EXCESSIVE WHITE SMOKE CAME OUT OF EXHAUST

1991 Acura Integra • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 210,000 miles

1991 Acura Integra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 210,000 miles. Excessive white smoke came out of exhaust of my son's car; he thinks he smells anti freeze. What could the problem be?

It sounds like the engine has fairly recently overheated causing the head gasket to fail. This was possibly caused by a crack in the head or a warpage of the head. You can take off the head and have it checked and surfaced at the auto parts shop. Put on a new gasket and things should be back to normal, however, I would be looking for a reason as to why the vehicle got hot. I.E. Crack in the radiator, leak in hose, bad thermostat, etc.
