    Theres only one way you would be geting anti freeze threw the tail pipe. Your sure its antifreeze? cause if so looks like your gonna be having some major problemos. Be prepared for a tear down.

    for one, crossed vacuum lines really dont matter, as long as whatever needs a vaccum source is hooked up to the manifold then its fine. but it sounds like you may have crossed a vaccum line with a coolant line. that would be why you are smoking and getting coolant out of the exhaust. fix that asap. coolant in the engine is just as dangerous to the motor as water.

    no.

    look on the bottom of the throttle body. theres a coolant "warmer" the the TB there for when the car is cold to warm up the air going in faster
