the old gasket material from the mating surfaces, use only a plastic or wood one, NOT a metal scraper. Do NOT allow any debris to fall into the engine! To install:
  19. Place a new cylinder head gasket on the cylinder block, then carefully position the cylinder head in place.
  20. Sparingly coat the head bolt threads with clean engine oil, then allow the oil to drain off before installing.
  21. On 1988-89 engines, install and tighten the cylinder head bolts, in sequence, as follows:
    • Step 1 - Tighten all head bolts in sequence to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm)

    • Step 2 - Tighten all head bolts, in sequence, an additional 90°using J 36660 or equivalent
    • Step 3 - In sequence, loosen each bolt one turn, then immediately re-tighten to the specified torque
    • Step 4 - After completing step 3 on all 10 bolts, tighten each bolt, in sequence, an additional 90° Fig. 7: Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence - 1992 2.3L engine 86883123.gif

WATER MIX IN WITH OIL


4.3L engines are notorious for blowing intake manifold gaskets, not head gakets. Usually the rear coolant ports on each head.

92 gmc 350 pickup....rough idle..have replaced MAP sensor, fuel filter,PCV valve, and idle control on throttle body...still having the problem


This could be a couple of things:
  1. Check that you have not got any vacum leaks between inlet manifold and cylinder head.
  2. Check your spark plugs and HT leads are in good condition and not worn, reset gaps. If worn replace them.
Worse scenario is the head gasket make be leaking water into a cylinder. Get a cylinder leakage test done to verify any manifold air leaks or faulty sealing head gaskets.
Good luck, let me know how you get on.

Diagram for intake manifold and fuel lines93 ford probe 4 cylinder


I have a 1994 Ford Probe with a Mazda MX6 2L 4 cyl engine.
When I started the car, lots of white smoke comes out of the exhaust.
Thinking it was an oil problem, I had new valve stem seals installed, plus a new head gasket etc, The 4 cylinders all have excellent equal pressure.
This did not solve the problem, as I now realize that the white smoke is actually water steam, and not oil.
The engine fuel mixture is running too rich, as the plugs are
very black.
Is it possible that the problem could be due to something wrong
with the inlet manifold? Could a broken manifold gasket cause these symptoms.
I do not have a car manual, but someone said that they think there is some sort of water pipe which is connected to the inlet manifold. (Which might account for the steam)
Can anyone please give me some advice on this problem.

This sounds like a blown cylinder had gasket. Although on some engines you will find core plugs below the rocker coverin the head.
