Default 96 Ram 5.2 smoke?

I just got a 96 ram 5.2 with 318 on trade in and this is the first dodge ive owned. Sometimes it will smoke when i start it and clears out when i take off. It dosent smell like oil or anything and my oil level stays full between changes. I do have a small coolant leak around the front of the engine that im thinking is the water pump but im not sure that would cause anything.

Truck has 157,xxx miles

Also sometimes on take off before it switches into 2nd it will sputter. Only sometimes it will do this. The truck has New rotor cap,wires,plugs, etc. any ideas will be helpful

Sounds like a leaky fuel injector. They do wear out and sometimes will get plugged slightly open by small particles or varnish in the fuel system.

Had an old chevy blazer that did that to me........turns out it was the good old GM valve seals leaking......not bad but enough to make a couple of puffs on start up.
