White smoke in the exhaust is COOLANT being in the engine cylinders, Its a result of the engine being overheated and damaged. Two simple tests can confirm this call around locate a modern service center ask if they have a Horiba gas analyzer or another is Ok, and the fee to Check (sniff) the coolant for CO and check the exhaust gas for coolant very easy..
