    My Dodge is suddenly running very rough and a lot of exhaust is pouring out the back. The car cant be driven this way, what might be the problem? Is the engine shot? It’s a 2008 Dodge Durango with Hemi Engine.

    Is that steam or burning oil?
    If it is steam, it’s most likely:
    A blown head gasket
    Warped head or block or both
    Damaged head
    Damaged block
    If it is burning oil:
    Bad valve seal
    Damaged piston ring(s)
    Faulty PCV
    Blown gasket
    Your going to have to do some diagnosing.
    Check for CEL codes
    Compression test on all cylinders.
    Leak down test all cylinders.

    Steam usually dissipates pretty quickly. Look at a pot of boiling water
    Burning oil is usually thick and hangs around a longer time
