  • Smoking

    First i wanted to thank supercharged/ billy for the carb cleaner idea to find the leak. I found it... It was the intake manifold gasket and i have replaced it. The engine runs smooth and sounds great but it smokes excessively. I replaced the head and all the gaskets are new. I used brake cleaner to clean head. It also idles low, around 500rpm. Egr is blocked off but not pluged into anything and i still haven't tapped the coolant tube for the second sensor.

    Anyone? I doubt it could be the bottom end cause it was fine before.

      What color smoke?


      The idle could be from the coolant sensor not being hooked up...if its not plugged in, it will ploom out black smoke and idle really low. Just pluggin it in while the engine bay is cold, but the coolant temp is rising will cause it to run rich too and ploom out black smoke.


      Did you forget to plug the IAC in?

      Is the IAC clean?

      Put you finger over the hole for the IAC. the engine should idle about 600 with you finger over the hole, turn the car off, plug the IAC back in, it should relearn idle if the IAC is good.


      If you have white smoke, its most likly a crappy oil control rings.

              Blue-ish white-ish for oil...white for water/steam, and black from over rich.

                Its blueish white... Could it really be the piston rings? The bottom end ran fine before i switched heads. Its been smoking since i first started it after the swap. theres nothing else it can be?

                    Or run about 1/2 a can of seafoam through your PCV and then let it sit for a couple of hours. I'm sure you could do the piston soak with the seafoam also. You may have not had the surfaces clean enough on the head/block for the HG to seal right but still give you decent compression #'s. Are you for sho that your car is burning oil? Read, do you look @ your dipstick everyday before you start it for a week and 1/2 to make sure that your oil level is dropping noticeably while not adding oil until it gets low? Get some good data for us and we can help you better.

                        whats seafoam? Im going to get a compression done this week. I would check to see if its burning but i do not drive the car yet... So far i only start it for a little while and have driven it around the block twice. Should I just leave it running?

                          Go to the parts store. Hell... even Meijers carries it. You'll see it.... it's in a big metal can.
