My car is blowing white smoke out the exhaust
I have a 99 Honda accord I just replaced the main relay and then on my way to work the radiator hose blew off so I fixed it and refilled my radiator fluid but now its blowing white smoke ???
Please tell me you let the engine cool down before you added the water. Or had the engine running. If not I fear that the block or head. Hot steel+Cold water= Trouble.
Or.... When the engine got hot the head gasket blow out. Bottom line, white smoke is the coolent mixing with the fuel.
I agree white smoke is coolant in the cylinders. Hopefully just a head gasket and not a cracked head.
Well I did let it cool first but I'm pretty sure I cracked a head gasket it shakes like crazy now
Plus on my way back not only did the hose blow again but this time it blew apart the part the hose connects to...FML
Yeah it's time to pull the head and see what you are up against.
I agree. Head work time.
