SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust pipe..
Well white sweet smelling smoke is generally water from the cooling system. Mostly water, that is. The sweet smell comes from the antifreeze/coolant spewing into the air.
Well, a blown head gasket or cracked head gasket would cause this, and other problems.
Try Bar's Leaks $33 head gasket repair solution before spending hundreds on a head gasket replacement. It worked for some seepage problems I had on a 1997 Cadillac that did the same thing.
It missed upon startup when hot or cold.

Probably a blown head gasket, antifreeze is leaking into the cylinders and is being pushed as steam through the exhaust. It will need to be parked, make arrangements to tow it to a facility and have the offending head removed for a new gasket installed. If it is the front head, it is easier to do than the rear head, but it is a major repair regardless.

The white exhaust is a bad head gasket
and coolant causing the white smoke
That's about as bad as it gets, forget
the other issues for now
I would part with it and stay away from
any van type vehicles,the transmissions
