hello, white smoke is usually a sign of burning coolant and an issue with either a blwon egr cooler or head gasket,Does it have a lot of miles and any of those repairs done?Is it low on coolant or oil in the coolant? Check engine light happen to be on and have it checked for any trouble codes that might be stored?
