Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
Are you sure it was not water (condensate)?
If you have actual coolant coming out the exhaust you have a MAJOR engine problem.
Most likely blown head gasket - but if the thermostat was faulty - and the engine overheated - you may have a cracked cylinder or engine block.
