If the car is running ok and there is no water in the oil i would say it is condensation mixed with rust.

I have a 2002 Isuzu Trooper V6 there is oil coming out the exhaust and drives fine for a few miles then acts like it looses all power. And the rpm's goes up no power. What do I need to do to fix?

oil liquid oil???? (like a river of oil; really)or just smoke.
that is real bad deal that.

coming out of what. try to be clear.
dripping off CAT
dripping out exh. ports.
dripping out tail pip end.
where. (exactly where)
or show a photo. here.

I SEE 2 POSTS (my guess, 6ve1 enigne twin cam)
with cop coil questions???
well,(no pun) when you remove them?
any mech(tech) looks down that well holes
and if full of oil , its VC time.
if full of water, shoot your pressure waster guy.
or if the boots are all melted and or look all nwith carbon, its NEW BOOT TIME

this is all basics of a tuneup with cares with cops.
need a book> can show one,

VC means valve cover gasket SET , which includes
the rings that keep wells DRY.
not Viet cong, (i survived them mofos.)

Im loosing water from exaust

You really need to give more details. Are you losing cooling liquid? In other words, does the vehicle overheat at any time, or do you have to replenish radiator water regularly?
Seeing water emitting from the exhaust is natural. Gasoline is a hydrocarbon compound, and it is the hydrogen in the molecules that explode in the combustion chamber when oxygen is drawn in from the atmosphere through the air intake and intake manifold, compressed in the engine and ignited by the spark. When hydrogen and oxygen are combined they release explosive energy, which is what makes the engine go.
These gases also form water when they combine, in the form of steam, which is blown out through the exhaust system. The exhaust system is designed to allow the exhaust gases to cool down before releasing them back into the air, and if conditions are right, especially if the air is cool, the steam condenses to water which drips, or even sprays, from the exhaust. This is quite normal.

1990 Corolla started shaking after I accelerated rapidly (gunned the engine)

White smoke coming out of exhaust is water vapor. Blue is oil burning and black is carbon from unburned fuel.
U have water or coolant leaking into your combustion cylinders - not a good thing. Probably blown head gasket.

Check your oil - if it like a brown mud then the coolant has also gotten into the lubrication system.

2.0L VW Golf Leaking Water

It is most likely the A/C drain if you have been running your A/C system or have been using your defrosters. (normal operation)

Also, you may want to take a closer look and see if it is dripping from the exhaust. A normal by-product of the chemical reactions going on inside your catalytic converter is H2O. Most exhaust systems on modern automobiles are equipped with drip holes in the resonators and/or mufflers to help prevent severe corrosion of the exhaust system due to the water that is produced..

I have a few questions. First, my 01 Rodeo has been leaking oil towards the back of the engine. A friend who used to work at an auto shop told me that if it's the rear main seal, that it is not worth...

First things first - your rear main seal is worth replacing if you plan on keeping your rig. (Sounds like your friend doesn't want to get roped into doing the work) Rear mains wear for all kinds of reasons - something as simple as using cheap oil. Your exhaust leak you're going to need to get under with gloves and feel pipe(s) at flanges etc... if you don't feel up to it, have a good muffler shop look at it. Lastly, you have a rear trans seal leaking which is blowing trans fluid back on driveshaft. It's another job you might have a shop do.
