Could still be going into the cylinders and out the exhaust. I had this problem on my EA, oil was also still clean. Turned out to be porosity holes in the head.


can i ask how does it smell like when it comes out of the exhaust? cause my exhaust smells funny :S. if its running rich it should smell more like petrol.......and if its lean it should smell more like CO. but mixed with coolant does it smell sourish? cause my exhaust smells a bit rich and "sour" or foul smell like its off. im not loosing coolant i dont think :S

Your sour smell could be normal exhaust smell from Catylitic convertor. Smells like "rotten eggs" Hydrogen sulfide gas.


Exhaust smells like coolant if coolant is going into the cylinders.
