SOURCE: my truck blows white smoke
There are two differnt reasons for black and white smoke coming from the tail pipe.
Black smoke means fuel runs rich (car getting to much gas). Check fuel pressure/air filter.
In some cases the white smoke means car is burning oil or transmittion fluid. Have tem checked/replaced.
If you can feel a smelly smoke it can be catalytic converter.
In a worsest scenario if car blowing white smoke it can be engine coolant is getting into an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket ,or a warped/cracked head. So you need to keep your eye on coolant level and check your engine for overheat. Also might be good to check your oil for traces of coolant (on a dipstick it would be a milky substance mixture of oil and coolant).

SOURCE: smoke and water from tailpipe
That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.
Hope this helps

White smoke is indicative of a leaking head gasket or cracked head.
The liquid enters the combustion chamber and is ignited with the gas - and the exhaust is water vapors.
(unless you drove through a puddle that splashed watyer onto the exhaust)
The head gasket/cracked head is most evident on startup.
If your coolant level goes down with no visible leaks - your problem is internal (head gasket failure or cracked cylinder head).
