It's 2003 ranger edge 4.0, manual transmision with 130,000 miles.

sounds blown to me , the white smoke is coolant in the combustion chamber and exiting through the exhaust . you may have dropped to much oil causing a connecting rod bearing to seize and stop . there by causing the connecting rod to snap ,putting a hole in the water jacket
2003 Ranger totally stock for now ,mods coming soon .
SOLD 1996 Mazda B3000
