HOLDEN COMMODORE COOLANT PROBLEM

2004 Holden Commodore • 80,000 miles

When I start my car I get white smoke coming from the exhaust and I continuously get this gassy smell from the passenger side. Also, only just this morning the car would start, idle really high and then die all on its own. When I started it again and applied more throttle the car stayed on but the white smoke was thicker.

Are you using coolant, any misfire?

I am using coolant and the car does shake when idling (misfire) even though the spark plugs were replaced barely a month ago! When the car takes on load or goes up a hill it seems like its revs are too low

I would get it checked for a blown head gasket, get a TK head check done most workshops can do this simple chemical test.
