The engine works but the car overheats and smoke comes out. The fans are also not working.


The fans not working is probably why it overheated. If it got too hot, it could have done major damage. Do you see white smoke from your tailpipe?

Smoke coming out the tailpipe 1992 lexus es300 white to grayish in color have no knocks starts on a dime


Do you have to ad coolant very offen? White smoke may be an indication of engine coolant getting into the compression chamber.Sometimes you can remove the oil filler cap and look at the underside of it for a white milky residue
if its there you should have a shop look at it and take a compression test.Hope this helps.

White smoke means water is getting into the engine from teh coolant system. Likely that your engine cylinder head has a crack, or head gasket is bad

What is the diagnosis for white smoke smelling like gas coming out my tailpipe on a 1992 lexus es 300?


With out seeing the car or the smoke, I can guess that you are leaking water into the combustion chamber. Have you noticed any unususal water loss or oil loss? Most likely cause for this is a bad head gasket or intake gasket.

'92 Lexus Es 300 - White smoke from exhaust and smells like gas.


It's the ECU. Very common with the early '90s lexus cars. Everyone will say head gasket, but unless your oil is milky white, it's not coolant leaking into the cylinder.
Buy an ECu on ebay for less than $100, it plugs in under the dash, just like a computer printer. Easy fix.
