periodic white smoke from exhaust

Resolved Question:

periodic white smoke from exhaust

Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
White smoke is caused by water. I suggest pressure testing the cooling system as the most likely cause is a blown head gasket. Remove the spark plugs and put pressure to the system and see if coolant is going into the cylinders.

Is there anything that will fix temporarily? Stop leak? Anyting.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
Stop leak may help it depends on how big the leak is....worth a try. If you use the stop leak make sure when you fix the leak you flush the system good to get it all out as it can plug up other areas and cause over heating issues.
