You can pressurize the cooling system with a pump, and then, while still under pressure, remove the spark plugs and look for coolant on them--or as burdawg suggested, run a pipe cleaner into the hole and see if coolant appears. Then you KNOW for sure.
White smoke (like steam) is definitely a head gasket problem. There doesn't have to be water in your oil. There can also be oil in the radiator, or nothing at all (since the leak isn't bad enough yet and it's all burned up).
If the smoke is BLUE, this is probably oil burning, either from valve stem seals, valve guides, or internal engine wear (rings).
If the smoke is BLACK, this is an over-rich mixture, and has many causes but all related to fuel delivery and ignition, and more easily correctable than the other two situations.

#291 of 333 No pressure in Clutgh pedal
Nov 26, 2009 (12:33 pm)
I have a 95 3000 and a few days ago i lost almost all pressure in the clutch pedal. I checked the master cylinder to check the fluid level and it was a little low so I refilled it. After that it was fine. but the next day I came back and I lost pressure again. I checked the fluid level again but it was full. Anyone got any ideas what might be the problem?

If you lost some fluid, you have a leak, and probably are sucking in air. You might check for wetness at the clutch slave cylinder down below, or wetness in your carpeting under the dash where the clutch pedal linkage goes through the firewall.

Yes check the slave. They fail more often than the master. Even if there is no wetness the seal inside can let fluid pass. Replacing it is not too expensive.
