Blown head gasket ?

Asked by May 17, 2016 at 02:48 AM about the 1993 Lincoln Town Car Executive

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Im trying to figure out what's wrong with my car it
does not over heat but is throwing out white
smoke every time I try to drive it . I check the oils
and everything is fine but its consuming a lot of
antifreeze. It does throw out white smoke from the
tail pipe too . ( miliage is around 98xxx)

1 Answer


White smoke is usually a blown head gasket, it just hasn't got bad enough yet to contaminate the engine oil or the coolant yet, an engine block check can verify if it is the case, you can buy the kit and do it yourself or take it to a shop and have it done.
