What can happens if you keep driving when smoke is coming from your ehxaust on a 2000 Dodge Intrepid 3.2L v6?

First off, the color of the smoke will tell you quite a bit and also if it is safe to continue driving the car. Black smoke indicates an overly rich fuel mixture. Blue smoke indicates it is burning oil. White smoke indicates there is coolant entering the combustion chamber. White smoke, stop driving the car immediately as severe engine damage will occur. You probably have a blown head gasket. Black smoke, drive as little as possible until you can find out what is wrong. The overly rich fuel mixture can do damage to the catalytic converter, O2 sensor, and possibly cause the engine to run hot. So keep an eye on the temperature gage. Blue smoke, may foul the plugs, so drive it until you get a diagnosis from a professional as to what the problem is.
