Was driving down the highway going approx. 65 car overheated and starting smoking horribly, since then it over heats quickly and loses oil as soon as I put it in and drive. HELP. I just recently sold it as well, well am in the process, asked $400. They accepted.

You can rent a chemical block tester from auto zone to check for a blown head gasket etc. Is there any coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant?Also where is the oil leaking from?
