Actually, white smoke usually indicates coolant is getting into the combustion chamber. Most commonly, the cause is a bad head gasket or intake gasket. Check to make sure coolant isn't leaking into the motor oil. Also, check to make sure oil isn't mixing with the coolant. If both appear okay, check the engine compression to see if there is a weak cylinder which could suggest a bad head gasket.
