White smoke coming from engine and exaust.

I'd have to see it in person. A small amount of coolant in the cylinders can make a big cloud of white smoke. So a head gasket or intake gasket could be leaking but yet be tough to find. If you start loosing coolant you'll know. Meanwhile I would probably not drive it very far from home for a few days/weeks.
Keep in mind, if it is very cold where you are, regular water in the exhaust is going to cause "fog" out the exhaust.

Water meter keeps running. When I turn off the water supply to the hot water tank the needle on the water meter stops, does that mean that I have a leak in the hot water pipe coming out of tge tank.

Yes you have a leak on hot pipe or TP overflow tube.
Put ear against pipe to listen for sound of running water.
If TP valve goes into drain line, check if water is running down TP overflow tube.
Check each faucet for leaks.
If pipes are under slab, put ear against each faucet to determine which faucet is closest to broken pipe.

My boyfriend has a 91 Toyota 4runner v6 SR5. He has replaced the radiator and thermostat. Also he has bled the coolant system several times. The truck is still losing coolant. If he drives the truck...

When engine completely cools remove coolant from overflow reservoir to the cold mark on the reservoir which is the lowest mark on reservoir. If you continue to loose coolant you may have busted block.

Coolant leaking from R1 bottom of engine

FYI This has just happened to me.
Bike has been stood for a few weeks and i started it. Noticed the temp was unusually high (105-110) so switched off, checked coolant and it was dry.
I topped up and noticed the coolant leaking from what appears to be a hole in the engine sump casing.
Im a fairly fast worker and i managed to remove the entire exhaust system down to the header pipes and drop the oil and remove the sump casing in around an hour.
It might take longer if you don't do much mechanical stuff. (I'm just a hobbyist btw not a mechanic).
It turns out that the hole in the sump casing is actually linked to a coolant overflow pipe internally. So don't worry coolant is NOT mixing with your oil (and therefore oil is NOT mixing with your coolant!)
So obviously there is something more to this than meets the eye.It turns out that on all Pre2006 R1's the Water Pump is internal and if it leaks, You guessed it, It used this overflow pipe to stop the coolant mixing with your oil.
This is where my mechanical knowledge ends and i will be taking my bike to a real mechanic to swap out the water pump for me.
The good thing is, if you already remove your exhaust system and drop all your oil etc this will save around 1-2hours of labour at the garage!When they've fixed, get them to replace the oil and filter and leave them your exhaust if you like to fit and they can run it up and test it before returning to you working:)

After water is sufficiently heated up, water flow out of the overflow pipe for about 2-3 minutes. Is it normal?

Water should not leak out of water heater.
Water should only come out of the TP valve and down the overflow pipe if water is too hot, or if TP valve is bad, or if you have stacking condition.

Worcester 350 boiler pressure low - warning light comes on so i top it up with water half an hour later the pressure drops again. Have checked rads and pipes no obvious leaks. Water seems to be coming out...

That overflow is the Pressure Relief Valve.usually they are set at 3-3.5 bar but over time they can be gunged up inside and leak/allow water to flow out. Dismantle & clean or replace. Turn off mains water and ch pipes before removing - operate valve remove & allow for some water to leak from it

What causes big oil leaks on the ground from a 2003 triumph speedmaster. I go for a ride and then park the bike, later there is a pool of oil on the ground. It seems to be coming from one of the overflow...

yh thats the breather pipe they mostly leak because there is too much oil in the crank case or compression is passing the rings are causing pressure on the oil so it gets forced out the breather

I'm getting a "creamy" oil coming out of the overflow

when oil becomes creamy or foamy it is a sighn that you are getting moisture in it. you must have water leaking into your oil. you should fix the problem soon because your oil will not work properly with an excess if moisture in it.
