    check the thermostat may need replaced but if its got white smoke coming out the exhaust it sounds like the head gasket is blown.

    if its the head gasket you must change ... wait for it ...



    THE HEAD GASKET!! its a little gasket between the head and the block that keeps oil and coolant from mixing together.

    I used to be a noob not to long ago but stick around and you will learn alot :)

    But back to the problem ...as Wikid stated you should probably change your thermostat too because i had the EXACT same problem you do and the new thermostat cleared it up :)

    The thermostat is located at the end of the bottom radiator hose where it meets with the block. Its a fairly simple procedure, you just loosen the clamp, pull off the hose, and the thermostat should be right there. there are like 3 bolts you have to pull of but that's simple as well. At this point you just remove it and put in the new one. put the bolts back on, clamp the hose back and Voila!!! your car should be A ok :)

    and at some point if your car keeps smoking you might want to check out the head gasket :)


    keep us updated with questions :thumbsup:

    :edit:

    too answer your next question if your head gasket is blown your oil and coolant could mix together wich is not good for your engine. A blown head gasket can lead to a blown engine.

    sounds like a bad thermostat and possibly a bad head gasket

    Try a little puncuation, and at least attempt to spell a few words correctly. My head hurts when I have to read posts like that.

    D16, if you’re going to tell people to spell correctly you should not have misspelled your self.

    Punctuation

    Nice catch. I guess I have no room to talk. Just typing too fast and missed the "t".
