White smoke out the tailpipe and coolant loss usually indicates a blown head gasket, cracked cylinder head or engine block. Head gasket is by far the most common cause. Some times there will not be water in the oil when a head gasket is bad.

we found out it is a blown head gasket, water in the oil, we don't drive it anymore just sits there now, can't afford to have it fixed, Thank You Bob for the info you are right ughhh this sucks, looks like $1500 to get it fixed and we only paid $1200 for the car, so to me not worth fixing even tho it is great on gas mileage and runs beautifully when in good working condition
