Engine burns coolant

Post by 5str48 »



Engine billows out white smoke (coolant, I believe) after having been run, shut off and started again. Is there any way coolant can enter intake system other than blown head gasket?

I suspect you have the problem in hand, order new OEM Honda gaskets,

no other aftermarket gasket has ever held up, period.
total waste of money and time.
