What is the color of the smoke and where is it coming from. Be more specific.[/Quote:d7dd7e9ede]
my car is a toyota camry. It is giving out too much white smoke from the muffler. Sometimes the smoke is thick, and sometimes the smoke is not so thick but it is still smoking. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what is wrong with it.[/Quote:d7dd7e9ede]
Could be a blown headgasket or blown headTry replacing the thermostat-not it do the following below:
Have it block and pressure tested-do the block first to pinpoint a combustion leaking into the cooling system or a gas analyzer to sniff for hydrocarbons at the radiator fill neck.
Pressure test: do not do a pressure test if there's leakage at the headgasket this might cause coolant into the cylinders and lock it up or bend a connecting rod if cranked thereafter. The headgasket should be repaired before doing the pressure test.
If the block and pressure test passes check the following: Thermostat, Pressure test the Rad. Cap, Clogged radiator, Fan clutch, Radiator electrical fan, collaspe hoses, water pump.-You're burning the coolant.
