Alright, so my 99 318 half ton is burning coolant pretty bad. I figured a blown head gasket. So before I tore into it I put a block tester on it. After pumping the tester with the truck at idle for way longer than recommended the fluid stayed blue. So can a blown gasket still be the problem?
What do you guys think?

How would I test for a bad intake gasket?
That wud make sense tho. The coolant leaking down the valves? I wudnt have any exhaust gases in my coolant. When I start the truck after it sits for awhile I get a clowd of white smoke. So wud the coolant in the manifold be draining into the cylinders while it sits?
