Hi just wondering if any one has any suggestions on why my car is running rough and is blowing white smoke from exhaust. Looks like a smoke screen. It is using a lot of coolant but cannot find any leaks. I was wondering if I need a new head gasket or have blown head.
There is no oil in water and no water in oil.
sounds like your ring or piston has shit it self does it idle like it only running with 5 cylinders
Yeah pretty rough. Got a quote the other day for a recon motor $4,200 or if we take out and put in $3,000, but I cant afford that at the moment.
you kidding me man that quote is a bit too much i say sound like their rippin you off at that price you might has well looking at rebuildin the motor instead
just letting u kno im in Adelaide, i blew my motor on my vs and got a second hand motor put in with only 120 XXX km ( mine had done 190 XXX) and they took out the old 1, put new 1 in in 2 days and only cost me $1500 so id say there ripping u off
Thanks for that I will make some inquiries.
Could it be manifold gasket gone? it is that or blown head gasket.
Odds on it is the inlet manifold gasket gone as James39 suggests. Simple to fix yourself.
