Hi guys....I'm having delema. I think I have a bad head gasket....Why you ask. I'm getting a good amount of steam from my exhaust. How much is normal. I also noticed moisture in the down pipe when I pulled off my test pipe to reinstall my cat. After I installed the cat I went out to check my oil and fluid levels and thought I would start her up and let her run a little. The ambient temperature is 55 degrees. When I started her up I got steam and a bunch of it. I don't drive this car much, maybe 300 miles this year so far. I rev the engine more steam. After about 15 minutes the steam subsided, but I still get a little steam at an idle at 58 degrees ambient and engine at running temperature. This car is factory stock with 62k miles. About 100 miles ago I gave her a compression check and I had 148 psi across all cylinders. I pulled the plugs yesterday and they were very clean with no antifreeze deposits. Oil is clean and I don't have oil in my coolant. I will give her another compression check this week when I get some time. Is that much steam normal or am I just paranoid. How do I check for a blown head gasket, besides a compression check and fluid inspection? The car seems to run good, slightly rough idle, but nothing a good tps, iac adjustment couldn't take care of. I didn't notice steam Saturday when she ran, just a puddle of water at each pipe while I let her idle for twenty minutes while I check the charge on my ac. During the summer I would get very little water in the exhaust. Some pointers please. I may just be paranoid and the moisture in the exhaust would clear if I drove it more.
