If there is white smoke (coolant) coming from the exhaust then the head gasket has blown out, the reason the car doesn't show over heating is because there is no coolant going over the sensor and not enoughto circulate thru the heater core.

What to do when 2006 Chrysler Pacifica engine temp warning light comes on?


Do not continue to operate. Operating an overheated engine will cause the engine to fail.

After the engine has cooled,
Confirm that the engine has coolant.
Confirm that the reservoir is full to the mark
Start engine and confirm as engine gets warm cooling fan at radiator turns on

Confirm that the rubber engine belt is working
Put in car heater to full hot and blower on.
Confirm heat is hot from car heater.
If heater is not hot possible water pump failure or air in coolant system keeping the coolant from circulating.
Allow to cool completely.
Remove cap start engine and observe coolant flowing at or near cap. Observe bubbling or exhaust gases coming from radiator

Check for water in oil by pulling dip stick
  • White smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Overheating engine
  • Bubbles in the radiator or coolant overflow tank
  • White milky oil
  • Significant loss of coolant with no visible leaks
If milky likely a blown head gasket

Hope this helps?

Why doesnt my heater/ac work


Is it smoke or steam? Many times it is a bad heater core, hose or other issue. If you find the coolant level in the radiator is disapering then this shows to check what I mention above. If smoke then you have to check the wires for signs of burnt and melting insulation.
It is probably a heater core or hose though. A tip... He over use tap water in your cooling system. Only use distilled water or heater cores, radiators and worse problems may occur.

I have a 98 Kia Sephia. When I turned on the heater it blows cold air and smoke came from underneath the hood while the heater was on. Turned the heater off and car. After a while off it stopped smoking....


Check to see if you have lost antifreeze. If the coolant reservoir tank is low or empty, check the radiator, but wait till the car has cooled down before opening the radiator cap. Low coolant level is sometimes the cause of poor heater performance, but your car may have a leaking heater core or hose. Feel the hoses for any wetness-they are behind the engine and enter the firewall behind the engine. The coolant may have got on the hot exhaust pipes and caused the smoke. But you will have to check for that or for what caused the smoking, when the heater was turned on. First check the coolant level and add a pre-mixed 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water if needed.

Heater stop working


Check you other question. I just posted this.

Make sure the coolant level is full in the reservoir.

If the coolant level is good feel the hoses that go to the heater core back by the firewall. If one is cold and one is hot that the heater core is plugged. I have had fairly good success back flushing the heater cores and getting them to work. If back flushing does not work than the heater core will need to be replaced. The entire dash will need to be removed to do this.

If both the hoses are hot than it may be the blend door actuator. You should hear a distinct difference in the air flow from the vents by moving the heat control from full hot to full cold.

The last thing is the t-stat could be stuck open. If this where the case than the temp gauge will also be reading low.

Check those out and let me know what you find.

The coolant light flashes on but the temp gauge does'nt go past the middle when the car is running


YOUR TEMP GAGE WILL NOT REGISTER CORRECTLY WHEN THE COOLANT FALLS BELOW A CERTAIN LEVEL. WHEN IT IS SMOKING IT IS EXTREMELY HOT. IF YOU HAVE A COOLANT LEAK THAT BAD IT SHOULD BE NOTICEABLE EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT HOT. YOU NEED TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE COOLANT LEAK. WATER PUMP, COOLANT HOSE, FREEZE PLUG, HEAD GASKET, RADIATOR CAP LEAK, OR RADIATOR, OR HEATER CORE. CHECK THE ABOVE AND YOU WILL FIND THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK.

I have a dodge 97 dakota, my heater doesnt blow out heat after warming up and being driven, and sometimes i kind of smell antifreeze, when i use the defroster


it sounds as if you have two problems,one the heater core is plugged and two you have a heater core that is leaking.the leak is shown when you use the defroster by the smell and chances are there is a light film of antifreeze on the windsheild.and the plugged heater core is shown by no heat.check the radiator to make sure the coolant level is full and the overflow bottle is at the full level. as a low coolant level in the radiator will cause no heat.with the car warmed up(radiator coolant hot), check the heater hoses at the firewall were they enter the heater core they should be the same temperature from one hose to the other.if the coolant level is up and the hoses are the same temperature then the heater core is plugged.if the coolant temperature is the same from hose to hose but not hot to the touch the thermostat may be weak and needs replacing.either way the heater core will need to be replaced as it is leaking into the heater box assembly

My car turns the light low coolant and when i turn it on it comes like smoke. i put antifreese again. but it keeps showing the ligth low coolant


I dont remember the lumina having a low coolant light.

It does have a low washer fluid light though.

You can see if you coolant overflow bottle is full. If it isnt, fill it to the hot or cold mark on the side.

Fill your windshield fluid too and see if the light goes out.

Good luck and be safe!

White smoke


The smoke must come from a coolant leak close to the radiator, or a fin crack in the radiator itself. Check all hoses and clamps, idle hot and look for smoke. You may have a heater core corrosion issue, watch close for coolant leaks on the floor mats inside, all of this may be connected and look for leaks where you park. Just a small amount can produce smoke, open the hood when it smokes and look.
