possible causes and solutions to your problem:

1. leaks in the radiator / water hoses. have a radiator expert check your cooling system. water hoses are quite easy to replace. some would recommend replacing your radiator, some will suggest have it overhauled. if the price is almost the same, the go with the new radiator.
2. busted head gasket. this problem is not that serious, but needs immediate attention. due to blown head gasket, some oil and water that is circulating around your cylinder head will mix, thus the dark color of your water
3. cracks in the cylinder head. now this is a serious problem. have your cylinder head checked immediately. solution here varies from resurfacing to re-bore and re-sleeving of combustion chamber.

There is white smoke coming from the exhaust shooting out a watery substance. the white smoke gets worse as i drive it. there is no water in the oil or milky sludge build up and dont need to add water.

This acts and sounds suspiciously like a blown head gasket. You can't fix it if it is. I suggest you check your oil for water (pull the dip stick, is the oil milky white?). Get your car to your mechanic as soon as you reasonably can before you cause much more damage if this is a blown head gasket.

Jags are HARD to work on, and even HARDER to buy parts for ... so ... have you ever heard of K-Seal? If it WORKS, it could save you $1,000's! If it doesn't work, you're out less than $20!

Water getting into oil

If its just condensation in the oil cap or dipstick, to some degree its normal. However if you have water in the oil and its very creamy in texture, its probably a head gasket leak, or cracked head. Its important to get it repaired soon, or total engine bearing failure will result.

Suddenly started smoking white smoke and seems to be losing power

White smoke is coolant being burnt. That with your lose of power would suggest a bad head gasket. A compression test could confirm it. Hope this helps.

In some cases I have seen blown intake manifold gaskets cause a milkshake in the crankcase inspect the lower intake gaskets coolant passages at the end of the cylinder heads for damage. I would suggest a compression test and a cylinder leak down test befor further tear down.

I have a 1998 chryler concorde and oil is mixing in the container whereyou poor the antifreeze and water

blown head gasket, cracked head or cylinder wall. Oil is entering into coolant system. You should also check the dip stick in the engine oil. If milky or coco foamy. Would suggest not driving until problem identified. If cylinder fills with coolant with both valves closed & you crank it with the starter it could hydraulic the cylinder & bend the rod & do other damage as well.
Good luck!
