TOYOTA HIGHLANDER SMOKE PROBLEM

2001 Toyota Highlander • 179,500 miles

I've been having a lot of white smoke come out of my exhaust pipe when I start up my car. It doesn't happen every day but when it does it's enough to where if you were standing behind my car you would be mad. It's all White smoke and I've been told that's better than blue or black smoke.
At 178000 miles I went and had my oil changed and told them about the white smoke. They changed the oil & flushed all my fluids. The next day the white smoke was still there. When I called them they said, well your car is old and has a lot of miles on it. It’s embarrassing, when I start up my car I have to make sure that no one is around. What can/should I do?

Have the coolant pressure checked for leaks, it sounds like it may be a head/intake gasket problem.
