    Exclamation my friends 88 taurus has some steaming problem :|

    my friend has an 88 v6 taurus and after long drives, direct quote now:
    Odorless steam coming out of what appears to be right of the engine block and makes a strange scraping noise occasionally when driving

    is the engineblock cracked ?

    Based on what you posted, I can't see the correlation between the scraping noise and the cracked block. Although if it WAS cracked and was leaking, I doubt it would be odorless-you'd be smelling coolant or oil. Does the temp guage go above normal?? Is there any smoke coming from the exhaust?

    Those motors tended to go through head gaskets pretty well. Is the oil kind of a milky white?
