White smoke when I start!

Hello I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. After changing the thermestat the car stopped overheating. However, white smoke is being released through the exhaust pipe. is this a head gasket problem? If so why can't I find the do it yourself section in my manual?

Thanks

Well, it sounds like it could either be a head gasket or a cracked head. (sorry for being so blunt with possible bad news)

The reason that you can't find a "diy" manual is because your car is too new and the manuals have not been released yet.

For the most part, you can look at one of the older versions of the manuals and the information will probably be the same for your car. They only change when something is added or taken off the cars. The torque specs should be the same for the like engine sizes.

I hope this helps

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring just started overheating. I started to notice I wasn't getting any heat, not sure if the two are connected. Then the gauge needle starts to adjust from middle to extremely hot. ...


first make sure you don't have white smoke coming out of tail pipe then check the radiator if it is cold after warmed up then you could go to the two main hose coming from the radiator be careful one could be hot follow the cold one ie water pump thermostat head gasket are as easy as a radiator cap good luck

Smoke is coming out from under my hood...checked antifreeze and oil so it fine


white smoke usualy tells about a leakage in the cooling. check that. dont forgett to refill. get it repaired or DIY. attention: could be really hot.

if it smells like fuel, a fuel line is broken. then dont drive any more since it can catch fire.

if the smoke is not white, go to the repair shop instantly.
