White smoke out of radiator

Recommended Posts

Are you sure it's not just steam? Or is it there when the motor is cold too? Actual smoke would have to be coming from a head gasket leak, but with as big of a leak as it would take to get enough combustion gasses into the cooling system to have exhaust smoke in the radiator, it would be blowing coolant out like crazy from the over pressurized system.

It's only there when it's hot. Also I took the cylinder block off and that gasket was torn. The cylinder head gasket was fine though

Only smoke there is going to be from burned pre-mix. Only place that it can get from the combustion chamber into the cooling system is through the head or head gasket. Since you haven't said anything about it blowing coolant out, and it's only there when the motor is hot, I'm betting on coolant vapor rather than smoke.
