1994 Ford Explorer V6 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles
My son recently ran the 94 explorer without coolant until it stalled because of excessive heat. I filled the coolant system and started the vehicle, the smoke was so dense that it blinded me and filled the neighborhood. I also saw the smoke venting from the exhaust pipe under the vehicle. Drops of coolant also coming from the exhaust and from the exhaust pipes underneath.
Some mechanics said I need another engine, others said it's the head gasket and needs to be changed.
Which one is it, a cracked engine block or a blown head gasket? How can I troubleshoot this to decide which is which? Thank you.
