White smoke is a good indication you have a blown head gasket. And/or a cracked head. Did you noticed, when it happened that the engine started running rough? Best i can do with little info.

I would check the plug wires and the exhaust system.

If the check engine light is blinking , that indicates a cylinder misfire has been detected White smoke coming out of the exhaust ( especially when the engine is warmed up ) indicates that coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket , a warped or cracked cylinder head

Have it checked for codes. That should give you a starting point for diagnostics.
