Question about 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
The white smoke only started after adding the bars leak head gasket fix. and it only happens under heavy acceleration.
If you have a head gasket leaking, and your engine is blowing a white smoke from the exhaust pipe, then you're taking coolant/water into your piston/s.
After a heavy acceleration your pressure is forcing more coolant/water into your cylinders..but don't be fooled..water/coolant is also getting into your cylinder/s when you're driving slow too.
You should get the head gasket repaired as soon as you can, or the head gasket may very well let loose and then you get to deal with having the heads shaved if they warp from the heat.
Either way..you really should get the gasket replaced soon.

It is possible that the higher rpm is creating more pressure in the cooling system and forcing the antifreeze into the cylinder, if you know how, do a compression test on the engine and observe the plugs as you pull them for moisture..............however i am thinking that you may have to wait until the problem with the smoke gets worse in order to determine which cylinder is leaking
