The white smoke at start up is not a big issue, only if it was constant. Have you cleaned your throttle body and Idle Control valve of carbon? How many miles, replace the plugs and filters lately?

Yes cleaned those and plugs have less than 5000 miles,K&N air filter cleaned and reoiled,103000 miles on odometer
