Question: Dont know what's wrong

ok so the engine is misfiring, and the whole car is vibrating and shaking. The gas is being consumed way too fast, and there is grayish/white smoke putting out of the exhaust and is a very damp exhaust, dripping something onto the pavement (it's a clear liquid). the check engine light is constantly on, but at rpms >2000 it will start to blink and then will stop blinking upon slowing the rpms down. very poor acceleration, feels like it could sputter out at any time but hasn't done so yet. I put fuel injector cleaner in, which made it sound a little smoother, but the problem is still there. I then changed the spark plugs and wires but the problem is still prevalent. I was thinking some sensor might be dead but i really have no idea whatsoever. Any ideas?

I would have your head gasket checked. If you are loosing coolant. You have a blown head gasket.
