Sound like you may have blown the head gasket, and possibly the engine. I am by no means an expert. But in my younger days, I had a mercury lynx that started puring white smoke out the exhaust, then she overheated and seized up right there.

Yes, your right right it would either be a blown head gasket or a cracked head. I hope you did not run it hot to long. The reason the white smoke comes from your tail pipe is that water is getting into your oil. Take it to a shop, one you trust and tell them to check and see if it would be a cracked head or just a blown head gasket.
