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?
