Ford Thunderbird Coolant Loss, Engine Overheating, White Smoke From Exhaust

(16 reports)

White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.

Started fine, had no indication of any problems, then all of a sudden a strong odor of gas, started running rough, acting like it wanted to die. Shut it off, started it again, got blue smoke, then white out of the tailpipes, nothing but the smell of gas. -
mines has a white blue smoke comming from the tail pipes upon start up , low idel. and a lot when you takes off... but it smells alot like fuel. not sweet or oil. -
I purchased a 93 Thunderbird for my son after I had it checked out by a mechanic. I was told it checked out with no problems and if there was going to be a head gasket issue it would have surfaced long ago. Well as you probably guessed the head gasket blew within weeks of buying it. Nothing $1500 plus couldn't fix. -
