Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
Hello qpsipsi: My name is Roger and i will help. The white smoke indicates coolant in the exhaust system. If you check the radiator it also should be low. If you lost compression in one or two cylinders .you should find them next to each other in the fire line. This would indicate a blown head gasket. If you lost compression in all cylinders. This would indicate a warped head and possibly a bad timing belt. I would remove the head and have it checked by a machine shop. I would also replace the timing belt with a kit as opposed to just the belt. Also replace the water pump. The kit includes new idlers. If the idler or the water pump go bad they will shred the belt and you will bend valves when this happens. Should you need further help lease just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
