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.

Car began to over heat while on the highway. Water pump had failed. $1300 to repair and one week later the engine failed. Ford dealer put new engine in for $6,000 and it wouldn't start. The fuel pump driver module failed. Hopefully I pick up the car tonight.
