I have a 94 deville concourse and I was driving on the highway today and out of nowhere white smoke started barreling out of the tail pipe and I lost all power< and then it died and now won't start. I think this might be a head gasket, but Im not sure. does anyone have any suggestions as to what this might be?

Northstars do that all the time. When the head gasket blew, you probably lost compression to the cylinders or the engine could have hydro-locked and be completely unrepairable.

For you information, your on the wrong forum. This forum deals with Rear Wheel Drive Cadillac vehicles, and yours is (or was) Front Wheel Drive.
