04, D2 149k. Filled reservoir, forgot to put cap on (I know, rookie move. Please keep snide remarks to yourself). Blew out coolant, spiked temp. Filled within minutes with new. Ran for a week then today, hard start, spit out overflow and blowing white smoke. Complete HG failure? Toasted motor? Best guesses and next step ideas appreciated.

check for combustion gas in the coolant. If its there be prepared to get greasy

The fact that you initially had to top off the res kinda makes me think it's been brewing for a while and finally boom no.

If you are going to rebuild make sure to get top hat liners installed by a competent machine shop
