    do compression test and dependent if negative result a lead down test

    if test ok its just water in oil...... clean air box etc etc, change oil a few times

    plus not sure why you would suspect exhaust gasket?

    it sure is a pain in the ass to try to figure out what someone is saying when they dont bother to use punctuation or capitalization in their sentences it makes it even harder when they stick sentences together and put in extraneous things like their daughter and parking the car and i sure dont know what smoke has to do with it was the engine smoking or did you stop for a smoke break in any case i think youre on to something when you mention crackhead
