Can anything other than a blown head gasket cause white smoke to come from the exhaust?

Intake manifold or it's gasket, cracked head or block are other possible causes.White smoke may seem evident if you do short drives and moisture is built up in the exhaust from not getting hot enough.

The only common head gasket on the Taurus (FORD) is their 3.8 motor. It usually surfaces between 60,000 and 100,000 miles.
