Re: Volvo Problems

white smoke can be an indication of a blown head gasket or a rusted out exhaust elbow. the fact that you are not getting good water flow can also cause white smoke because you do not have enough cooling water flow to keep the exhaust elbow cool and the exhaust heat is turning the water into steam in the elbow. sounds most like you have a plugged cooling line or plugged up inside the engine.
