    ok, if it like a sucking sound you may have a vacuum hose that needs replaced as once it is warm it conforms and makes a tight fit. Hope this helps

X-Trail has white smoke blowing out exhaust pipe when I start up


It's normal for cars to do this in cold weather til the engine warms up a bit. If it's not cold you might have a head gasket going bad causing antifreeze to get into the engine.

Sounds like you have water in the oil which means you could have a blown head gasket. Can you tell what got in the oil. Is it antifreeze or gas. If gas you probably have a injector sticking open.

Sounds like you may have a head gasket that has gone bad. with the engine cold remove the radiator cap and start the engine. If there is a constant peculation of small bubble coming out of the radiator and the smell like gas or exhaust you have a bad head gasket.

Loud muffler noise up front of vehical.what is


If the noise sounds like your muffler, but isn't coming from the area of your muffler, then you have an exhaust leak upstream from the muffler.

From the front of your muffler, follow the tubing forward to the catalytic converter, then forward to the engine exhaust manifold.

If you start with the car sitting for a few hours to make sure it's cold, you can use your hand to feel for blowing leaks while the engine is running, but chances are you'll be able to hear it. be careful of the catalytic converter itself, as it heats up fast, so check that first.

Once you've found the leak, the fix depends on the emissions laws in your state. If you have none, and the leak is in the middle of the pipe, you can buy pipe patchers (metal preferred) through auto parts stores or catalogs/websites. If you have strict emissions laws, or the leak is at the junction of the catalytic converter and pipe, you'll need to replace the failing part.

"Check engine" light stays on.


How many miles? One thing is with diesel engines the glow plugs do come back on till engine hits a low warm temp when it's cold out. You may see the light come one once or twice after it's first started.

Car overheating


Your message is listed along with 2000 DeVilles - not gonna get much feedback that way -
Even though you don't have visible water coming from the exhaust, the combination of overheating and coolant loss still sounds like a blown headgasket.
When the engine is running, you are pushing exhaust gases into the cooling system and producing heating of the coolant the radiator can't handle. When the engine cools down, you are probably sucking a little coolant into one or more cylinders.
Tie an old towel over the tailpipe before starting the cold engine to see if the exhaust gases are as dry as you think.
Depending on how bad or where the head gasket is failing, watch for any oily signs in your coolant, any signs of engine oil turning into hand creme and with a cold engine, take the coolant fill cap off, then start the engine allowing it to warm some and watch your coolant overflow bottle for bubbles. If you find any of those signs and are still not convinced, pull each plug and look for signs of rust on the plugs. If you find it, well . . . Any or all of the symptoms above say 'blown headgasket.'
