It sounds like it got hot idling to jump start the mazda rx7 and either warp or most likely cracked a head or heads and or a cracked block take off heads and have them inspected and fixed or replaced.

My car is a ford fusion and it blow white smoke from the tail pipe of the car. can I fix it or do I need a new or used motor

check the level of coolant if really low possible chance ur head gasket is blown white smoke steam is your engine burning coolant aslo check oil if milky looking thats coolant mixing with the oil which is very bad for the bearings but if the steam is only short time that would be condensation which is normal but long intervals or hole time driving after warm up look towards head gasket replacing the gasket or head is cheaper than rebuilt or new replacement

My 87 rx7 got a new battery for it and when i put the new one in now there is no power to the ignition could this be a fuse or a starter problem?

It would be a fuse or wiring issue not starter if there is no power to the ignition switch.
Ignition switches were not high failure items. The 86/91 RX7 had electrical issues. Check fuses, grounds, battery cable ends(for corrosion in wire at connecter, swollen looking wire) look up all the TSB's for the car.

How do I flush water out and add antifreeze to my 2001 dodge intrepid

Technically speaking, the cooling system uses a 50-50 mix of coolant and water. You can buy coolant already mixed, or full strength.
There are hydrometers that you can buy to test the condition of the coolant. I would suggest draining the radiator and refilling with full strength, then test it. You would still have some water in the block and heater core to mix with the new coolant.

I am leaking coolant from somewhere. when I run my car, the engine smells like hot coolant. I have checked the oil, and the coolant isn't mixing with the oil. I have read about intake manifold...

First, I am assuming that your vehicle is equipped with the 3.1L V-6 and NOT the 3.8L V-6? (Engine size is really nice to know in situations like this!)

It could be any where in the cooling system. The intake gaskets also like to leak externally. A bad intake gasket does not always mix antifreeze with the oil. Take a flashlight and look for coolant on top and/or down each side of the transmission bell housing. This is VERY common on these engines. It may be leaking just enough to where the exhaust crossover pipe is burning it up (and stinking) before it has a chance to run on the ground. Also look for stains on the intake manifold-to block mating surfaces and on the side of the bell housing that will indicate a leak. if your vehicle is still using Dex-Cool, the stains will be pink. If your coolant has been changed to green antifreeze, the stains will usually be real white or dark green depending on the brand and the severity of the leak.

If there are no leaks or stains in this area, then look around the water pump area for the same things. The radiator or coolant hoses (including heater hoses) could also be leaking. If it is stinking when the engine is hot, then you could get it hot then shut if off and look for steam.

TIP: A bright LED flashlight works really good for locating steam.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze

If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

Where are the terminals to jump 2000 intrepid

The car has positive and negative jump start posts under the hood. The positive one is a large bolt surrounded by bright red plastic This is by the air cleaner. The negative one has black plastic. Use these locations to jumpstart the car instead of batter posts and jumpstart as with a typical car.

Drove through a water puddle and the engine started steaming and died. Now it wont start, it tries to turn over and start but it wont. What could it be?

Dodge Intrepids have a water pump that is driven by the timing chain. Kind of bad design because when it leaks a lot must be replaced.

If it is trying to turn over but won't, then something could have seized up.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Its blowing white smoke from exhaust

Sounds like you blew a headgasket. When this happens water can mix with oil and it makes the oil look white and foamy when you look into the oil fill cap. Another version is oil mixes into the water and gets into your radiator, this makes the same thick white mess and both versions would have to be thoroughly flushed depending on which got into the other. You could of also just blew the gasket between a water or oil jacket and a piston cylinder. This will cause the fluids to pump into your cylinder, heated and then be forced out the exhaust pipe. If water is mixed with this it will billow out white smoke(steam) in huge amounts. I would check your water levels and oil levels very quickly to make sure it does not empty those systems out and burn your motor up.
The last item is the worst outcome. If a crack somehow was created in the engine block or the head of the motor, the same thing could happen as it exited out the exhaust pipe. Though this is the worst case of really thick white smoke out exhaust.
Resolve: time for a mechanic to diagnose this one before it stops running completely.

Windowes steaming up

You either have alot of water somewhere in the car, rugs, seats or spare tire well. Is it snowing where you are? Or, your heater core is leaking. If it's the heater core you can smell it, if you never smelled coolant before open the radiator cap when the car is cold and take a whiff. If it's standing water, well, almost everyone knows what that smells like.
The heater core is more likely the problem. You must check the coolant level in the radiator. If the coolant levels in the radiator and resivour are low it has to be a leak in the heater core or hoses. On average heater core leaks can be small and take time to get really bad but you must monitor your radiator coolant levels or your car will over heat one day and you won't be prepaired. Also I don't know the health hazzards associated with breathing steamed antifreeze over time.

Over time you will notice that you need to clean off the areas that got steamed up and you will find the paper towel is really dirty looking (more than normal), that is another indication of a heater core leak somewhere.

Windows steaming up in the inside.

check for water in the heating duct, you have to get under nearth the dashboad, see if there are water, and where it comes from. the only way the windows steamup is by steam (hot water.), and check for the door operation, you may not have the AC or the cold air mix.
