OLDSMOBILE ALERO GAS PROBLEM

2002 Oldsmobile Alero • 140,000 miles

Car uses a lot of coolant, I dont see it leaking any where around the hoses or on the block. When it gets cold out side the car will not fire some times, I need to jump the battery and keep trying to turn it over and then eventually it will turn over, there is a bunch of white steamy smoke that comes from the tail pipe when it first starts but after a few minutes it will go away.

I'm thinking water is getting into the cylinders some how maybe from a bad gasket.

some one had told me it might be a bad intake gasket. I dont know. Just wondering if this is something I can do my self.
