My son and I started up the ‘68 New Yorker yesterday and I saw something I really didn’t want to see. There was an oily liquid coming out of the tail pipe, and smoke that was predominantly white in color. Head gasket failure? The car has been sitting in our garage basically since we bought it in late August. We’ve started it to move it twice since then. Initially I thought the second owner may have had her running to rich since it left an exhaust deposit on the garage floor last time we started her. The temps were in the 70s when we started it up once to move it, and 50s when we stared her up yesterday. So, it isn’t really as though it was really cold when we got her started.
