1998 Ford Contour 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

i have a 1998 manual ford svt contour. Ever since I got it its been throwing out white smoke from the mufflers and it drains up my gas real bad. I put about half a tank of gas and in result it gives me about 50 miles to about 5 gallons! Ive taken it to the mechanic and they fixed a couple of fuel injectors that werent working, but the problem of white smoke out the mufflers is jus aching and the mechanics just cant seem to find the main problem! Any help or suggestions to this would GREATLY be appreciated! Thanks.

Hello,

White Smoke from the exhaust is usually a good indication of a Blown Head Gasket have you check the coolant level? Are you having to fill your coolant frequently then you have a Blown Head Gasket.

Also check your oil is it over full by a quart or more or does it look milky? If so again you have a blown head gasket.
