Unknown problem

Asked by Feb 25, 2017 at 12:33 AM about the 2004 Ford Explorer XLT V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 04 ford explorer xlt v6. I was driving
the other day and it was riding fine then the
next thing I knew it wasn't taking gas and
the coolant gauge just shot straight up.
Before I could turn the truck off it shut off
and White smoke came from the tailpipe. I
refilled with coolant and it was starting but
not turning over. Can someone tell me
what's this sound like thanks!

Sounds like you may have a blown head gasket, cost of repair should be anywhere from 600 to 1000 dollars
