My 9-5 2.3t is loosing coolant regularly. It's leaking into the motor. When I start in the morning is shutters and billows white smoke that smells of burning coolant. Any thoughts?

Headgasket likely failed. Perform a leak down and or compression check to verify. Do not drive it anymore till you get it replaced, you don't want to damage the engine any further.
