Ok so for the last few days I have noticed my gas mileage drop even worse, there has been white smoke coming from my exhaust, my car has been wanting to overheat if it sits in a spot for more then 10 mins while running until I get moving again, and then today my oil light comes on and I'm about 2 quarts low....my question is head gaskets or no??

Poor gas mileage
Oil consumption
Overheating


Do you see bubbles in the overflow tank?

Do you see oil and antifreeze mix anywhere?

White smoke out the tailpipe is coolant
Blue smoke out the tailpipe is oil

You said white but I think it might be blue?

Either way it doesn't sound good.



It's sounding like a head gasket failure to me. Your 02 sensors are probably fouled causing the bad gas mileage.

Bummer man, best of luck. HG job isn't that bad.

I don't see any oil and antifreeze mixed anywhere, that was also another thing I checked, but i t seems like head gaskets is what it is gonna be...oh well a look on the bright side I guess...time for a bigger cam! :D
