She started smoking, how do I make her quit??
So for the past two weeks or so I have been noticing that my heep is starting to puff out white smoke. My very first thought was,
"no worries, a little water got in the muffler"
After a few days I started to think..
"Well, maybe my head gasket is blown?"
So i've been checking my coolant level constantly and the level hasn't changed. As of right now, it seems to only puff out white smoke for a short period of time. Especially once its started, and then goes to invisible exhaust. Its not condensation from cold starts. It will smoke when I bring the revs to 2000+ as well. Even when started again at temp.
Its the 150 motor (2.5L), MPI, 220376 miles, I am the second owner and I have paperwork showing the oil has been changed every 3000 miles of its life. Runs great, no problems. Anti-freeze is lime green, but I do notice during oil changes i'm always down at least a quart and its almost sudsy brown color, but more towards black. Could this possibly be a head gasket? Or something else? help me out here..
