Car randomly spews massive whitest smoke

Asked by Ronald May 24, 2020 at 08:53 PM about the 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Turbo Wagon FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My big pain. I was suckered and purchased
this 2004 PT w 2.4 turbo. Since, replaced
computer, trany censure meant to protect
trany, brakes, tires, every engine fuel censure,
tube up, muffler and converter, front end
repairs, shocks. Just one rabbit hole to
another. So much money I feel really stupid.

I just fiberglassed entire underbody after
rusting thru and now I drove if after around a
month and I gave it some gas, not pushing it,
and this whitish smoke just blew out, covering
like 20 feet wide and high for a good 1/8 mile
and stopped. I give it gas again going up a hill
and same thing. No codes, nothing accept it
sputtered some snd settled town.

Do I have a bad cylinder head? Is it worth it
for me to buy a remanufactured head and self
install or call it a day and just sell it to
Someone interested in doing the repairs?

Got so much money tied up it’s either this is
my last problem to a lasting fun car or end of
the line.

Please help!!!
