Bad head gasket & the white smoke is coolant

The O2 Sensor see the coolant or water vapor
& then PCM adds fuel

So you got coolant & too much fuel out tailpipe

Do a Combustion Leak Test where you put a plastic
container over the radiator cap area & see if the
blue fluid turns yellow indicating exhaust in coolant
from head gasket

You have either blown out the head gasket or cracked the cylinder head itself. You will need to remove the cylinder head and at a minimum replace the head gasket. Inspect head surface after dis-assembly to verfiy that no cracking is present.

Sounds like a head gasket from your description. Look for coolant in oil (dipstick will look milky) If coolant is mixed in oil that would explain the rough idle (fouling plugs)

My 24 hp Briggs v twin smokes and uses oil bad. Smoke comes out of the left side when running. Can I use head gasket sealer to get me through the season?


There is no sealer that will resolve a head gasket issue, if that is what you have going on. and, if the head gasket failed remember it is a victim and not the cause, something else in happening.
I suspect that you have a compression related failure, based on the oil consumption and the smoke is probably blow by. This issue requires surgery to diagnose and fix.
