2003 Can you spell scrap iron? How many miles on it? with the problems you are saying I would probly not stick any more money in it. I have a 2005 with 95000 on it was problem free untilll I had to put all 24 lifters in it and still ticks and runs the same. But other than that it has been a great vehicail. Dam I still have warranty left on it

Dude your head gaskets are blowen

white smoke is a bad head gasket, depending on how many times your truck has been over heated you will probably have to get head/s decked, stop diagnosing this vehical yourself you dont have the skills and take it to a real mechanic that is reputable, or just get a differnt car or engine dropped in,,, either way you have bad head gaskets

btw way what you mean by front ball bearings?? you talking about the wheel bearings/hub assembly ? if so you dont have to drive it to test those,,, just take the wheel and rotor off, and rotate/spin the hub by hand and if its bad you will feel a grind
