Problems with a 91 ford ranger on 1991 Ford Ranger

I have a 91 ford ranger. It ran good for a minute then started to smell like a vaccum was overheating. It also has water running out of of the tail pipe and just a little more smoke then normal. It also has a miss kinda like its not getting gas.

Pull your oil dipstick and make sure you don't have water in the oil, It will make the oil look off white, If the oil looks fine maybe you just need a tune up.

Depends on how much water coming out of your tail pipe. If it was just some drops, it's supposed to be normal, just condensation. But if a lot, possibly you blew a head gasket. Possibly so if you have 250,000 km on your motor or more. Check your oil. Good luck. P. S. If that's a picture of it, good looking little truck.
