87 interstate

Postby fogrocker » Mon Jul 26, 2010 12:48 pm



My wing has taken to blowing coolant smoke outa the right exuast pipe on ocasion. I know the probeble cause is bad head gasket but.... it only does it after coming down off freeway speeds, blows it out and then is fine for a while..... later that day it may or may not do it again.
My question is,, is there any cross over in the intake side such as coolant warming the fuel/carbs/intake manifolds that it might be sucking it in there?

No..... Just a bad head gasket.

And if it isnt seen to it can destroy the head... super heated steam will destroy an aluminum in short time
