Was the smoke black blue or white? And how long was it sitting there. The water is just condensation.

alot of white smoke, and it had been sitin there for like 4 hours, not a long time if thats what yall are thinkn, but anywho, the guy i talked to on the phone seems to think its a head gasket, and another guy online said that to, so if it is any problem im probably just gona sell the eclipse its given me enough problems since ive gotten it, and ill go ahead and get somthing more reliable

take off the oil cap and pull the dip stick, depending on were it blew your oil will have a milky discoloration to it. if it's your head gasket
