Look carefully at the valve cover gasket. They will leak in the back and run down the backside of the engine.

I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT it always needs transmission fluid but I never have a pudle from it leaking. Also when i hit the gas white smoke comes from the tailpipe. What wrong with it?

The transmission fluid could be leaking into the engine coolant through the transmission cooler in the radiator. You should be able to see the transmission fluid in the engine coolant recovery tank. It will look like a oily film on top of the coolant. White smoke (steam) out of the exhaust indicates engine coolant is leaking into a cylinder.This can be a result of a blown cylinder head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. Have the engine coolant system pressure tested to detect the leak.
