    cooper the car has 120,000 miles on it do you still think it might be a rebuild? I heard that if the main return oil port is covered by the new head gasket it can cause this problem .What is your opinion.
    thanks,d43

The car is not driving, blowing white smoke, and shaking very bad? So what should do


white smoke (alot) usually means water/antifreeze getting into firing chamber- head gasket(most likely) or a cracked head/block (less likely)- check oil dipstick- if oil is "milky" definite leak somewhere

My 1991 honda accord fails to start after I have driven it a short distance and turn it off. I also is blowing white smoke out of the tail pipe


If it is a constant smoke and or alot, your head gasket is blown. stop driving it if you want to save this engine. also engines with really high miles don't like head jobs, remanned heads can blow out the rings on the pistons and that leads to an engine rebuild. If your car has really high miles , you would be better off replacing the engine

I have a 1989 Honda Accord LXI and I just replaced the plug and plug wires its running great but... it produces ALOT of WHITE smoke from the the tailpipe, there is no sign of mixture in the oil or water


it is very possible that you have water leaking from somewhere...it is possibly a leak at the head gasket between the cylinders...do a compression check

Blue smoke is OIL
Black smoke is RICH MIXTURE
White smoke is WATER (head gasket).

I would take it to a garage and get it tuned up, timing, and carb adjustment for mixture. You need an exhaust sniffer to best do that.

If you have far too much fuel in the cylinders, it can seep past the rings under pressure. That much fuel would make it run rough and contaminate the oil.

89 honda accord on and off oil leaks


The bolts that hold on the valve covers may be loose, causing it to leak a little and burning oil. It happened to me once before. I tightened them up and no more problems. It may also possibly be that the valve cover gasket needs replacing

Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec


White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

White smoke out the exhaust


You will need to check head gasket. Please check the oil for coolant (milky deposition or presipitation). Also check if you loosing coolant and if coolant has oil in it.
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
Good Luck
