I would also check for a clogged cat convertor. They will make the motor run very hot . Check for little or hardly any exhaust coming out of the exhaust pipe. Another problem with these trucks is the thermostat sticking. I had that happen 2 times. Take yours out and check with a pan of water on the stove and a thermometer just to make sure it is operating in the proper range.

White smoke usually indicates either anti freeze entering the combustion chamber via head gsket or cracke cylider jacket or in older car a broken transmission modulator, the reason for this was that the transmission modulator used vaccum to operate the modulator and when the rubber diaphram inside the modulator ruptered the transmission fluid woud leak past the diaphran and get drawn throught the vacuum line uo into the motor, however on newer cars there is no such modulator it is all electronically controlled. Keep in mind even a small amount of antifreeze entering the combustion chamber may produce a good deal of white smoke, keep an eye on the coolant level over the course of weeks not days to determine if it is or is not using up antifreeze.
