Do you mean Explorer? Expedition is a full size SUV that came out in 1997. White smoke out the tail pip usually means cooling issues (leaking coolant into combustion chamber). Motor may have seized if it will not start up again. Sorry to say the engine may very well be toast. Seek professional assistance
