OK first take out all the spark plugs, put a cooling system pressure tester on the radiator, make sure the cooling system is full of antifreeze (so you can see it) pump up the tester to 20-25psi and check forany leaks and repair them. pump it back up and watch the guage, pump it up and leave it on for an hour or so if it starts to drop off pump it back up, get a really bright flashlight and look into all the cylinders where you took the plugs out and I bet you will see antifreeze in one or more of the cylinders if one hour doesnt do it leave it on longer I feel you hve a bad headgasket , please let me know if you need any further help,
please leave me a favorable rating thank you, Randy

2004 dodge durango 5.7 hemi runs real rough white smoke comes out then blows oil cap off.


Ah oh..white smoke is water in the cylinder and cap blowing off is compressed air in the crank case..sounds like you have a blown head gasket or intake or both...have your radiator and block pressure tested..if gasket is leaking it will fail to hold pressure.. Check your oil for water sometimes a bad intake gasket will let water in the oil.good luck..

ALOT OF SMOKE FROM THE EXHAUST


Blue smoke is oil and means you have internal engine damage.
White smoke with a sweet smell means you have a blown head gasket (check antifreeze, if it's low that is another sign)
White smoke with no real smell is water in the gas tank. Grab some water remover.
Black smoke is a sign your burning to much gas, you need a tune up.

Car smoke real bad when you crank it up


Sounds like you could have a leaking fuel injector or a bad fuel pressure regulator causing a rich condition at start up or possibly bad valve guide seals causing oil to leak into the combustion chamber, is the smoke blue or black when you start the engine up???

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad


This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)

My mileage is over 130,000 ansd my car smokes when i drive it. It's white smoke. What's wrong with my car?


white smoke means water or antifreeze. blue smoke means oil. black smoke means rich fuel mixture. So if it is white you are burning antifreeze which usually means you have a bad head gasket or intake manifold gasket. is your car over heating? that is the main symptom of a bad head gasket. how much white smoke are you getting if it is not much it could be just condensation and nothing to worry about.

white smoke is usually an indication of water in the engine you may have a bad head gasket or cracked block or water is building up in your muffler or tailpipe
