Head gaskets are quite common to fail on Auroras. If it leaks internally, coolant burns and causes a smell to exit through the exhaust.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee 5.9 v8. i am finding myself getting antifreeze probably every two weeks to three weeks, but i can smell it in my exhaust. also it almost has a burning rubber smell to it...


Your head gasket is bad,thus the smell of antifreeze in exhaust,,,,,,,check your oil,,you might have what looks like milky color mixed with oil,,,,that would be water there too.

White Vapor from exhaust and I think the water vapor contains antifreeze in exhaust pipes?


If you "smell" the exhaust it will smell sweet if it has antifreeze in it. If that's the case then you might have bad head gasket(s) or cracked head(s) or block. If in fact it is antifreeze in the exhaust, a "leak down" test will help diagnose this. I would take it to a shop that you trust for further testing.

Grey smoke coming from exhaust and oil in the exhaust pipe


Grey or blueish smoke indicates that you are burning oil, usually a sign of worn piston rings.

Keep an eye on the oil level in the vehicle

When i run my 1996 dodge ram 1500 it smells like antifreeze. i had the head changed but it smells like antifreeze. what could be the problem?


check the coolant level to see if it has dropped.Then look under the engine,for any leaks.Look for pools of coolant on top of the engine,or run down on the sides of the engine.Then look for radiator hoses,ans heater hoses that are leaking.If you are loosing antifreeze ,and you are sure the coolant is going somewhere,you may sill have a head,or head gasket,that are bad.If it has not been long before the head change,then the antifreeze may be still present in the exhaust,or on the engine,so you may have to wait a little longer for smell to disapate.Cleaning the engine can help.

Need to flush the heatercore


your heater core has gone out, thats why there is no heat and thats from leakage of antifreeze. Usually when you can smell burnt antifreeze it usually points to a blown head gasket or cracked head, smell your exhaust and if you smell antifreeze theres your culprit
