Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Is this oil, coolant, or fuel smoke?

Are you needing to add coolant or oil?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I replace the head gaskets because I though it was coolant goin in to the cylinders but it still kept going then I replace the radiator because it was mixing the oil and the coolant and the last thing I did was to replace the pcv system on it. so it keeps doing it still. is a white smoke
