Answer 1
White smoke is normally coolant or in some cases oil (be careful and apply common sense not to burn yourself) In the instance you have a blow head gasket- -Check for irregular engine idle operation -Check for oil and water contamination -Check with the radiator cap off, foaming of small bubbles appear from cooling system when idling. -Check for coolant smell or rapid condensation build up on your hand from exhaust -Water/coolant in the bore when left over night -Drive the car till hot as possible, quickly remove spark plugs and insert a long enough screw driver in each port and pull out after 30 seconds, if condensation is seen on the tip, head gasket is to be replaced and head checked. -
