Are you loosing any coolant or oil? Is the smoke white or light grey. If you are loosing coolant then the smoke is the coolant burning, which could mean a leaking head gasket, cracked water jacket in the block or the head.

Pretty easy to diagnose. Have the coolant check and I would bet it is low. Then have the head taken off and checked for cracks and warping. Then get a new head gasket and put it back together but I might suggest as long as you down that far to think about replacing the timing belt and water pump.
