Specific Model Forum: This is where we cover the majority of topics involving a particular car, truck or SUV, and focus on auto repair, consumer-technical issues and pretty much anything automotive. DO NOT post topics related to the buying, selling or trading of vehicles, parts, services, etc. That's what the Classifieds Forum is there for. Also, if your topic fits one of the other manufacturer specific subcategories, such has Performance Modifications, post the topic there, NOT in the specific model forum.
Example: Trying to fix an oil leak on your own car? Post the topic in the Specific Model Forum for that vehicle. Want to Sell the car because the repair is too expensive? Post an advertisement in the Classifieds Forum of your car's manufacturer. Curious about sport-tuning the suspension with a set of BILSTEIN Struts? Ask a few questions in the brand's Modifications Forum.

I have a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo V-6, 3.2, standard shift, with 239,000 miles. Losing antifreeze out of the exhaust. Losing approximately 1 cup per day local driving. Start up and white smoke comes out of exhaust. Five minutes after warm up the smoke is gone and engine runs smooth. How's antifreeze getting into the engine?
Please, in the future post your questions with a new topic in the appropriate category. This is an instructional sticky topic you have posted to. Thanks.
Most of the time, when an engine is burning coolant it's entering the combustion chamber past a bad head gasket, or a crack in the cylinder head.
Each cylinder needs to be pressure tested to see which cylinder(s) is involved. Then the head(s) must come off for a visual inspection and repair.
