Huge Problem

ok so latley my truck sometimes when it starts it smokes (white/gray) and it doesnt go away until i drive a few miles and man does it pour smoke and coolant sometimes comes out of the exhaust but nothing is in the oil. the other day my truck engine temp went up to the red zone of the H and started to sound like a semi added about 1 to 2 gallons of coolant its not leaking anywhere so something has to be wrong coolants got to go somewhere.

Signs and symtons
- white/gray smoke sometimes at start ups doesnt go away until a few miles
- coolant low
- coolant leaking out of the exhaust about 6" puddle on some start ups

Results
- sounds like to me head gaskets and studs are needed along with the EGR delete

what do you guys think?
