My coolant was linking from top of water pump housing unit and car start running hot. Now water goes straight out the reservoir when I fill it up. I have no ideal where it's leaking from. And car won't start. I started it once and had white smoke come from exhaust for about ten minutes and a little water. Think I have water in engine to cause the oil is milking. So why it does not crank? What can be the problem? If I try to start it it cranks for awhile trying to turn over for awhile then it'll start.
