My 96 Toyota Tacoma got hot, then I heard a pressure relieving/hissing sound ,then it acted like the thermostat opened up and temp. went back to normal. Then as I ascended a slight grade the engine lost power and died. after I came to a stop the engine was smoking all around the intake manifold and smelled like burnt oil. Is this a badly blown head gasket or a detonated motor?
