Engine Cooling problem
1995 Pontiac Trans Am V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 132000 miles
i just need a second opinion. I have a 95 pontiac trans am, and am doing all the work myself. I had a problem the other day it was that my car was blowing white smoke out the exaust, and low coolent light comes on. I know that some how the coolent is getting past the head gaskets and into a cylinder, but thats not my problem that I have a question about. Its a LT1 350 V8 Chevy short block under the hood, and im thinking that since I don't see any "chocolate milk" in the oil pan, that it might not be nessessarily the head gaskets or the heads being warped or cracked, but the intake manifold gaskets going bad, since I didn't notice any antifreeze in the oil pan. Does this sound like it could be true? And what suggestion would you have on this issue. I do have the top end of the engine almost pulled apart, I just need to know if you think its a wise idea to just worry about the intake, or should I also be doing the heads as well? What can cause this since this is my first chevy V8?
have the same problem?
