I would almost bet you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. White smoke at the exhaust, loosing coolant, moisture on the underside of the oil fill cap, and on the dip stick are all signs of a blown gasket. The fact that there is no coolant in the oil does not mean it does not have a blown gasket. To find out for sure remove all spark plugs, disconnect the coil wire, and then run a compression test on all cylinders. If you find one or more with low compression you have a blown gasket. Do not drive this car any longer until you get this repaired. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive it.

If white smoke is coming out of your tail pipe is is burning antifreeze. However have it checked closely. While it could be a head gasket, the 3400 is noted for the intake gasket leaking. Have a pressure test done before you pay for something that you don't need.
Also there is a way to permanently repair the head gasket if it is a real leak as long as it still runs. Check out Barr's Leak head gasket repair and follow the directions to the letter. do not skip any thing. It works I have repair a dozen cars with this.
Hope this helps
