SR20DET White Smoke

Postby 95-240T » Sat Jun 20, 2020 8:53 am

So my car has set for quite a while and it is time to let someone else have it but I wanted to get it running again, it was running when it was parked. I had some small issues that a new battery and new fuel pump rsolved, but I am now having a biger issue. There is A LOT of white smoke. I know that this is typically from a blown head gasket but I am not seeing any evidence of a blown head gasket ( milky oil or bubbles in radiator). I am how every smelling fuel in the oil which I hope means that I just need to look into the fuel injectors or something like that. (Stock 370cc injectors and stop 240sx fuel pump) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have confirmed without a doubt that it's not a head gasket, take a long screwdriver and put it to each injector individually with the tip of it while putting the other end to your ear or grab one of these Mechanics Stethoscopes ... 6467&psc=1

You should be able to hear the injector firing or not and that should tell you very quickly if there is a stuck injector.
