FORD F-150 GAS PROBLEM

1989 Ford F-150 • 290,000 miles

I have a 1989 ford f150 300 straight 6, I got gas one day and drove home everything was fine I parked it and the next day it would turn over but wouldent start.I could turn the key and actavate the fuel pump 4 to 5 times and it would start and run for about 5 seconds.I changed the fuel filter and checked the plugs 3 out of the 6 were coverd with oil and smelled of gas I cleaned them and it started and had more power than before but would blow out white smoke. I let it idle and it went dead now it will crank but wont start again. What could the problem be?

White smoke is coolant burning from a blown head gasket from overheating
