Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If the head gasket is blown, it will surely require replacement. Before doing so, please check the cylinder head for cracks or breakage for replacing the head gasket is useless if the engine block is damaged.

Hope you find this helpful and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My vehicle got overheated. I changed head gasket. After that when I started the engine I heard a knocking sound and white smoke comming.what part of the engine should I check and what is this problem?

If you don't have a clue ,why are you trying to play auto mechanic ! How do you know it needed head gaskets ? White smoke out the tail pipe , blowen head gaskets ! You didn't do it right ! Take it to a qualified repair shop .

Oil in water tank

Cracked head-blowen head gasket or cracked block. If it is not overheat most likely it is a blown head gasket.

Cant any one Help me my car over heats and After a few minutes i get water leak from the Deposit

sounds like you have a cracked head or a blowen head gasket, take the small black hose that is connected to the filler bottle (coming from the radiator cap) and put the end of the hose from the filler tank in a half full bottle of water make sure the end of the hose is under the water, start the engine and run for about 5 to 10 minutes, if there are bubbles coming from the hose this will tell you the head has a crack in it or you have a blowen head gasket. take it to your mechanic for repairs

Water coming out through the exhaust

You either have a blowen head gasket or the head is cracked. this will also cause water to get into the oil on most cases. Check the oil stick and if oil looks a light brown milky color then it is the head or gasket .

Was the smoke white? if so it is probably your head gasket you can still save it if you want as long as the head isnt cracked as well then it probably just isn't worth fixing and from the sounds of it sorry to say but I cant be sure with out seeing it
