okay i have an 05 srt4 with around 45k on it... earlier today the car started up just fine and drove just fine, i went home to change my oil and fix my IC piping. i did that started it up and it sounded as if it was all cammed up and wanted to stall it shot white smoke out the exhaust. i dont know what happened but i never had this problem before. could it be that the piston tapped a valve??

my mods are

AEM SRI, mannyz upp w/ greddy rs, alky/water injection, dcr oil mod, 3" o2 housing, 3" maxfabb dp, 3" greddy evo2 exhaust, quickwhips bfmic,dcr ported intake mani/tb and spacer, DASmopar mapclamp, S2 injectors and slowboy wga 18.5psi..

please someone help :eeeek:

re.

Did you use the same weight oil you normally use? and unless you have a loose rod bolt or broken rod bearing your piston wouldnt contact your valve because your timing belt has that under control.. the problem is ; white smoke isnt oil burning... its coolant or water. have you ran the vehicle since this happened and is it still doing it? when did you install the dcr oil mod?

yea your buddy might be right... unfortunately.. but its odd that it would just "happen" especially on a start-up and not under heavy load. well what i recommend is to get..or go to a shop that has a co2 detector, its a device that mounts where your radiator cap goes and while the car is running it "sniffs" the amount of Co2 thats in the radiator fluid. the fluid in the device will change colors. cheap and easy way to be sure if its a head gasket or not... check the oil too, if its milky, then all bad. these head gasket are pretty strong tho.. im at 76k miles on 20 psi and no probs yet...knock on wood.

well thats good news for you :clap: ... but that IS a very weird thing that occurred if i were you i would spend some money on an oil pressure gauge so you can monitor if anything ever goes bad. its like predicting a heart attack right before it happens. I wouldnt trust the stock dummy light.. might as well mean "get a new engine dummy" since it takes 2 seconds on ZERO oil pressure to go off.. not much but sometimes enough to damage stuff

but why would that cause the car to sound like it had BC stage 3 cams?

so i figured out what it was, the water/alky kit was leaking fluid into the coldside pipe and it was causing it to do all of this..
