Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** *****
The Engine light will be coming on as a consequence of the problem casuing the white smoke.
White smoke occurs when raw diesel comes through the exhaust completely intact and un-burned. It will usually sting your eyes when you get this -
Common causes are as follows:
Water entering combustion spaces will also create white smoke. Faulty head gaskets and cracked cylinder heads or blocks are a common cause of water entry, and are often to blame.
Check your coolant levels - with your outlined symptoms I would first suspect coolant getting into the engine ( head gasket leak ) as the cause -
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
