I had my intake manifold gasket change along with the valve cover gasket. White smoke is still coming out of tailpipe?


White smoke may indicate an internal coolant leak or low coolant reservoir levels. Coolant leaks can also leak into the oil of your car causing it to be frothy or milky looking smoke. You might have a cracked head gasket, engine block, or cylinder head which are all caused by overheating.

Smoking on acceleration after overrun


Maybe a leak-down test on number 4 could find it. Cylinder wall wear, maybe?
At least you got a good head if you have to rebuild the engine, that is, if worse comes to worse.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville. I just had the radiator and the water pump replaced. Afterward my service engine light comes on and blinks occasionally during the first minute of cold startup. This...


Sounds like a head gasket leak. I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo with the Northstar 4.6L engine. I had a misfire on cylinder 1 that seemed to go away after I added Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair for about $30 at Advance Auto and the leak went away. Be sure to get the Head Gasket repair that can be added to regular antifreeze without draining it out and having to add to pure water.

Also, check the code for the associated problem If there is a particular cylinder missing, it might be being caused by the antifreeze leaking into the cylinder on that cylinder that is missing.

Good luck on this Northstar Engine Repair.

Fuel smell rough run when started


That condition is a fire hazard condition, I recommend towing to a good mechanic, as any errors increase fire hazard.

What needs to happen is to locate EXACTLY where the fuel is coming from, then why. Sometimes seals, sometimes stuck injector, sometimes computer invoking based on something.

I would expect that you have a check engine light on, if you do not, that may point you to external leaks only, and not leaking injectors, but check everywhere to that point. Fuel leaves stains, so it should be easy to find. No smoking, and use LED lights and lower explosion and/or fire possibility.

If you do have check engine light, pull the codes and follow from there, but remember, a leaking injector may manifest as oxygen sensor issue, when raw fuel on it is the issue, sensor a victum. the codes are a clue, not the answer.

Smoke is coming out of the car but its not overheating so what's the problem?


what does this smoke smell like? oil? coolant?, if it smells like coolant then u have a leaking head gasket, not all head gasket leaks cause overheating, so the fact the engine is not overheating doesn't mean you don't have a head gasket leak.

White smoke coming from my 95 Geo tracker, Standard shift, only on start up any ideas. Just had a tune up, new clutch, and cable.


most deffinately an internal issue. 2 possible problems oil seeping through valves when engine not running. sitting in combustion chamber and burns off during start up. 2 piston rings in one or more cylinders bad and letting oil blow by and start up is only time it is really noticeable.

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm


Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.

Audi engine oil leak?


Sounds like a leaking valve cover gasket. The parts are around $50 to do both cylinder heads from www.ecstuning.com. It's not a major issue, but it may be a sore point to a potential buyer.
