Bad rings or blown head gasket. You'll have to replace both to replace the rings so I would go ahead and replace the rings and Head gasket and have the valves checked while you have the head off. Paying a little more now is well worth it trust me.

White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.


White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

I CHANGED THE THEMOSTAT..... CAR IS STILL OVERHEATING....WHAT DO I CHECK NEXT


First, do you have enough collant? underneith the water pump there is a weep hole, feel to see if there is and anti-freeze dripping from this, if so the water pump is failing. Are you getting any heat? the heater core or the bypass valve could be no good. Also check the oil, look to see if it looks kinda like chocolate milk if it is , the anti-freeze is mixing with the oil and the headgasket is no good

Upon starting the 1995 Camry the engine dies. There is also grey smoke coming from the tail pipe. Checked the oil and there is no water in it.


Is it gray, bluish gray, or white? White smoke, during warm weather, indicates that you have a head gasket out and it's vaporizing water, it will look much like it does when you first start it on a cold day. Bluish gray indicates burning oil, which could be bad valve seating, severe engine wear on your piston rings and oil is blowing past them into the combustion chamber. Grey smoke is probably water as well, though it could be contaminated with oil, or the vehicle could be running too rich, getting too much gasoline. But typically this is more of a black smoke than gray.

Camry 3 litre v6 engine: Coolant in radiator bubbling profusely.


If there is no white smoke billowing out of the tailpipe, I would not remove the heads. If you had bad heads or head gaskets, there would be a whole lot of white smoke pouring out of the tailpipe. Coolant bubbling into the overflow indicates poor coolant circulation...You may just have a seized thermostat, partially clogged radiator or malfunction cooling fans. Try removing the thermostat and running it. If the bubbling stops, you do not have a cylinder head issue.
