Why would bluish-white smoke come from the oil covers into the car and out of the exhaust?

Sounds like coolant is leaking into the engine. Which means it probably has a cracked or blown head gasket.

My understanding of exhaust smoke is that Blue is oil, Black is unburnt fuel, White is unburnt diesel on cold start. The main question would be, how much smoke and when does it do it?

what kind of gasoline are you running? and what color is the smoke?

I know the white smoke would be caused by coolant, which would be leaking into the combustion chamber.

The exhaust should be colorless. Smoke is created by an imbalance of the oil:fuel mixture. Black smoke is too much fuel (rich). White-blue smoke would be too much oil.
