You likely have a blown head gasket. Check the plugs to see what cylinder is getting wet and replace the head gasket on that bank. Let me know if you need instructions or have more questions.

My car is needing antifreeze about every two days


Have your Cooling System pressure checked. Also check your oil and anti-freeze. If the oil is milky or the anti-freeze is oily you have a blown head gasket. Watch for white smoke (Steam) coming out of the tail pipe after it is warmed up. If you have white coming out that is coolant, black is fuel and blue is oil. After the pressure test if there are no leaks detected in the hoses then get a compression test to see which cylinder is leaking.

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.

Would a blown head gasket cause oil to come out in weird places in my 1994 eclipse


the only way you can tell you blew a head gasket is if there is white smoke coming out of tail pipe or if there is anti freeze mixed with your motor oil ,check the dip stick if oil is creamy then you have a blown head gasket ,check your valve covers and hoses for leaks

My 2005 Kia overheated. We changed the thermostat


YOU COULD HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET, MOST REPAIR SHOPS CAN DO A BLOCK TEST WHICH WILL TELL YOU IF HEAD GASKET IS BAD, ALSO CHECK TAIL PIPE FOR WHITE COLOR SMOKE.

Car is hard to start, keeps stalling, white smoke coming out of tail pipe


It sounds to me like you have a head gasket leaking. See if you can get a gauge and check each cylinder. Are you using alot of anti freeze?
