I believe if you see white smoke when you start your car or if there is a lot of white smoke coming from the exhaust, this means you have water in the oil. Check the oil and if it appears watery then you have a blown head gasket.
THAT IS TRUE, BUT NOT ALWAYS THE GIVEAWAY, COULD BE BLOWN BETWEEN TWO CYLINDERS WHICH WOULD CAUSE NO SMOKE BUT LOSS OF COMPRESSION. YOU COULD CHECK THAT WITH A CYLINDER LEAK TEST OR MAYBE A COMPRESION TEST
Everything! Its a honda, Get a ford!
A complete air conditioning system install on a 1988 Honda CRX has the potential to costs thousands. Everything would have to be safely installed and checked to make sure it is street legal. A bad install can lead to poisoning the community.
Low coolant, bad thermostat, clogged radiator, bad waterpump, bad headgasket, etc
air leak in the throttle or intake manifold gaskets or bad TPS sensor, disconnect TPS as a temporary fix
Your headgasket is bad, coolant is getting into the combustion chamber, hence the thick white smoke and fluid. had that happen to my dads thunderbird a few years ago
Chances are your main relay switch is bad. It is located on the driver side kick panel. I had same problem and changed mine and have not had the problem since.
pull the gas tank
the reason it may happen its because either one your fuel pump is going bad cuz my crx was doing the samething so i took out the fuel pump and tested it and it was showing that it was going bad so i replaced it and now it turns on right away no problem also change the filter why you at
No way! Honda engines can last up to 300,000 miles - engine and transmission. Unless the engine check light is on or if it's running badly, there's no problem.
Possible head/headgasket failure.
if water is in oil,could be a bad headgasket!have it checked out!or a bad intake gasket.
it would me you have a bad headgasket. a cracked head, or a bad intake gasket. have a good day!!
The car doesn't want to shift properly.
It makes alot of noise and overheats, leaks out of bottom of pump
two things you cracked head or headgasket went bad
Overeheating is usually caused by a bad thermostat, blocked radiator or leaking headgasket.
maybr the headgasket goes bad or slow. it will also cause the car to overheat all the time.
Following the simple checks in the service manual will tell you if it is bad or not.
No. Water is a normal byproduct of the combustion process. It can also be an indication of an internal engine issue such as a failed headgasket.No. Water is a normal byproduct of the combustion process. It can also be an indication of an internal engine issue such as a failed headgasket.
Headgasket or head may have gone bad and hydrolically locked the motor.
Check the hydraulic fluid level for the clutch master cylinder, it may be empty. If it is empty you can fill it with DOT 3 brake fluid. This may temporarily fix the problem but you still have a leak in the system.
Honda civic runs on cold bad sign?
possible bad valve guides or blown head gasket possible bad valve guides or blown headgasket
