I posted the other day about my car smoking out of the tail pipe. We were advised to replace the engine, and before getting a second opinion, (stupid) we agreed to have the engine replaced. After we brought it home, we found out the next morning that it still had the problem we originally took it to the dealer for. The car is a v6 with less than 50,000 miles, it ran great, and none of my trouble lights ever showed up. We have spent a huge amount of money and still have clouds of white smoke coming out of the tailpipe when we start the car in the morning. The repair shop said maybe I got a bad engine. What is the likelyhood that both of these engines were shot? The first time we took it to them they said nothing was wrong with it and it ran great. Four days later it had 2 bent rods and a cracked o ring. We think the anitfreeze is leaking somewhere into the exhaust but we're not sure. If I got a new motor wouldn't that have fixed the problem? We don't want the same shop to look at this again, so we are going somewhere else for a diagnosis. Any thoughts?
have the same problem?
