1993 Lexus ES300 Q&A
1993 Lexus ES300 Question: My car idles rough when idling and with white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
White smoke comes out of the tail pipe on idle and there is a gas smell .It feels like the car will shut down--missing really bad when I stop. There is a strong smell of gas coming in the car from the vents. - Visitor
Unfortunately the earlier Es300 did blow head gaskets. Is the coolant system discolored brown, mysteriously loosing coolant or are you experiencing higher than normal running temperatures? Does the smoke out the exhaust smell slightly sweet? - patrick mannion
