Car is sputtering and has white smoke coming out.
1999 CHEVROLET PRIZM
Car is sputtering and has white smoke coming out of tailpipe. Not running hot, no coolant in the oil, and runs fine in neutral.

White smoke usually indicates coolant is getting into the combustion chamber. Usual cause of that is a bad head gasket. That is where I would check first.
