Question about 1998 Dodge Neon
The 1995-1999 Neons are notorious for having faulty head gaskets. This sounds like what you're experiencing. There is coolant leaking internally somewhere, and burning in the engine.
By any chance, is the smoke coming from the back or side of the driver's side of the engine? This seems to be the trouble spot.
If you've been driving with a bad head gasket seal for a while, there's a chance you could have warped or even cracked the head. I would recommend taking it in because this is a pretty major repair... unless you feel like taking the engine apart yourself.
