Recently had new engine installed. And now there is white smoke coming from engine. It has oil. Also has lost power. Runs bad. Not sure what could be causing this.

Do you

Is the white smoke from the exhaust? If so, suspect a bad head gasket. When coolant gets into the combustion chamber, it burns white. Have that checked.

Nothing coming from exhaust.I didnt drive it after repairs except home and first day ran fine and I drove it again less than five miles and saw smoke from under hood. Coming directly from my replacement engine. And then car would not go over thirty.I am so frustrated
