suddenly white smoke and now not acting like it is in gear
White smoke coming out of the exhaust usually means you are burning coolant, aka head gasket. If it's coming from below the car, your trans fluid might be leaking and burning on the exhaust pipes. Don't continue to drive it, you will damage the trans in short order.
