WHAT REPAIR SHOULD I GO WITH

1994 Acura Vigor

Engine Cooling problem
1994 Acura Vigor 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 177, 00 miles

I have a 94 vigor. The car is in good shape. It ran hot due to the water pump going out. I had the pump replaced. Now the mechanic is telling me that the engine has warped heads. So now it has no heat and it still will run hot if I put the radiator cap on tight. If I take the radiator cap off it wont run hot at all. But I see a little smoke coming from the rear driver side of the engine. I want to know do I replace the heads or go with a new engine. I want to keep the car but replacing the heads seems to be a 1000+ repair job.
