Get a good quality head gasket. This is too important a part to use a cheap replacement. Torque down the head to specs. Make sure your head bolts are good. Follow the proper torquing procedure and replace the head bolts if needed. Make sure the head is not warped. A warped head might allow water to leak through repeatedly in the same spot if the head is allowing too much of a gap and not sealing with the gasket properly.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

what does the white smoke smell like-does it smell sweet-my bet is anti freeze-its just not run long enough to consume very much-this would mean a leaking head gasket-Denny

I have a 99 Saab 9-5 2.3L turbo. When I shifted it would blow white smoke for a second. Yesterday it started billowing smoke then died. Now it won't start and it turns over very rough. Please help.


Generally white smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine.
Its possible you have blown the head gasket and coolant is leaking into one or more of the cylinders.
You could pull the spark plugs and check for coolant - also run a compression test.

Thick white smoke is most likely Blown head gasket! the seal between the cylinder block and the cylinder head. Coolant in the cylinders.
Does the white smoke have a sweetness to it? That will be the glycol in the antifreeze. Does it run rough? Is there smoke in the radiator, or fluid pushing out of radiator? Open radiator only when COLD engine or slowly with thick gloves and towel over cap. Allow pressure to bleed off before removing cap completely. White foam in or around the oil filler cap.? Cylinder pressure test will reveal where it is. As will a super clean spark plug. Sorry.

04 chevy impala has white smoke coming from the exhaust but no leaking


white smoke is caused by water or coolant entering cylinders, if in over flow it will look like a chocolate milk shake. check on oil dipstick to see if you can see traces of water or anti - freeze in the oil. if you see white smoke coming from tail pipe that smoke means that your car has a leaking cylinder-head gasket or a cracked head gasket. If there is just a leak in the gasket, the problem should be relatively easy and inexpensive to fix, but if the problem is a cracked head gasket, chances are the repair will be a lot more complicated and expensive. If the problem is a leaking head-gasket cylinder you will see white smoke, because the faulty gasket is allowing air and fuel to enter the cooling system. As this mixture burns, white smoke is produced and exits through your tailpipe. If you are familiar with the location of the cylinder head gasket you can check it yourself, otherwise take the car to your mechanic and ask him to check the gasket for damage. may not be but just check it out! if its water or anti-freeze, you will smell a sweet smell coming from tailpipe. good-day ! most of the costs today are labor which is very expensive.

Car started to have white smoke. Crank is turning and cam is turning. No compressor. When turning over no compressor sound at all. Also water was in different locations under hood. I think maybe head...


Well, I think the white smoke if it smells sweet, is antifreeze leaking into a cylinder through a fractured or broken head gasket.

The head being cracked could cause this symptom, but usually it's the head gasket.
If it's leaking at the radiator, or a tube to it, then that could have caused an overheat condition that messed the engine's head gasket up.

Good luck on this repair.

White smoke is comming out of the Exhaust Pipe when i start my 911 Porsche Engine. It stays for abaut 3-4 min. and it is like white Fog


can you smell the smoke,does it smell like anti-freez or oil, if anti-freez there would be steam come out or maybe some water out of the tailpipe,you may have a head gasket problem, or crack somewhere in the head. if the smoke smells like oil ,you may need a valve job.your valve guilds may be let oil seep into the camber when setting.when you start the car up the oil is burnt off.

White smoke and smell of eggs


White smoke in the exhaust, more so on a cold start. That's steam. Water is getting into the combustion chamber. Most likely coolant.
Put your hand in the white smoke to capture the odor. (don't burn yourself)
What does your hand smell like? Coolant (anti-freeze & water) smells sweet.
Likeliest cause = head gasket. Possible = cracked head - depending on how hot it got. Less likely = cracked intake manifold.
Maybe a blown head gasket
