Question Answered: 

haven't come by that one but your first best step rather then having the engine pulled out is to try a product called at-205.its about 10-15 dollars a bottle and ive sealed a few oil leaks and some big power steering leaks with it.its hard to find so call around

Question Answered: 

ok I cant say for sure what your problem is but it looks like some diagnostic procedures need to be performed.a fuel injector balance test needs done for sure along with a fuel pressure drop test.white smoke usually indicates a bad head gasket or cracked head but it could also indicate unburnt fuel in the exhaust.dont rule out the fuel pressure regulator as this could be the problem.a scan tool with live data showing fuel trims would really help you out on this issue.let us know how it goes,good luck.

Question Answered: 

the cooling system is going to need pressure tested to find the leak as well as a possible head gasket leak test performed by either the blue fluid test or leak down test.
