Question about Cars & Trucks
Pink fluid? Would that be transmission fluid? You have cooling lines running from the transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator. Could that be the escaping fluid? Could the fluid have got on the exhaust and burned, and caused all the smoke? Or did the white smoke come out of the exhaust?
Check your fluids. Do you have pink coolant? Find and fix the leak, refill the lost fluid, and go from there. Good luck, drew.

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

this sounds like antifreeze entering the crankcase..blown head gasket .warped head . cracked the block . pray it's only a blown head gasket and get it checked for cracks and straightness with a new head gasket might be all that's needed. the high pitched whining noise was probly your waterpump spinning dry . might need a new water pump to (where is your coolant lvl and what is the strength of it for the cold weather)
and a few exaust doughnuts wearing thin letting smoke out in the engine compartment not healthy to breath you should get it looked at.

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.
