CAR BLOWING WHITE SMOKE OUT THE INTAKE, AND WONT START IDEAS REPAIRS?

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee • 250,000 miles

My 1996 grand cherokee laredo straight 6 4l was running at one point. My sister borrowed it ran it hot and left it on the side the road for a long while. Recently went and got it. When I try to crank it the starter turns but the engine wont catch and start. Everyonce in a while the engine will blow a white smoke out the top of the engine. Me not being mechanically inclined what would be causing this and what can I do to fix?
