    I have the same truck and engine and this problem occured after overheating. It was a warped head, but it could just be the head gasket. Easiest way to tell is to pull the valve cover and check for a milky sludge.

Almost sound like the problem is a head gasket. Is the oil a milky color? if so that is water in the oil and you have blown a head gasket.

I bought this car a week ago. (A 2001 buick lesabre limited). I drove it home and haven't gotten it insured yet so for the past week while I was on vacation I parked it in my garage and shut it so it would...

Lets start at the beginning. Have you checked the oil and coolant to make sure they are full ? Did it leak anything on the garage floor while it was parked ?
You could have oil or power steering fluid leaking onto the exhaust pipe which would cause a great deal of smoke.
And on most cars the check engine light will be on until the engine starts. If it stays on after the engine is running, you have trouble codes stored in the computer.

Acadia white smoke, high temp and fan won't come on

Do you have an extended warranty ?
Usually white smoke from the exhaust means the engine is burning coolant thru a blown head gasket or intake gasket.
You should also be low on coolant in the radiator.

I just bought a 96 dodge caravan 2 days ago ive drove 150 miles today and when i went to shut it off it had smoke i raised the hood its coming almost directly from the front of the van i went to leave...

How low was the oil? It could be something as simple as some oil is leaking out of the valve covers and once it hits the exhaust manifold then it starts smoking. Usually smoke coming from the engine compartment is a result of that. Look and see if it leaks any oil while you have it parked in pavement for a while in case it has something to do with the oil change.

Good Luck
