I was a little dissappointed when I saw white smoke coming out of the drivers side tail pipe ! Thought all kinds of bad stuff. Then , while putting on some exhaust tips I found lots of moisture in the drivers side tailpipe !
What could it be? Head gasket, intake gasket, cracked block etc., etc. So, I did a compression test after the motor had sat for 3 days.
Plugs were dry !

I found nothing to show a coolant leak.
So, then it hit me. The motor I broke pumped a lot of coolant into #3 hole. Guess where it went ? Out the exhaust. Must be a lot of coolant in the muffler and pipes. Wonder how long this will take to burn off.
Anyway, I'm glad I didn't start tearing it apart yet.
