How could water get in to transmission of 1998 dodge ram 2500 quad?

What does fluid that appears to be engine coolant coming from the muffler indicate?

HeyHoward==If it is coolant the engine will overheat quickly and the engine will smoke white smoke. The head gaskets will need replaced. It can be normal condensation if it is pretty clear water. Good luck, Joe

Why is smoke coming off your engine?

The engine obviously has some sort of contaminant on it. Such as engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid or possibly transmission fluid. Engine coolant will not smoke but will produce steam if it comes into contact with the engine. Track down where the smoke seems to be coming from and look for fluid residue in that area. I guess it is possible that you could also have a crack or break in the exhaust manifold near the engine.
