I have 1999 Dodge Durango, it is blowing white smoke when I start it and seems like it is a little sluggish when at certain speed. Checked oil and it is 1/2 quart over, going to change oil

Generally speaking, white smoke is oil burning, and typically, seeing oil blowing out when the engine first starts can be an indication of valve stem seals leaking or an issue with something related. Having too much oil is not a good thing, but should not cause burning oil generally speaking.
