I have white smoke pouring out of the exhaust when I accelerate hard in the lower gears. Its that bad you cant see the cars behind. It drives normal and doesn't do It when I drive normal.I have changed the air filter, but haven't had time to do any thing else. It is really bad.

Do you

Have you checked the coolant level?
Has it been overheated recently?

It hasent overheated yet, the coolant level is on the bottom mark, I don't know where it was before as I have only just had the car, and it was bought as seen.

The smoke sounds like coolant being burned which would likely be due to a blown head gasket, probably from a previous overheating.
