Hi, I've changed the head gasket, and I have still some white smoke and some liquid coming out from the exhaust pipe. I didnt put any coolant now, and yet there is already some liquid and smoke coming out. Is this normal? Is this the rest from the previous I replaced the head gasket because there was a huge coolant leak and big white smoke coming out from the exhaust pipe. Now that I replaced the head gasket, took the cylinder head to a shop who re leveled the head, cleaned the cylinder block very carefully, and couldnt see any cracks on the head nor on the block, I can see some little white smoke coming out from the exhaust and some liquid druplets. Even though I didnt put any coolant in the system right before the first start after the job, I could already see some smoke. How come? Does coolant can still be present for example in the muffler? Does it take a lot of time to take that out of the system? Does that creates smoke?

Do you
have the same problem?

Water could be still in the catalytic converter and the muffler-could be leaking at the intake manifold gasket-
