Check for oily mixture in your antifreeze. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. You could do a compression test to verify, but it sounds very much like you have have a failing head gasket, or possible a cracked head. There are some liquid head gasket repairs available at auto parts stores that may help, or at least keep it from getting worse for a while. The white vapor from the exhaust is antifreeze burning off. It may have a slightly sweet smell. If untreated, the vehicle will eventually overheat and the engine will fail completely.

What is your definition of a tune-up, besides
spark plugs?

Did the 2500 rpm idle start,after someone worked on it?

I hope a repair shop didn't give it back to you like that

2001 Dakota compression loss, smells like gas, white smoke from exhaust


Sorry but this has happened to me before, you might have a blown head gasket. that is where oil and or water are getting in to the piston cylinder and causing the white smoke cause the oil and water is being burnt or boiled.take it to a shop unless you have all the right tools and knowledge to do this job. i cost me like $1500 labor and parts.
