White smoke may mean coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Check the oil dipstick and see if the oil looks clean or like a mix of oil and water. Your head gasket may need replacement.


Sounds like the head gasket is leaking if you have driven it hot have the cylinder head checked by a machine shop they are known to crack pull your oil dipstick and see if its milky looking
