Re: White Smoke From Exhaust

Most of those you have mentioned are symptoms of hg failure, also look for a mayo like substance in your oil filler cap or sludge/oil in the water tank

Re: White Smoke From Exhaust

As above, sounds like HG. look around all the coolant hoses and the radiator to make sure that you havent got a leak somewhere. Or take it down a garage and get them to sniff test it. Will soon tell you if its the HG or not.

If you see a problem post, please click the report button
