My car is overheating and smoking.
The overheating could be from one or more problems on this particular engine and vehicle: the water pump, radiator, or thermostat may be bad or leaking. If the smoke is coming from the tailpipe, you likely have blown a head gasket, or cracked a head or block. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to you and check your car to test the vehicle for overheating and see where the smoke is coming from.
