Aren't there levels to this? As in just because you have a hg issue doesn't necessarily mean you will 100% be blowing out white smoke from your exhaust.

I think what matters is the degree of damage to said head gasket.

I have had two (2) Subarus with head gasket woes. 2 different symptoms on each.

04 wrx: coolant overflow bottle would get full after every drive. Cooling system was being over pressurized and pushing coolant unto overflow bottle (plastic bottle near radiator)

04 leagcy (N/A): this one had an external coolant leak. I could run my finger near rear driver side of short block (where block and heads meet) and feel coolant leaking from there.

NO WHITE SMOKE OUT OF EXHAUST FROM EITHER CAR!
