Hey all, was driving today in my ED on gas and stopped for a pite to eat, started the car up and nothing but smoke pouring from the exhaust. Swiched to fuel and no different. The oil isn't milky or anything so I am at a loss as to what has happened.

It is a constant steam of smoke and when i put my fut on the gas pedal it fills my driveway, have i stuffed the motor???

...headgasket might be gone there...if it is white smoke then water is getting into the chambers...if it is black smoke...well oil is getting in some where and burning.

I think that was correct but not 100%.

You might want to stop revving the car or even turning it one because you may just stuff it up even more.

Hmmmm, the coolant level hasn't changed at all,

If it is head gasket is it worth fixing it or replacing the motor with an au motor

doesnt oil make a blue smoke when it is burnt in the chamber?
black is usually fuel
white is water

yes especially if yours is duel fuel. usually when stem seals go the car tends to smoke only when you start it and when you put your boot into it and it usually only smokes for a second or two.
