Coolant system problems-Cracked coolant reservoir replaced-Weeks later leaks in radiator-replaced-Now white smoke??

Help!!! My coolant system in my SUV has been malfunctioning and is costing a small fortune to fix!! A few months ago I had a cracked coolant reservoir that was replaced by the dealership. Weeks later, I took the truck back because the low coolant warning light was coming on and was told that I had leaks in the radiator and lower galley plate. I had both replaced and had the truck serviced. A week later I started the truck and white smoke was coming from the exhaust. Dealership told me that there was coolant in two of the cylinders and it could be a blown head gasket or worse-a blown engine. I cannot help but think that the dealership is somehow responsible for some of the sequence of malfunctions. Any advice would be helpful.

If is white smoke like cloud,the coolant is mixing with the oil. Bad seals and/or head gaskets. Take it to your mechanic for diagnostic.
