usually if there is white smoke coming out of anywhere in your exhaust that's an indication that your engine is burning oil, most likely caused by a leaking or blown head gasket, but could be caused by oil leaking down the pipe from your other leaks and burning off. Oil smoke is NOT WHITE... If you have white smoke/steam coming from the exhaust then that will be engine coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Nother words you have a BAD head gasket or a cracked head. Blue smoke is oil.
