1998 Other Oldsmobile Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

I have a '98 Oldsmobile intrigue & the temperature gauge shot up to high, the check engine light came on, & started to run rough. I brought it in for an estimate & they said it was the water pump – I replaced it – it started right up, I drove it for a mile or so – got home & white smoke came out the back & started running really rough. I turned it off & now it won’ t start, it does turn over & the power is there, just won’ t start.

I’ m thinking that the upper intake manifold probably has antifreeze in the cylinders, but can’ t determine if the head gasket would have gone bad also? What do you think – drove on the needle on high for about 20 minutes…
