yes sorry for the lack of infos...the guy did not tell me more, he was nervous and unwilling to investigate further. The insurance obliges him to do a diagnosis and he know I will not pay for high cost repairs. So i dont know if the battery was smoking, or the alternator or something else.

he obviously disconnected the battery when he noticed the smoke. I 'll take some wire with me tomorrow and will tell you more about the troubleshooting.

So the red wire of the harness that runs inside the car had burned. I removed alternator wirings and started the car. It still has the same sound it used to have since I bought the car, which is quite melodious. But 10 second later, In the area of cylinder six, water started to drip out of the head. Not just a little drop, it was flowing. Near cylinder 4, the HG protrudes from the head! I am going to remove the head, and will check for further damages.

Are you saying you already know how to avoid breaking the bolts when attempting to unscrew them or is that what you are asking advice for?

He might have meant avoiding breaking the injector bosses on the head. Yes that would be a good tip.

Other tips -- work slowly and methodically, take good notes, keep track of what came from where. Otherwise it is simple. The hardest part is resetting the cam and injection timing, and as I recall you have already been through that process before.

We will cross our fingers that everything you see turns out OK. If you saw gross external leakage of water then that probably is not a good sign for the head. You will want to have it checked carefully for warpage. Let us know if you need any help along the way. Good luck!
