My car has white smoke coming from the exhaust


he causes of white exhaust smoke can vary; however, it is common to see white exhaust smoke when first starting a car, especially on cooler days. This is generally steam caused by condensation. As the engine warms up and the condensation dissipates the white exhaust smoke (steam) is no longer seen. If excessive white exhaust smoke is present well after the engine warms up, it is necessary to have the car inspected for possible internal coolant leaks. Indicators of an internal coolant leak include billowing white exhaust smoke accompanied by a sweet odor or a low coolant reservoir level. An internal coolant leak can also contaminate the engine oil giving it a frothy, milky appearance. Even small amounts of coolant entering the combustion chamber will produce white exhaust smoke.
One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.
Never remove the radiator cap or coolant reservoir cap while the engine is hot or running as it can cause serious injury; always allow the car to cool down completely first. Checking for a low coolant level in the reservoir is the first step in determining if coolant loss is causing the white exhaust smoke. If the coolant reservoir is at the proper level but excessive white exhaust smoke is present, a cooling system pressure check is required to determine where, if any, coolant leaks are located.

make sure to check your coolant tank at every fill-up for a few fill-ups. This problem has a way of coming back if you don't top up your coolant at just the right times.

Coolant level keeps dropping and fan shays on after the engine is switched off


this could indicate a leak, you may want to check the pressure, I would suggest upgrading you liquid cooling system to something that includes a condenser. You can get these systems now for the same price as Water cooling systems were when they first came out. Condensed Cooling systems are cheap as chips considering they used to go for over 800 now you can pick them up for between 150 and 300 Water cooling systems have a top price mark of 150 while liquid cooling systems have a top price of 160

Condensed Cooling systems are reliable, compact and will keep your computer cool is a fridge, I have a Computer with a Condensed Cooling system in it, I have a custom built compartment on the side of the case were I cool my drinks. The condenser is a sealed unit and the coolant is already in it so you dont have to worry about coolant level drop of with these, the pipes are insulated, though you can get pipes for the system that have lights on them, the radiator is always warm but i would say thats the only thing in the system or entire computer that is warm, there is no fluid to top up, there is a sealed unit which comes connected to the condenser which is ice cold I think it is some kind of tank. But that is it ! 2 bracket mounted sealed units a radiator and a load of insulated pipes that connect to the heat sinks.
I assume everything is pumped around by pressure or that the pump is in the tank / other sealed unit, but I don't know wear the pump is, it just works.
I have herd many good things in reviews of Condensed Cooling Systems one of the main things people seem to pick up on is that it saves on the cost of having to buy fluid, to top up the tank and the radiator and the cost of all the replacement parts any time there is a leak, accessories. You just buy these things and they last forever, they are rated to last 16 years before needing maintenance. I was like what ? in 16 years condenser technology will be as old as the straw hut and I will be 42 and hopefully in University by than.

But what got my is that it uses a condenser (a computer with a condenser in it) and will last 16 years before in needs maintenance (maintenance not replacement)

Dude that seems like a pretty reliable piece of kit and well worth the money.

Engine over heating


It sounds like the crack in the head is in a location that is allowing coolant to escape. Cracked heads can also allow oil to leak, provide poor compression, cause smoke and make the engine seem like it is not firing all cylinders (called "missing").

By removing the thermostat, you are allowing the coolant to circulate freely between the engine and radiator, instead waiting for the temperature to rise in the engine behind the thermostat. This reduces the operating temperature of the engine and lowers the cooling system pressure. Lowering the pressure is what you're after so the coolant will not be trying to escape.

You may be overheating because the coolant level in the engine and radiator is too low and not getting proper circulation from one to the other. The thermostat allows the engine to stay hot - and make heat for the cabin. Removing the thermostat generally makes the engine run cooler.

First, check the coolant level by removing the cap completely from the radiator filler neck when the engine is cold. The coolant should be an inch (or 2 at the most) below the top of the filler neck of the radiator when warm, but may be 2 or 3 inches below when cold. If you cannot see the coolant level in the radiator, add a 50% mixture or water and antifreeze directly to the radiator until it is 3 or 4 inches below the top of the filler neck. Start the engine, set the heater to hot and high fan and wait for the engine to warm up. Check the coolant level in the radiator regularly while the engine is running. Watch the temperature gauge if your car has one. Add additional amounts of the 50% coolant and water mixture as needed - but only to 3 or 4 inches below the top of the filler neck. Once the engine is warmed up completely, top off the coolant level to withing 1 or 2 inches of the top of the filler neck.

If you're loosing coolant, try loosening the radiator cap (wait until the engine is cold first!). This will bring the pressure in the system down to 0. With 0 pressure, the coolant won't be trying to squirt through the crack. You will need to make sure that the temperature of the engine does not exceed 212F (100C) otherwise it boil over and can result in even more damage to the engine. Check your oil level and coolant level regularly. The coolant reservoir will no longer be the place to check the level - as when the coolant overflows - it will do so to the ground because the radiator cap is loosened.

If the oil is milky, then coolant is leaking into the crankcase and is contaminating the oil. Water is not a good lubricant and will cause catastrophic failure if not repaired. Needless to say, you should have this fixed or replaced as soon as possible.

I hope this helps and good luck!

It's normal to has condensation (water droplets) under the front condenser and the receiver dryer.
Here is a picture of the receiver drier. mustgo_48.jpg

There are two possible cause of the low heat condition.
1)low coolant level
Let the engine cool for 5 hours. Open the coolant reserve tank to equalizes the pressure Use a flashlight to inspect the coolant level. Top off with coolant only.
===== 2)clogged radiator and / or heater core. partially stuck thermostat
Radiator need to flush every 2 years /24,000 miles.
Back flush will keep the radiator clean.
Dirt can collect in the heater core will reduce heating efficient.

A radiator shop can change the thermostat and back flush for under $150.
DIY can be as low as $60. THIS IS TASK has difficult scale of 7/10.
Please check out the waste coolant disposal site before you attempt this job.

How to remove radiator fan?


Hi. Here's the procedure if you are going to replace the radiator fan.

Things You'll Need:
  • New radiator
  • Container for old coolant
  • Set of socket wrenches
  • Ford disconnect tools or crescent wrenches
  • Flush treatment
  • Coolant
  • 1 Disconnect the negative battery terminal to prevent damage to any electrical parts. Open the drain **** on the lower rear of the radiator, remove the radiator cap and drain the coolant into an empty container. Remove the overflow tube from the radiator and the coolant recovery bottle.
  • 2 Unbolt the shroud with a 10 mm socket wrench and position it over the fan, out of the way. For a 5.0 liter engine on a 1991 through 2001 Explorer, also disconnect the electric fan wires and remove the radiator shroud. For a 4.6 liter SOHC engine, remove the A/C tubing from the retainer clips on top of the radiator.
  • 3 Use a Ford model specific disconnect tool to remove the transmission coolant lines on an automatic transmission. You can use two crescent wrenches as a substitute for the disconnect tool, just be careful not to twist the lines.
  • 4 Remove the four bolts holding the radiator in place with a 10 mm socket wrench. Place a piece of cardboard on the side of the radiator facing the engine as you remove it, to prevent damage to any engine components.
  • 5 Crawl under your Explorer and take the cooling fan out for 2002 and newer models. Again, you need some Ford specific disconnect tools to do this. Remove the fan bolts as well as the shroud, followed by the 4 radiator push pins. Also remove the A/C condenser brackets near the rear of the radiator, and wire the A/C condenser in place to keep it from getting damaged.
  • 6 Remove the radiator from the engine compartment. Models made between 1991 and 2001 will let you lift the radiator out by itself. For a 2002 or newer model, pull the radiator up, rest it on the wall of the engine compartment, and separate the A/C condenser from the radiator.
  • 7 Install the new radiator in the engine compartment. Once you have it resting in place, reattach all components in reverse order. Use a flush treatment, then replace the coolant. Turn the car on and let the car idle, with the heater on and the radiator cap removed, until it reaches normal operating temperature. Top off your coolant as needed.

    FUM21D upright freezer, NOT frost free. Top shelf coil cooling, others are not. Sides are not as warm as usual. Running constantly. Coolant leak? Why top shelf cooling?


    I note this is in fact not a frost free freezer and that there is not an evaporator OR a condensor fan. If it is running constantly and the cooling coils are clear as in not covered in lint then the most likely cause is a low coolant level. A low coolant level will allow partial but not total system cooling. The only way to know for sure is to have the systems pressures tested. At that point who ever checks the coolant pressure will have to determine why the coolant leaked out, repair the leak and then re-service the system with coolant.
