Question about Lexus ES 300
White smoke indicates oil is getting into the combustion chamber either by worn piston rings or worn valve guides.
A compression test on all cyclinders can determine if the pistion rings are worn, The garage mechanic can carry out this test for you.
replacing piston rings is a major engine overhaul, other worn parts should be replaces at this time too. A refurbish engine swap may be a cheaper option unless you are can DIY.

ITS THE ECU. misfiring and white smoke from the exhuast THAT SMELLS LIKE GAS is an ECU problem. let it run, and the "white smoke" will condense in the muffler, get a little on a stick and try to light it. it will. its gas. replace ur ecu. (i have had this problem already on same car)

This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: 93 lexus es300 overheating
with the engine running at operating tempature the electric cooling fans should be running. if they are not this means that one or more of the sensors could be faulty. either the coolant temp sensor on the intake manifold or the one on the fan assembly. also there could be a bad relay in the power distribution box under the hood. this would be a good place to start. with the engine running at tempature the fan should be running if it s not then go to the power distribution box and switch the relay of the a/c clutch with the radiator fan relay if the fans kick on then replace the fan relay if the fans do not kick on you have either a faulty temp sensor on the fan or the fan itself is bad. if the fan is running properly then it's a mechanical problem mostlikely your water pump is not circul;ating the coolant. to check this remove the radiator cap( remember if the vehicle is hot do not remove the cap it's under pressure ) touch the upper radiator hose if it is hot then the thermostat is open and it is ok if it is cold then replace the thermostat.if the radiator cap is removed and the vehicle is running you should be able to see coolant movement in the radiator if there is not replace the water pump

My Son has a 95 es300, the amp for it is located under the front passenger seat. The easiest way to access it is to remove the 4 bolts holding the seat down, and remove the seat. Takes about 5 minutes

replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap, ignition rotor, air filter, oil change, transmission flush, transmission filter&gasket .. That should do it.. It'lI be good if you could check your timing as well.. do this tune up every 15-20 thousand miles and oil changed every 3000 miles, depend on how much you drive it.
