Doc here

Let's get some info here.

First You indicate the engine is new Correct? Heads too?
  • How much run time has it got?
  • Did it at anytime overheat?
  • How's your oil looking, milky white or clean?
  • How does it run? hard starting? Miss at idle, road speeds?
  • Crank like it's over-advanced on cold starts?
  • Using water or boiling over?
All of these point to but are not limited to a bad head gasket, or misaligned, or damaged intake manifold gasket.

Does it blow white puffy smoke out the back all the time?

Fill in the blanks and we 'll see if we can narrow it down for you...
