White smoke is water / coolant getting burned. A common issue with GM trucks is a bad intake manifold gasket.

I use Felpro PermaDry Plus gaskets for this issue.

98 eagle talon is over heating when i drive it and there a white smoke coming out of the tail pipe , also the reservoir is boiling and steaming

sounds like overheating caused the head to warp blowing the headgasket ? there are always reasons this happens ? bad rad, waterpump,fans not working,thermostate, so be aware that after you repair headgasket to fix what caused it to blow or you will be doing it again ? god luck

1991 gmc sierra and white smoke

head gasket blown, or cracked head.

coolant is making its way to the piston and combusting with the gas.

1 or both routes are the only possible way.
