Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.
The first thing you need to do is checking for a coolant leak at the engine bay, look for any wet spots where you park .
Radiator ,hoses ,water pump ,freeze out plugs are common leaks on this vehicles.
If nothing find I would have the engine check for possible blown head gaskets.there is a test with special liquid and fumes from your radiator ,this test can confirm a blown head gasket ,this in case of the liquid change color.
Usually when you get the white smoke the problem is the cylinder head gaskets but you can also have a problem with the intake gasket, the test would help here.
Does the engine run poorly when you first start it ?
Does your check engine light come on or is it ON ?
Let me know.
Ok, I would scan the engine computer to see what code is coming up as the first step ,if you getting coolant into the cylinder head ,you should get like a misfiring code .
When you find out the code (misfiring code ) remove the spark plug to see if it is wet.(just let the engine run for 2 or 3 seconds before removing the plug.
If you don't have a scanner or code reader ,just stop at any major auto parts store and they will scan it for you at no cost.
Let me know what kind of code you have.
Thank you very much.
