Default Help Diagnose Smoke (video)

So my jeep has a 5.0 out of a 93 and it had overheating issues during the summer. my fan clutch was shot and replacing that with a new fan seemed to help out a lot. now i got white smoke out of the exhaust that becomes thicker as the car warms up. thoughts?

White "smoke" is moisture vapor, so itd be coolant, it is probably a blown hg and as it heats up the leak area expands. Just to note if it looks bluish/greyish it will be oil.

Probably wrecked the head gasket when it overheated

If it smells gassy, you might check your fuel pressure regulator. When mine failed, I had white vapor from the exhaust and I thought I had blown a head gasket. The engine ran crappy though.
