As long as you are not losing coolant water, this is normal.

Products of combustoin involve oxides of notrogen and hydrogen, if you are using LPG - you will get more water forming.

A well designed exhaust will drain this away - or help it's evaporation, but ultimately it will rust the exhaust from the inside.

This is why exhausts don't last that long.

Consider fitting a stainless steel version if this ever happens - and you intend to keep the vehicle for more than 5 years - otherwise , just replace if corroded.

Loosing a lot of coolant

it has to be either leaking somewhere, or it is going through the engine-check passenger floor for heater core leak, or a hose/clamp leak near or over the exhaust. Is the system holding pressure when hot? {squeeze the upper radiator hose when hot, you should feel it as a solid hose, that is not collapsed}. If you have pressure, it is some sort of external leak if you do not see smoke coming out the exhaust.

If water is still flowing even though the power is disconnected from the valve, the valve is faulty. Even new parts can be bad. If you have a lot of sediment in your water this can cause a lot of watervalve problems. I have seen people hook the water-line to the hot water supply using the waterheater as a settling tank.

I changed the turbo now white smoke coming out of my exhaust

This seems to be a symptom of a blown head gasket.
White exhaust smoke is an indication of water / coolant in the exhaust. The car running sluggish and using lots of fuel can be caused by compression loss.

Look at the coolant level color and smell (with cold engine - don't open the high pressure reservoir with engine hot as hot coolant may spray you in the face). If you have a blown gasket, the coolant color may become brownish and it may smell bad or the level will get lower even if you have just refilled the cooling system.

What you can also check for is bubbles in the reservoir. With engine cold, remove the reservoir cap. Start the engine. Try to rev the engine (or have someone do it) and observe if there are bubbles in the reservoir tank. If you see lots of bubbles, you have a blown gasket.

Toyota truck does it have to over heat to blow a head gasket

You don't need to overheat to blow a head gasket.

One other test you can do is remove the radiator cap and run the engine. There is likely to be lots of bubbles and perhaps even spouting of water out of the radiator if the head gasket has blown.

It certainly sounds like you have this issue.
By the way, you will use up all the coolant and damage the engine if you continue to run it with a blown gasket.

My hot water heater exhaust blower seems to run quite often, even though hot water consumption is not great. How often should the blower operate?

Your blower should run from before the heater lights until after it has shut off. Even if you're not using water, it will cool, and the heater will have to light to maintain temperature.

I have a 93 grand am. It overheated I changed the stat,there are no leaks,no antifreeze in the oil or coming out the exhaust,I hooked the fan up so it runs all the time,yet it still runs hot. any ideas.

It has a blown head gasket between cylinder and water jacket and the lack of water/antifreeze in the oil or coming out the exhaust is not away to test it. You will need to do a compression test on each cylinder. But even if water is not getting into the cylinder doesn't mean it's not going where it's not suppose to be.

Mouse got into the hot water heater thru the exhaust, now we are told that the fan bearings are bad - we have hot water, but when at the shower, it cannot produce enough hot water to keep up with the...

theoretically possible-----a mouse can get in, but most exhaust fan bearings are permanently sealed and are expected to run perfect for their designed life, without any need for lubrication---if a mouse got in, i can only assume that it was chewed up (or it's **** /urine) and was pulled into the motor/bearing shaft and caused some slow in revolutions due to animal parts grinding in the smooth bearings ---it could happen--it depends on how the bearings are sealed around the exhaust motor shaft....orrr, the mouse was killed by the spinning exhaust fan blade, and then "pasted" to the fan blades(ironically called a squirrel cage) and this caused extra weight and an unbalanced exhaust fan which would rapidly cause wear and burnout of bearings due to tremendous speed of exhaust fan---i have seen many a dead rodent inside "squirrel cages" (furnace and water heater exhaust fans and their housings) fact i chose to even scrape some of them out for refurbishment!

Dishes are still damp after cycle is complete. This causes a bad odor in the dishwasher.

Bad odor is caused by something besides wet dishes.

When the water finishes it's part and is exhausted, does a fan come on and run for a long time? If not, the drying fan is bad, usually mounted on the side and runs after all the water is removed. Also, after the water stops, are the dishes and inside HOT? You have to have HOT water to make a dishwasher function properly, will also take care of some of that odor. When a dishwasher cycles, it washes and then heats the inside of the washer, then it runs a fan to remove the water and dry the dishes.

Make sure your dishwasher is hooked to the HOT water line and also check to be sure it can heat it's own water, put it on pot's and pans and it should heat the water quite hot, even if it has hot water coming in, it will heat it up some more.
