2006 Chrysler Sebring Repair Question
Car blows a big cloud of white smoke
Are you using any coolant?
no I'm not losing coolant. I forgot to add the car looses power when this happens.
Is there any odd smell about the smoke?
I can't tell to be honest with you.
White smoke is usually a coolant leak into the cylinders, it can be associated with a sweet smell, brake fluid and trans oil also will produce white smoke but the chances of this is quite improbable in modern cars, i would get the head check done to disprove any head related problem, this is a quick and cheap chemical test to check for Co in the cooling system, apart from that i can only think that it my be a fuel contamination problem, did it start after refueling?
I refueled last Sunday and it started Monday,but I refueled again Thursday and it is still doing it.
sounding a bit like a fuel contamination problem, change the filter and drain the fuel out of the old filter into a clean glass container and see how it looks, if cloudy and smells off it will be bad fuel.
Thank you for your help.
