New to the forums here. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who post here because I would not have come this far without you guys.
My baby: 1995 2.5l Rio Grande
So, I just recently replaced my head gasket and I followed the protocols of the Haynes manual, along with some help of one of my friends- P.S. this was my first experience repairing my jeep and the learning curve was steep for me.
I had a blown head gasket. I replaced the head gasket, got the head machined- no cracks/warps, and I've changed the oil, and coolant.
THE PROBLEM(?): Turned on the car today for the first time since I replaced everything. Sounds perfect, started perfect, but I'm getting white smoke from around the exhaust manifold, I'm assuming its around the head pipe or something, but its not much smoke at all. It doesn't smell like oil, but I can't tell. I'm aware this could be coolant in the exhaust and I just need the car to run, but I shut the car off after 5 minutes because the smoke was concerning me. What should I do?
