Is white smoke coming out exhaust pipe? What color is your oil? Does it look like a milkshake? If yes to either question you probably have a blown head gasket.


It is either air in the system or a blown head gasket. You can buy an air bleed system at advance,autozone or harbor freight. This is the only way to truly get the air out of the system.
