Coolant Loss, Engine Overheating, White Smoke From Exhaust on Ford Taurus

White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.
