what color is the fluid?

headgasket? valve covergasket...maybe main seal...i dunno need to be more clear.theres really not much on the exhaust side that would leak..could be anything from brake master cylender, clutch, or maybe you just left a coke bottle under the hood and melted the bottle :x

well the smoke is white ... am guessing the engine is done for.. cos right now it has a hard time starting ..so he will probably have to get a new engine.. well that wat he gets for driving it ...lol told him to fix the radiator and stop putting water but... his a hard headed.. so thats wat happens... well thanks guys for ur help...

white smoke isnt that bad..just the head gasket..barly say that means the engine is done.fairly simple and straight forward fix..if he dont want it ill buy it lol 500 for a car with blow engine...
