If a gasket and 2 cyl heads had to be changed on an Odyssey due to white smoke in the exhaust could this have been due to another repair done poorly?

Not probably. It was caused from overheating.

an exhaust flange gasket, is the gasket,commonly called a donut that is used to seal where the exhaust pipe is bolted to the exhaust manifold

sounds like u slipped on the gasket or u have another leak. r u loosing coolant still? coolant usually only smells when driping on hot exhaust.

No, the exhaust gases are too hot. Generally a collapsible metal gasket is used on exhaust.

The exhaust manifold needs to have a gasket in place to help seal the juncture between the manifold and the engine. After the gasket and gasket sealer are in place, tighten the bolts for the exhaust manifold. The exhaust pipe can then be replaced on the new exhaust manifold.

i dont know what you mean exactly, but if you mean that the exhaust has changed to a steam you most likely have a head or a head gasket problem.

You will need to remove the exhaust manifold retaining bolts in your 1993 Chevy Astro. Remove the exhaust manifold. Remove the exhaust manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new exhaust manifold gasket.

If fumes are coming into a car it is most likely not going to be coming from a head gasket. The more likely places will be a blown exhaust gasket, exhaust doughnut, or some other type of exhaust leak.

there is no gasket on the exhaust manifold. i have a 93 escort lx wagon and i have a leak somewhere and i looked at the exhaust diagram at my local napa and it doesnt show a gasket. * Not sure which diagram you were looking at but there is DEFINITELY a gasket... Look up exhaust manifold on any popular car site and you will clearly see one.

if it is just a blown exhaust manifold gasket it can ruin your valves, so replace it correctly and make sure everything is clean before putting on the new gasket

If the exhaust manifold gasket is leaking the only fix is to replace it with a new one.

User Avatar

I would check the Flange gasket. It is the gasket that sits between your exaust manifold and your exaust pipes

User Avatar

An exhaust leak is usually the result of a bad gasket or a cracked manifold. For a proper fix, either the gasket or both the manifold and the gasket must be replaced.

User Avatar

Most connections / joints between parts have a gasket to prevent leaks. So a failed gasket is a typical cause of leaks, including where the exhaust pipes connects to the exhaust manifold.

Loud exhaust noise from the front end is usually caused by one of several problems. The exhaust manifold gasket could be blown, the doughnut gasket could be bad, or there could be a crack in the exhaust itself.

User Avatar

In most cases a new gasket is required, but no sealant.

User Avatar

Exhaust are longer than intake. Exhaust goes thru the loop in the gasket, intakes set outside gasket.

User Avatar

Some exhaust systems use gaskets and some don't.

Exhaust leak at Exhaust manifold to head gasket or oring at exhaust manifold pipe.

User Avatar

White smoke exhaust usually means either a head gasket leak or an intake gasket leak. Both are cheaper to repair sooner than later.

User Avatar

Intake and exhaust manifold gaskets are also replaced along with the head gasket. Head is inspected and if cracked it is replaced. Head bolts should also be replaced with new ones.

Remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold. Remove the manifold bolts. Remove the manifold. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new manifold gasket.
