Yes, I have had the same experience.
That product is made for various different applications ( different problems.)
If you used it for a blown head gasket, which is the most common usage, and it is smoking white smoke or steam,likely it did not fix the head gasket.
That was my experience on two cars.
You have not mentioned if you put it in for a blown head gasket, or a cracked block .
In any regards, another motor from a salvage yard might be the cheapest fix, if you can get one that has a 90 day guarantee.
God bless your efforts.

FC P1529 means "Check TCM"

  • the vehicle is stuck in 3rd gear failsafe, this is what happens when there is a trans fault, but you made a big mistake.
  • you replaced the wrong sensor you put in a vehicle speed sensor wich calculates the rpm and speed of vehicle,,
  • your problem is an input and out put speed sensor wich is also located on top of the trans these sensors measure the speed of the input and out put shafts inside of the trans mission,,
  • you probably will not be able to get these sensors aftermarket, dealer item only i think

I think I'd have to gamble on a new relay, and clean up contacts in those sockets with electrical cleaner, then add dielectric grease before plugging in new one. Do the pump first obviously.

SOURCE: Car died rotton egg smell

Not sure if engine coolant smells like rotten egs when it burns inside the cylinders , but it sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. Coolant and/or oil could be getting inside combustion chamber. Another possibility is that the catyletic converter might have broken up and colapsed onto the screen where it goes into the exhaust. Might give the rotten egg smell and block the exhaust enough to cause backpressure sufficient to cause the engine to run poorly too.
Try putting your palm over the exhaust pipe , if the exhaust is coming out in pulses (pop ,pop,pop) thats normal , if it is just slowly flowing out with no noticable pulses , I would check into the cat converter problem.

Smoke coming out of engine


White smoke? Coolant is getting in the cylinder and the white smoke is really steam. Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Bad news is that it needs to be replaced...good news is that the inline 6 cylinder engine is one of the easier head gaskets to replace. I've never replaced a head gasket but did it on my Cherokee just three months ago. If you tag your parts and pay attention how they are taken off you can do it. The other option is to replace the engine as they are pretty cheap to get. Good luck.

Hello
You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

This is a good indication of a bad ignition control module. The module is located under the coil pack (where all of your spark plug wires come from) and may be testable. Auto Zone says they can't accurately test this part but it is $100 to replace it.
