Unhappy White Smoke Problem

hey guys I have a little problem that just started happening yesterday I noticed as I was driving yesterday that I had a mixture of white and black smoke coming out of my stacks and sometimes it was just solid white. So I threw in some injector cleaner. Today I started the truck up ran it very easily for a while then got on it to see if it would do it again and all black smoke luckily and a little more than usual. Then I shut the truck off to go into a store came back turned it on started driving and ALL white smoke I looked in the reflection of a store window and brake torqued it for a second and all that came out was white smoke! It seems to be going back and forth from solid black to solid white to a mixture. I have no idea what is going on. PLEASE HELP!

-Matt

I would first start with looking at the oil, see if it's got bubbles in it, then look at coolant and see if there's oil mixed in with it. Then if there is, you know you got a problem.
