And Moble synthic burning = white!

It happened to me. I was trying to chase down that "damn coolant/headgasket issue" and it wasn't that at all...ha, that was a horrible day of trouble shooting.

I just put a new head on, with all the gaskets, and I get the same smoke I got before I put the new head on. And it leaves the back of my car all black too...

The cheapest way and time saving is to go buy a bottle of smoke stop at a local auto part store.

smoking just means your fast, lol. honestly i cant stand my cars to smoke. if need be, id rebuild the whole thing. but if youve got a dime a dozen block, just swap it with on you know runs, with no smoke.
