check the coolant level...perhaps a defective head gasket...check the torque of the head bolts...see if they are really loose...I suspect that a head gasket has gone off~

Yup, sounds like a head gasket. When the engine warms up everything expands, the gasket seals back up, and it stops smoking. Until it cools off again. HTH. -Jim
