Blowing white smoke


If you have overheated your car recently, then you possibly have a blown head gasket. Take off your oil fill cap (with engine off) and inspect to see if there is a milky substance underneath the cap. If so, bad news- head gasket. You can also check the oil dipstick for the same substance to verify bad head gasket, but usually it has to be pretty bad (gasket) or driven for a while before exhibiting any signs. The oil fill cap is a pretty good indicator. With the car cool, you can open the radiator cap and look and smell for anything other than coolant (fuel smell or oil slick). If so, probable head gasket.

I HAVE THIS 2005 CHRYSLER PACIFIC HAD TRANSMISSION FLUSH AFTER DRIVING IT ..IT OVERHEAT NOW WHITE MILKY SUBSTANCE IN COOLANT RESAVOIR WHY ??


You need to check the oil and see if the dipstick shows overfill on oil or if you see the white milky substance on the dipstick you may have a blown intake gasket or head gaskets. I would think it sounds like a blown head gasket. Hope this helps.
If you are adding water to the system you have a problem somewhere you might want to run a compression check on the cylinders to see if you have a intake gasket leak or a head leak. How hot did the car get because you might have cracked a head. If you don't see the water in the oil it may be exhausting out the tail pipe.

Milky oil cap on merc c180 2005


You havw a serious problem with water getting into the oil.
Most likely it is leaking from the head gasket. You mentioned that the head gasket was replaced 6 months ago. Did the cylinder head get re-tighten after several hundred kms. If not this should have been done to avoid this problem.

There is white smoke coming from the exhaust shooting out a watery substance. the white smoke gets worse as i drive it. there is no water in the oil or milky sludge build up and dont need to add water.


This acts and sounds suspiciously like a blown head gasket. You can't fix it if it is. I suggest you check your oil for water (pull the dip stick, is the oil milky white?). Get your car to your mechanic as soon as you reasonably can before you cause much more damage if this is a blown head gasket.

WHITE MILKY SOLUTION IN OIL RESEVOIR


I assume it is in your engine oil, milky oil means moisture in the oil, oil and water make mayonaise, it can get there because an engine is running too cool, like with no thermostat, or broken, stuck open, or lots of short trips where it doen't get warmed up enough to evaporate the condensation that naturally occurs as an engine cools. Or it could be a head gasket, or crack in a casting either block or head, so check the simple things first. If it is overheating and loosing coolant, it points directly to internal engine problems and should be carefully checked before a teardown, as diagnosis is usually niine tenths of the repair. I'm Hoping it's a simple solution for you today!

Lexus ES300 White smoke out the exhaust no milky substance in oil


It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).

2002 lancer started to overheat.


While the car is cold, take off the radiator cap. If you cannot see coolant, fill the radiator with coolant until you can see coolant standing in the radiator. Start the car, and go look at the coolant. Can you see a steady stream of air bubbles in it? If you can, the air is coming into your cooling system (and coolant is exiting) from a leaking head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block. Did you remove the head when you installed your headers? If so, the gasket was probably improperly replaced. Are you getting white smoke from the exhaust? That's an indicator of water in the exhaust.
