I have a 96 Falcon EF and when I start the car there is alot of white smoke with alot of discoloured water coming out.
I have also noticed the water level in the radiator reservoir is dropping even though I have replaced ALL cooling hoses.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It's either a blown head gasket or cracked head, you can do those repairs or try this if you what to try a cheaper fix.

On the link, you can buy and have it shipped to you, follow the directions for use. Instructions Please carefully read the entire sheet before starting repair. 1. Make sure engine is cold and carefully remove the radiator cap. If there is enough room, pour in the recommended amount of Seal. If the radiator or overflow tank is full, drain down enough antifreeze from the radiator to get the Seal in. For cooling systems with no radiator cap, remove the top radiator hose and pour the Seal directly into the radiator hose and then reconnect the top radiator hose. 2. Tighten the radiator cap back on. Turn the heater and fan to maximum and then start the engine. Hold the RPM ' s at 1,000 for 30 minutes. Shut the vehicle down and let it cool off completely. Top off the radiator with antifreeze and water, then replace the radiator cap on tightly. Leave the Steel Seal in your system and drive the vehicle as usual. 3. If you notice bubbling in your radiator, we recommend using a Stant Lev-R-Vent radiator cap to relieve the pressure during the procedure. These caps can be purchased at many auto parts stores.
