How much is coming out? You will normally get some water out of the exhaust. The 3.4 is bad for the lower intake gasket needing replace. What is going on in the coolant jug? Is it bubbling and steaming a lot? that would be a sign of head gasket. if not then I would look at lower intake gasket. Do you see alot of coolant running down each side of the block?
