Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!!
I see you said the engine light has been on indicating to change oil, but the check engine light has nothing to do with when you change the oil but rather tell you there are issues with your engine... And since it's on do you know what codes it has? If so can you post them here? If not you will need to try and cycle the key 3 times and see if any P codes appear in the odometer or get a code reader and retrieve them..
Once I know what codes it has then I can determine what's going on with your engine.. Also you said there was white smoke coming from the exhaust but does the smoke go away or stay in the air? If it goes away it's normal if it's cold and damp in your area.. But if your coolant is low then I would suspect a bad head gasket..
There is no check engine light. The check engine light is not on. I don't know what's up with that! You'd think it be on.
Oh, and the coolant is not low.
Does the smoke go away in the air? Also how far have you driven it to see if it still smokes and does it run ok?
Yeah, I think it goes away, but it was steadily putting out more smoke, continually. (not really sure what you mean by go away).
I just drove the few blocks. And ran it in idle, after adding 2 quarts of oil. Then I noticed the White Smoke. And was afraid to drive any more. I've read online in Google searches that White smoke could be very bad, and to not drive, but to take to qualified shop. I'm afraid to take to any shop, as they may take me for a ride, if you catch my drift.
By go away I mean disappear in the air or does it stay in the air and float off.. If your coolant is full then it's likely just condensation and ok... If the smoke is gone after it warms up then your ok, but if it keeps smoking when warm and starts to misfire or run hot I would stop as your head gasket is blown..
Let me know,
I think it was staying in the air and floating off. This look low to you? I'm not sure.
The coolant looks fine... So you should be ok..
I hope this helps,
