JUST A GENERAL QUESTION. IF MY HEAD GASKETS WERE BLOWN, OR IF I HAVE WARPED HEADS, WOULDN'T I DEFINATELY HAVE WHITE SMOKE COMING FROM THE EXHAUST? MY LOCAL DEALER IS TELLING ME THAT I EITHER HAVE BLOWN HEAD GASKETS OR DAMAGED HEADS, BUT I HAVE NO SMOKE COMING OUT. THEY ALSO TELL ME THAT I HAVE 3 BARS OF BLOWBY. I NOTICE NO POWER LOSS AT ALL.... THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT I HAVE IS SOMETIMES WHEN I GET DOWN ON THE ACCELARATOR, THEN COOLANT BACKS OUT OF THE DEGAS BOTTLE.. WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS??? PLEASE HELP.. THANKS

white smoke out the exhaust is egr cooler not head gaskets , if you are puking out the degas bottle it is suspect to be head gaskets , but could also be egr cooler just beginning to go, if they diagnosed properly then its probably the head gaskets , warped heads is a possibility , no way they can know that till heads are off and checked
