Because the overhaul was lousy, you have a leaky head gasket. I hope you have a warantee.

If exhaust white smoke out huge what part is defective in nissan sentra sr e?


if the weather is cold enough it will have white smoke coming out the exhaust it just indicates the moisture that is the by product of combustion and as the engine gets to operating temp it should diminish. if it smells sweet it indicates that the engine is burning coolant.

'98 Nissan Sentra GA13 guzzles too much fuel - supercar-like consumption of 12MPG :-(. Newly overhauled engine - bigger pistons (.1 liter up), new piston rings, head gaskets, timing-chain, everything. Even...


I encountered a very similar problem before. Have your carburetor redone. I also spent a lot trying to fix that kind of issue before with the car I'm using (also with ga13ds). I overhauled the carburetor 2 times using repair kits but there are still the same issues and at one time things became even worse. Bring it to a mechanic who works with nissan (not necessarily in the service center) and/or is specializing in carburetors because there are a lot of things that may go wrong inside a carburetor. I brought mine to an expert in Evangelista Makati, Philippines ( well I guess your from the Philippines because I could not find ga13ds from other countries unless I'm wrong) and it only took about two hours without even buying parts, just some elbow grease, smashing, scratching, and some salvaged parts from other carbs- the whole process cost me Php1,800 plus travel expenses. Also, buy a good air filter and make sure that your air cleaner assembly is working properly, these kind o issues are caused by accumulated dirt in the system and it slowly destroys the carb. After having all the repairs done, invest in one aerosol can of carb cleaner and use it on your carb maybe about once a month (I do it that often) it keeps performance as close to optimum as possible and prolongs the carb so it will take a while before it needs to be overhauled again. The MPG however, may not be the same as before. Since it's an old engine and engines tend to consume more fuel proportional to its age (according to my mech engineering undergrad brother), the MPG may be more by a bit and it is also affected by the engine overhaul, because of a lot machining and making things larger by a bit, the engine will increase cc (I think) by an amount that will also affect your MPG.
There..I hope this helps..Good luck! I love these old carbureted engines, they're so simple to tinker with.
If you're from the Philippines, the man to look for is Mang Vising in Bgy. Bankal, Makati. Just near the INC church there in Evangelsita. Coming from EDSA, turn right just before you reach the INC church and just ask around.
God bless!

NEWLY OVERHAULED NISSAN SENTRA GAS ENGINE GA 13


Check the freeze plugs on the engine block.
These plugs/caps can leak when it is not sit perfectly.
Is the leak from tail pipe or from the engine area?
Start monitor for coolant and oil lose and report to the engine supplier.
Can you have a friend to do a drive along to see where the white smoke is coming from?

DO NOT rule out an incorrectly install head gasket set.
