Bad spark plugs and leads can commonly make the engine feel like its 'hesitating' or skipping a beat, often worsening in the higher rev range. However it is not the cause of white smoke. White smoke is typically associated with coolant getting into the combustion chamber. The most common cause of this is a cracked head gasket, which you will need to replace in order to rectify the white smoke.
I suspect that you have a blown head gasket letting coolant into one of the cylinders to cause the white smoke and the lowered coolant level results in over heating of the engine. overheating with white smoke indicates coolant in the combustion chamber 99% of the time this is caused by a leaking head gasket. dont keep driving till you get it repaired or you can crack the block, needing a new engime or warp…

White smoke is generally caused by coolant "anti-freeze" being introduced to the engine combustion and "out the tailpipe". Unless the "exaust gasket" doubles as a intake/coolant path gasket I don't believe that is your problem. Take the car to a reputable shop for a coolant system pressure and/or dye check. Good luck!

Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to run this engine. Sounds like steam......you may be getting coolant into the combustion chamber.
White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber, especially if you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak.
