It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).

your cooling system is preasureising due to a leaking cylinder head gasket the white smoke you see is coolant passing through the exhaust valve on the offending cylinder have the cooling system tested for CO content hope this advice helps

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.
The factory service manual is the only way to go.
Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)
Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs
Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs
Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

SOURCE: coolant leak
More than likely it is coming from the intake manifold. You can use a pressure tester that hooks to the radiator and use a flashlight and mirror to get a better look at where it is coming from.
