2005 Dodge Ram1500 White Mist/smoke from exhaust pipe.

One of the gaskets has blown at a point where the a water jacket is blowning into the cylinders but not mixing with an oil jacket on the heads. Try to use some Bars Leak and see if you can get it to seal and if not, their are also aluminum shavings mixed with sealer for some of the worse problems. If it seals you will then know that it will need a gasket replacement at some point

I have a1987 f-150 acts like its vapor locked changed fuel filter,plugs,wires,distributer cap,ran fine sat for 8 months now wont run right

Sounds like the distributor stator/pickup is defective, this sends an erratic signal to the Ignition control module (called the TFI module) coil and that causes the timing to go wacko. The Ignition control module and the stator are mounted on and inside the distributor change them both, the distributor must come out to replace the stator. here was a recall on may of these trucks, contact a Ford dealer. Another problem is that the ignition switch comes apart, this also was recalled on many models. Below is a diagram of the distributor for your reference.11_30_2011_5_37_47_pm.jpg

Scan indicates plug problem in number 1 cylinder.

I'm assuming you have a check engine light on and got a P0301 code. That is a misfire on cylinder one. It could be plugs or could be the ignition coil itself. If you have individual coil packs, swap the number one coil with the number 5 coil and clear the code. Drive for a while and see if the light comes back on. If it does and there is a code P0305, you know the coil is bad. If it is time to change the plugs do that as well. Use motorcraft plugs. Not autolites or anything. Only Motorcraft belong in newer fords. I'm not sure what engine or vehicle you have but some of the V6's had coil pack issues and a lot of the truck V8's have issues with the individual coil packs. One will go bad and you will replace it, then another will go bad, and so on like dominos until you have replaced all 8. Good luck.

My chevy s10's radiator blew I replaced it... Drove about 8 miles home. Truck sat overnight. Drove about 10 miles the next day and it wouldn't start back up. The dealership says it's either a blow head...

the head could be cracked also. check the oil if its milky then its the head gasket or head probably. if no then when its running is there alot white smoke that also could be a cracked head or head gasket.the first is antifreeze leeking into the oil system usually cracked head. the second is antifreeze leeeking into the cylinder
so no external leek

1997 cadillac deville- misfires on cylinder #1 when cold and starting up, and also when hot and left off for a few minutes, and then restarted. Runs rough for 15 seconds or so, and then the problem goes...

It sure is. If a plug is truly wet, the energy for the spark will travel through the moisture, rather than across the gap. The fuel air mixture flowing into and out of the cylinder serves to ventilate the cylinder, drying the plug.

Plus, that air is preheated, so that would accelerate the drying once warming up got underway.

You really need to have that head gasket replaced. If this questionable repair gives way (and it almost certainly will), you can get enough water in the cylinder to start breaking things on startup without any warning.

I have a 2006 F150 with a 5.4. I have a engine

First remove spark plug. #8 plug is, if sitting in truck, left rear plug. Have someone crank engine while you hold spark plug, connected to plug wire, ground plug to ground. Check spark. If no spark, remove plug wire from coil, connect test light from coil to ground, see if you get spark, if no spark replace coil. Leave cylinder #8 open to air to dry any unburnt fuel in cylinder.
