When the white smoke coming out, there is a burnning smell. I guess it could possiblely be some oil mixed in with gas. The reapir shop informed me that they have opened the engine up from the top and checked the head and could not see any problems. They think rings are sticking. When they did some hard accelaration, they noticed more smoke. I notiece a lot of smoke when I let the car sit for 8 hours than start the engine. Once the car is running for a short while, no more visible smoke. To answer you question. No, the engine has never overheated. I keep a good maintenance record. However, the oil level seems going lower faster than normal.
