89 daytona foamy oil... white smoke...???

Hi there, I just purchased a 1989 chrysler daytona. 2.5L non turbo, auto, 115k. Its previous coolant was redish and muddy, did a flush and idles better, but now is puffing more white smoke and appears dripping water. Also the oil seems to be almost foamy... it was also over heating. Thanks for the help!

The information you gave gives the impression that the head gasket has gone bad and the engine needs to be rebuilt. You can just replace the head gasket, but that's just a quick fix for now. The antifreeze mixed with the engine oil is bad, Antifreeze is very corrosive to the main crank shaft bearing and most likely need to be addressed. At this point might as well go through the whole engine since it's apart. Sorry for the bad news friend.

I'm rebuilding my 2.2 liter Daytona engine and had a blown head gasket several years ago. I have taken the camshaft out and found that there is some rust damage on the bearing surfaces from having water mixed in with the oil from the blown head gasket. Water in the oil is never good. The water droplets can get into the bearings and cause rust on the surfaces that should be mirror smooth.

White smoke Audi 2.0 non turbo is this connected to excessive oil consumption is a 60k mile engine A4 reg 2001.


White smoke is usually coolant burning, but you say no loss of coolant, so must be oil burning. PCV is possible fault, especially since you say smoke is intermittent. Part itself should be cheap, less than $20. One your car I believe it is located in a pipe running from intake to valve cover.

My bmw x5 is smoking and loosing power any ideas???


Has the car overheated recently or in the past? If you are seeing white smoke from the exhuast you may have a cracked cylinder head or blown head gasket. If you are seeing white smoke from the exhaust, check the oil for signs of coolant (milky brown oil color or any foamy white on the dipstick) Also check you coolant level to see if it is lower than normal. If the smoke you are seeing is black you should also check you oil level. (could be a burned valve).

1989 Ford Probe Rough Idling...Could it be warned sparked plugs?


Hi Gina.... Rough idle could be a number of things. The easiest and cheapest thing you could do is to replace the fuel filter. Usually they will run just a few bucks at the local auto store. If that doesn't do the trick, try to see if your car is smoking at all and try to determine if it is blue, black, or white smoke. Usually a blue smoke is oil, black is usually fuel richness, and white is coolant. White and blue are the most serious. If you are just burning extra fuel, you might need a tuneup consisting of new sparkplugs, maybe new sparkplug wires, new distributer cap, and distributor rotor. This might be a good time the change the oil and oil filter as well as check the other fluids such as transmission, coolant, and brake. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Smoking white smoke at idal and lots of black at 1500 and above . a little miss at 1500rpms no power lose


Black smoke is a sign of an overly rich fuel/air mixture. White smoke is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most likely you have a blown head gasket. Other symptoms are loss of coolant with no apparent leak, loss of power, miss, oil level overfull, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. Stop driving this truck until you find the problem. Driving it with a blown head gasket will destroy the engine. A compression test will verify this.

89 f250 overheated and stalled 3 times. I replaced thermostat and water pump. Looks like water got in my oil as ists foamy and over filled. Truck will turn over and tries to fire but wont start


Sounds like your head gasket has gone bad. you may have noticed white smoke comeing out of the exhust. do not run this engine without changeing the oil or you will destroy the engine, and if the head gasket is leaking it will dump water or antifreeze into the oil again.you can take a compression check on the engine to tell you what head gasket is bad.

Hi. We are again having problems. The car engine smokes first thing in the morning. It is White smoke and smells like engine oil. It only lasts maybe 10-15 mins then there is no more smoke. It seems to be...


White smoke is usually coolant, oil is usually a blue color, most turbos r cooled by coolant so U may have a coolant leak in the turbo, may B a seal or crack in the turbo. Check your coolant level occasionally to C if it drops.
