1999 Honda Accord Ex blows white smoke when stepping on the accelerator.

Asked by Apr 30, 2015 at 12:08 AM about the 1999 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I already had a problem with my car over heating, so I took it to a shop where they supposedly fixed my problem. They said they did a radiator flush and changed my head gasket because it was cracked. They said they did a test drive and everything was ok, but now I have this problem. Every time I accelerate white smoke comes out of my exhaust and my speed decreases so I can't go faster then 30mph. help me please

Still sounds like a head gasket or head problem. Did they have the head checked for cracks while it was getting resurfaced?

I don't think so. I don't get it, if they gave it the ok, why would I this problem.

Oh boy, is the coolant level dropping? Do you see bubbles in the radiator when you first start it? Both are signs of combustion gasses entering the cooling system, I would take it back, tell or show them what is happening. Every head gasket job I did, I always had the head checked for cracks when it was getting resurfaced. I hope they resurfaced the head and just didn't put it right back on without doing anything to it.

If the heads were not properly torqued correctly after the engine heated up and cooled down a few times the head gaskets can begin leaking again because of the expansion and contraction of the engine. HTH. -Jim

Agree with tennisshoes,do a compression check ,sound,s like they just put gasket on,and did not have the head checked.
