My truck is not happy!!!

Yesterday I got in my truck, fired it up and happened to notice white smoke out the tailpipe. I popped the hood and the coolant bucket was empty. I checked the oil and it had a fair amount of metal sparklies in it. Oil was not milky. I filled the coolant bucket it took a gallon and half. So were is the coolant going? With the research that I have done it is either injector cups or head gaskets. What about the oil? That has me really scared.

Is it smoke in the exhaust or steam? If it's steam, that would explain the coolant loss.

See if you can get some of that metallic-looking oil into a small glass or plastic jar or vial. Then put a magnet up next to it. That will at least tell you whether it's iron or aluminum (or some other non-ferrous metal) suspended in it.

So last night at about 6pm I pressured up the cooling system with a manual tester. Set the psi at 15 left for the night. Just barely checked it and it has only dropped 2.5 psi. I would think that if I had a bad injector cup is should drop faster than that. Any ideas
