Which one? Thanks.

Coolant and oil excesses
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.

White smoke does typically mean coolant. Does vehicle overheat?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No and it runs very well
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.

It sounds like your head gasket is leaking, nothing else would cause coolant to enter combustion chamber which is why you have the white smoke. This is about a 22 hour job book rate so you will want to call around to get some different quotes. Let me know if you have more questions, sorry about the bad news. Thanks.
