Check your fuel pressure. Make sure it is within specification, sounds like you have a bad regulator.

Always replace the thermostat when changing water pump. The age of the vehicle warrants replacing upper and lower radiator hoses too.

Car running hot, white smoke coming out of tailpipes when stopped but none while driving.

Most likely a leaky head gasket , the white smoke indicates coolant is getting into combustion chamber/ cylinder(s)

could also indicate a cracked or warped head most often
caused by over heating

So I drive a 1999 chevy Cavalier and ive been having many problems with it. It blows black smoke sometimes from the exhust, on the hot and cold gauage the needle works its way to the hot end all the time,...

It sounds like you have alot of problems which may only be a couple.
Have the coolant thermistor checked, it sounds like this is not switching off and causing the engine to over fuel, making it run rough and blow black smoke out the exhaust.
Have the engine thermostat checked it maybe faulty causing the engine to over heat., have these done and see how you cars goes then.

Was running great then it just would not start and when it did it started idling fast now the exaust will glow red

if engine is running without missfire check catyletic converter for plugging also very rich running will cause exhaust to glow but will cause alot of black smoke from tail pipe I dont reccomend driving vehicle till exhaust or rich running is fixed can lead to engine failure

Truck starts, runs great, and sometimes won't start up again till the next day...Why?...battery is good...could it be fuel filter?

when you say it won't start again until the next day? does that mean after turning your truck off it won't start immediately? After a couple of hours of sitting have you tried it again. Are you sure your truck is running fine? is there a sulfur smell or extra warm coming form the floor? It could be your catalytic converter which is clogged, when the truck is cold.. you are getting enough exhaust escaping allowing the truck to run, but it will be very restrictive and I highly doubt that you are getting good acceleration, once this is hot is so restricted that it will not allow the truck to restart.
This can be a serious condition and if parked over dry grass or trash could actually start a fire. Take you vehicle to a respectable exhaust specialist.

I have a 2002 525i bmw, sometimes when i crank up the car a big pile of smoke comes out, and thens goes away. the car runs great sometimes and then sometimes when i make a turn i can hear the valves rattle...

It doesn't have to run hot to be blown. Sounds like you have oil getting into one of the pistons when you make that turn. After a couple of times, it ruins your plugs and that's why you're getting a mis-fire. It sounds to me like the engine itself is blown. The pistons along with the plugs are firing (burning the oil that gets into the cylinder walls. It's time to look into a rebuild.
