I own a 1996 Honda Accord LX white smoke poured out of the hood on the passenger side. I immediately turned around and went home-less than a 1000 feet. It will now not turn over. Thoughts?

Sure, open the hood to see if coolant is sprayed over the engine and exhaust. Look for a leak, I suspect coolant sprayed over the engine getting the ignition components wet or your overheated your engine.

I think any evidence must have dried-this wad a few days ago. Would the engine start if it haf been just due to being wet?

Thanks for your help Tom! Coolant leak was the likely suspect--it turned out to be a dead starter.
