There is a blown head gasket allowing coolant into the cylinders thus burning out the exhaust. Head or heads need to come off and checked for cracks, warp-page, gaskets replaced.

So even though it's not doing it now with the smoke it's most likly that ? If not able to get fixed would it be ok to drive on or no if so how much if any drivin


Well you have the overheating possibility. Probably not going to be able to travel far with the vehicle.

Thanks for the answers an help now got to figure out how to get parts an get fixed for cheap I hope


Headgasket replacement and possible machining of heads is not cheap, just be prepared that you might be looking at spending more than you bought the car. It's all in the labor costs.

Thanks tom
