well I drive a 2004 civic ex and its been turbocharged inter-cooled and all the things included in turbocharging a car. Its been fine for four years but finally experiencing some problems. My car has been overheating to the point where the needle cant go any further cause its so hot and its been doing this for months now and I dont know if I have a reenforced head gasket or something but its finally taken its toll and I believed the gasket is cracked now cause im getting white smoke, you can smell coolant, and my car continues to overheat. Would a shield covering the manifold and/or a turbo wrap help the overheating problem? And could loose or leaky intercooler piping cause overheating if air is escaping before it gets to the engine?
have the same problem?
