The water can only go one of 2 places, the crankcase or the exhaust. A blown head gasket could definitely be the problem. If oyu can get hold of a compression gauge you need to check the compression on each cylinder. If the head gasket is blown around the area of a cylinder you will see a low reading on that cylinder when you check compression.. Also chek the radiator for the presence of air bubbles. this indicates the head gasket is blown next to a water port.
The main thing to look for on the compression test is one cylinder that is markedly lower than the rest.
Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh Ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks

I think he means that a warped or cracked head can overpressurise the cooling system and blow out the seal (maybe). If the radiator cap is doing it's job, I'd expect to see coolant released there at a lower pressure than the water pump seal. If the radiator is bubbling air, I'd expect a head or head gasket problem as well...hope this helps.

Blue smoke is usually oil burnig related. White smoke is due to coolant mixing with the oil. (Head gasket leak) You should have the coolant system pressurized by a garage to see if your system holds pressure. This test will tell a lot. Coolant in the oil is a big problem.

Hello qpsipsi: My name is Roger and i will help. The white smoke indicates coolant in the exhaust system. If you check the radiator it also should be low. If you lost compression in one or two cylinders .you should find them next to each other in the fire line. This would indicate a blown head gasket. If you lost compression in all cylinders. This would indicate a warped head and possibly a bad timing belt. I would remove the head and have it checked by a machine shop. I would also replace the timing belt with a kit as opposed to just the belt. Also replace the water pump. The kit includes new idlers. If the idler or the water pump go bad they will shred the belt and you will bend valves when this happens. Should you need further help lease just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
