Is my head gasket blown?

Asked by Sep 08, 2015 at 03:36 PM about the 1994 Ford Escort 2 Dr LX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So everytime I put water in my radiator, and
crank my car, it all starts running out of my
exhaust. It just keeps comming until I'm
pretty much empty. It's not milky or sweet,
it's just plain water. My fuel cutoff light is on  
and my car won't start. Could this be my
head gasket?

Head gasket, cracked head or cracked block. It is never good when coolant leaves the cooling system via the exhaust pipe.
