White smoke is usually coolant. Have your local garage perform a leak down cylinder test and or pressure test to determine if your head gasket has indeed failed. If that is the case, the top half of the engine needs to be remove, maybe have some machine work on the heads to replace the gasket.

There's also a rattling noise coming from under the hood. Could it be from that too?
