Leaking head gasket(s).


If it blows white smoke out the tail pipe then it has blown headgaskets or a cracked cylinder head, now the smoke coming out the vents is usually a busted heater core, and that could also have been caused by a headgasket problem, too much pressure in the cooling system causing the core to rupture or crack.


I agree that you have a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. A bad head gasket will not always cause oil to be in the coolant or coolant to be mixed with the oil. White sweet smelling smoke is never good.
