Question about 1989 Dodge Daytona
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.
