Possible high mileage and engine wear causing Extreme blow back of oil into the air-box. Valve cover gasket made the seal of the engine better (instead of leaking from the valve cover) now its forced upstream into the intake, white smoke is coolant in the exhaust, blue smoke is oil burning in the exhaust! Engine worn out. Remove a spark plug inspect for oil soaked, or very wet plug tip.

Consider having the CRANKCASE VENTILATION SYSTEM checked and serviced.
