White smoke indicates you have coolant in your combustion chamber.
I want you to have someone start the car when you have the white smoke problem. Put a piece of white paper over the exhaut.
Start the car. Have the paper there for a few seconds or until the smoke stops.
Look at the paper and then smell it. If it is coolant it will have a sweet coolant smell.
If you are in cold climate and the dew point is high, you will get a wisp of white smoke but it is a rare thing.
Let me know
