Question about Sony Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier
When I hook my amp up and turn it on, my car starts smoking out of the exhaust...really badly. It's a white smoke...almost like steam. But it's a ton of it, more when I accelerate. Someone said it was due to the amp being bad...bought a new Xplod...did the same thing.Anyone know the problem? I've stumped many experts with this.
Dude ,The white smoke has nothing to do w/your amp you have water/coolant entering your combustion chamber,could be intake manifold, head gasket,cracked exhaust seat in the head, take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop for diagnosis and estimate ,Whatever you do ,,,,,DO NOT!! take your car to the so called 'experts' this should be a simple job to correctly diagnose and repair , try to shortcut on this job to save money buy having a 'buddie'will cost you a lot more in the long run , pay the money to have in repaired by a qualified tech, you will be glad you did, one more thing , be sure to check to make sure your cooling fan is operational....good luck Royal Trent Master auto tech [A.S.E.20 yrs]
