okay well im new to the forum but i need some information. today i was driving my 2006 charger and i was going with traffic about 80 mph and i went to accelerate around a car and my car wouldn't pick up speed. I got over to the side of the road to get ready to pull over and the car's oil light turned on, dinged and then the car stalled. I pulled over and popped the hood immediately and white smoke was coming from the dipstick hole and the air filter compartment. now when i try to start it, it just makes a terrible screech that sounds like its coming from the engine block and it wont start. the engine jumps when i try to start it also. any ideas on what it may be? i know for a fact its not the starter or the fan belt.

Welcome to the forumz from Canada. Lots of great info and friendly people here. White smoke (or any smoke for that matter) is a bad sign. From what I recall white smoke is from liquid (water/anti-freeze) evaporating. Why you are getting liquid in your oil system I have no idea, but it's usually a costly repair.

It sounds like it sizzed up if lost a head gasket you well could be dumping coolant into the cylinders. that does not sound good - Sorry. how many miles - will it turn over ????

Welcome from CO. Sorry to hear about your problem. I'm not a 100% sure what it could be but I'd stop trying to start it- could just lead to more problems. I'm with nanook, smoke of any color isn't good. I had a similar thing happen with my very first car... a 1980ish Pontiac boat. Needless to say, I doubt you want to hear what needed done to that car but I wound up buying a new one. Granted that car wasn't worth what it would have cost to fix it but it was enough. I really hope there isn't major issues and it can be resolved quickly. Good luck.

Welcome aboard from Virginia! Unfortunately, I agree with some of the others that have posted - sounds like a head gasket.
