    v6 engine. Coolant coming out of the exhaust but relatively good compression

    2001 9-5SE v6. I am getting white smoke from my exhaust. I have run it for a long time with a piece of paper below the exhaust pipes and am quite sure it is coolant. My compression check gives me: 1-170lb, 2-165lb, 3-170lb, 4-150lb, 5-160lb, 6-150lb.
    I recently replaced my turbo, pretty sure this is not the problem however. My coolant loss problems have been on going from just a little to what seems to be at the head gasket replacement level.
    Also, if you can direct me to step by step instructions with graphics for the v 6cyl, please do so.
    thanks MGuy

    This turned out to be vaporized oil leaking through the turbo seal.
