Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Does it go away when the engine warms up? Does it "chirp" when you blip the throttle? The changes you made had nothing to do with this, but when you started the cold engine and twisted the throttle to hear your new power the head gasket went away. Harmless until it gets real bad and does not go away when the engine heats up.

Tip

Power Steering Noise Grand Caravan & Town & Country


2001-2007 Models Do you hear your power steering wining. Been to the dealer saying "Its the pump going bad"......"System needs to be flushed, fluid is dirty" & my favroite "Your rack is bad". Folks 90% of the problems is the power steering reservoir filter. To change this filter you have to change the reservoir. The reservoir has 2 hoses attached to it, one small(return line), one large(exit/feed line). When the fluid returns to the reservoir through the small line into the reservoir & through the filter, back into the system. Filters get cloged. To change you will need. One NEW Reservoir $28 Chrysler Part # 4743012AA , buy this first looking at it explains alot. 2qts ATF 4 $11 to change the fluid in the system. Socket set with 6mm to 10mm & 4in extension, 1 channel lock to remove clamps on lines, flat head screwdriver. Old towels or rags, 1 turkey baster $1, 1 paint nipple or small ballon to fit over the small return line opening on the new reservoir(SEE PART #2!!!), 1 old clear washer fliud jug. To remove the reservoir sitting right on top to the drivers side. You will need a 2nd person for PART #2. Run car 10 min. to warm up the fluid & get it pumping through the system. Shut car off, put towels around the reservoir. Remove cap throw away. Using the turkey baster remove as much of the fluid as you can. Remove & slide the clamps back out of the way 6in. Remove lines fluid will come out of the lines. Remove the 2 bolts from the mounting bracket( DO NOT LOSE). Snap or cut the clip holding the 2 cable on the front of the reservoir. Looking at the new reservoir see the slot on the bottom, theres a 10mm bolt underneath. Use 10mm & extension, loosen the bolt only. Remove reservoir. When putting new one on DON"T PUT the RETURN LINE ON. Part #2 New reservoir in place???? Everything tight ,but not over tightened?? Remove some of the towels except under the return line area. Using the paint nipple place over the return line opening on the reservoir, this is important that the system retains presure. Smash the old washer fluid jub to place into the engine compartment up near the reservoir, DON'T LET TOUCH THE EXHAUST. Place the return line in the jug. Fill the reservoir to the top, but not into the neck. Place cap on reservoir. With a 2nd person starting the car for 3 or 4 seconds. Window or door open so they can hear you say "shut it off". Watch the fluid level drop in the reservoir, DON"T LET IT RUN EMPTY!!!! Holding the jug when doing this the old fluid will pump out of the system into the jug, you will be able to see this with the clear jug.. Repeat untill 1qt of fluid has been added to the reservoir & pumped through the system. Remove jug from car, empty the fluid into the empty AFT 4 bottle. Put jug back into place, repeat the Fill/Start/Shut off. Is the fluid running clean REAL RED into the jug, if not repeat till it runs RED. Remove paint nipple place line on quickly. Put clamp into place. Fill the reservoir to the top fill line. Remove all towels. Start the van, check the fluid level.Fill if needed. To bleed the system of any air that might have gotten in, with the car running turn the wheel all the way to one side & then the other without hitting the stops do this about 10 times. Check for leaks. Check fluid level. Your done clean up mess. Hope all your noise has gone away..... 2003 Grand Caravan ES by Chris

If it is black smoke, it could be running rich and the correct carb will fix that. If it is blue smoke, then it is burning oil.

I have a 350small block engine and when i start the car white smoke comes fromm exhaust at a astedily flow


sounds like a blown head gasket. if it lacks power, misfires or perculates in the overflow jug (sounds like a coffee maker brewing) after it reaches operating temp when you cut the vehicle off,then its a blown cylinder head gasket.

Delonghi coffee machine ecam23. Milk comes out of jug when turning machine on and milk also comes out after the water when cleaning the spout on the jug.


I think the ECAM has a second solenoid at the front near the milk jug. That solenoid valve might be stuck open.

Why is my exhaust leaking oil and blowing out grayish color smoke


Your piston rings are worn to the point that oil is getting into the cylinder and some is being ejected through the exhaust and some of the oil is being burned causing the grayish smoke.

I got a friend to put valve gasket covers on my marquis once he finished we cranked the car a lottttttt of smoke started coming from the tailpipe and from under the car so he went back in and resealed the...


im not gonna defend the guy, but when an inexperienced person changes a valve gasket, oil drips everywhere . it gets on your exhaust manifold and will burn off causing your car to smoke like cheech and chong!. as for smoke coming out of your tailpipe. that could be something completely different., why did you think you needed to have your valve cover gasket replaced? were you burning oil. or was oil pouring out of the valve cover? did you check your oil dipstick? was it milky? or clumpy? was your car losing power? need a lil more info. starter could be he shorted it. or it was just time for it to go. starters just go sometimes. no warning. but like i said no info. smoke deffinately worse cause of oil on exaust manifold. it will burn off eventually. hopefully that will be the end of the probs. but check that oil. look for color like milk. power in car getting less and less. if thats the case. than blown head gasket. many other possibilities. does it leak coolant? maybe freeze plug popped out. lets just hope alot of spilled oil and big smiles. :)

Delonghi magnifica promblems with water and milk


Frothing jug
For milk frothing issues, soak the milk jug cover in hot water and rinse several times. If it has a froth control that can be removed by sliding in the direction of travel towards the edge whilst jiggling it gently up and down. Clean off the little o-ring with a toothpick, be gentle. The control should easily slide and click back in place when done.

Froth still no good? Examine the milk coupling to ensure the o-rings are in the right spot and are pliable and undamaged. There should be an o-ring (usually green) on the top spigot, a (black) o-ring at the front of the bottom spigot and a (red) oring at the rear. The groove halfway along the spigot should be clear. Now with the toothpick and a hot moist cloth clean all the crud from the milk coupling, especially inside the smaller spigot. Check the tiny hole at the back of the larger spigot is not blocked.

Check the flow from the hot water spout is good. If not, there are internal issues, try descaling. If it is, test the frothing jug, if it is still weak either the jug cover or the milk coupling needs to be replaced. Get them to try a known good test jug at your local coffee service center to find out which, most will be happy to do this at the counter.

Have a 95 heritage softail, added new pipes and a new intake, after riding it a month it developed a kinda pulsing throat sound in the exhaust. it seem to cycle every 4th exhaust.


The only suggestion I can give you is to do a compression test on the engine too see if there's a difference between the two cylinders. Of course, it could be the scavenging effect of the pipes as well.

Good Luck
Steve
