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.

Check engine light is on1998 Isuzu rodeo ls32 v6?

the check engine light means you have something wrong with your emissions. theres something wrong with how your car lets out exhaust. There are sensers on your exhaust pipe that sense how much exhaust is being let out and how much unburned fuel is coming out. There is a computer in your car that senses that and try's to fix it. one of your sensers might be bad or you might have a clogged catalatic converter.

There is no reason to do this. Modern catalytic converters do not restrict your exhaust flow. All you will gain by breaking it out is a check engine light coming on that will never go away.
