96 Nissan maxima
Purchased car a week ago. And today driving 45
white smoke came from the muffler. A lot of white
smoke. What could the issue be. I was told I had a
bad oil leak and was going to replace the valve
cover gasket. But this happened could it be the
head gasket is blown?
White smoke is coolant burning, so my guess would be head gasket has failed. You can perform a cylinder pressure test or leak down test to confirm.
