Trucks blowing white smoke. It looks like theres gas or other liquid getting into the engine oil. What could this be and how do I fix it. I just bought this truck 8 weeks ago with 188,000 miles on it for $3500.

Sounds like it could be a headgasket. Likely burning coolant, along with coolant mixing with the oil.

I would agree that it’s likely your head gasket. I replaced one on a 5.2 once. It wasn’t terribly difficult, it just took time and patience following the steps in the manual. I wouldn’t drive it around too much until it’s fixed though. I’ve never tried it, but there is this stuff that Scotty Kilmer (on YouTube) swears by that is just a pour in solution. I do know that you have to be careful with it and determine when it can safely be used or it will absolutely destroy your motor.
