Why is there smoke coming out of here?


Why is there smoke coming out of here? Does this mean i have a bad head gasket? And what is that sound?

It looked like it was coming from the exhaust manifold, or valve cover. Have you done a compression test on your cylinders to determine if it's the headgasket? As for the sound, i could only imagine it being a turbo problem, but I've never heard anything like that from any DSM.

Agreed; it looks like it's coming from the exhaust manifold, but here's a few things you can do:

1. As mentioned, do a compression test
2. Do a leak-down test. It will tell you quite a lot about what is going on.
3. Use some Seafoam to search for exhaust leaks.

As for the sound...do you mean the "beeping" sound? If so, I haven't got a clue.

I would check to see if you have a leak on the exhaust manifold first its a little easier to check the the head gasket and you would also h\get a better look to see if you blow the head gasket

i watched the video and agree with everyone above ^^^

the smoke is blue because your burning oil and it could be a couple of things, you won't know for sure until you do the above.
I wasn't able to see what bov your running but my 1g bov made the same whistle at 3-4 lbs of vacuum, i could get it to whistle on command even being recirc'd.

there might not be anything wrong with your motor, you might just need a new valve cover gasket. hopefully everything checks good man...
