    Start with valve seals. Cheap, costs mostly time. You can check the valve guides for excessive wear while you're in there. How do your plugs look?

    If it's white it means coolant. Where exactly did the smoke come from? The exhaust or the engine bay?

    White or grey, Auto tran's? If an auto check it's oil. Vacuum Modulator's go bad[the diaphram break's] and the engine vacuum will pull tran's fluid, and burn it.

    it was dumping out the muffler (there's a hole in one of em) and when i threw open the hood it looked like it was coming from the headers but i think that was just the smoke under the truck routing up through the hood
