Coolant coming from the exhaust pipe is a common indication that you have a blown head gasket. This is a fairly common problem on 4runners equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine. I do not recommend driving the vehicle in this condition even if it is not yet overheating because it can lead to serious engine damage.
you really need to have your cylinder head opened and checked. Your mechanic is right. The cylinder head might have warped due to overheating or might have a hairline crack were water can seep through. You will be lucky if the head gasket is the only problem.
Is this the diesel model ? or petrol power? Never lug your diesel engine it will overheat even a new engine. Check your coolant level when engine is cooled down it may need burped. Why the head gasket change? did the head get checked for cracks and surface flatness, could be still leaking combustion pressure gases into the coolant have a test for this
