Question about 2000 Toyota RAV4

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, or maybe both head gaskets....it has all the symptoms of such.....

The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.
Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.
Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

your diagnosis would seem to be correct. when a head gasket goes, coolant can leak into the combustion chamber where the coolant turns to steam and vents to the exhaust.
