Have you checked your oil for coolant? Does your exhaust smell weird? Kinda like diesel with coolant in it?

yeh, there there's not any coolant in the oil but the exhaust does smell alittle weird.when you first start it up it wants to skip but if you stand on it it will clear up some but the smoke has a kinda brown color the first time.I'm thinking a blown head gasket or injector cups but i'm not sure the cups will let water into the cylinder.

560,000 good lord, that s.o.b had a good run. Check all ur coolant hoses and the ground underneath. Or it might be a gasket..
