Could be just the heat off the hot radiator in a minus temp environment. Just like your breath outside on a cold morning?

However if you doubt that is the case then try to see where exactly the smoke is coming from (Mind not to burn yourself). Maybe a leaking Rad hose/cap?

Hope this helps

    By the way, for my solution I'm presuming the radiator was hot (engine was running for a while) when you noticed the smoke?

SOURCE: Coolant light on an AUDI TT 2000

It sounds like it is low on coolant. Coolant expands when it warms up so if it is just low enough to trip the switch when it is cold it will shut the light off when it warms up. You should be ok to just top it off but be sure that what you put in is compatible with what is in it. There must also be a leak somewhere in the system for you to have lost some to begin with. Depending on how many miles you have on the car it wouldn't hurt to have the cooling system flushed if it's never been done before. If you do get it flushed take it to the dealer to have it done. Explain to them the low coolant and have them check the system for leaks at the same time. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Engine management light come on on an audi tt 2001

Really need the codes when the light comes on. Stop by advanced auto parts and have them read it, or buy a $50 tool. Will save you hundreds with an Audi.
Most likely is MAF sensor. Not as scary as sounds, and you may be able to fix it your self if you can twist a screwdriver.
Are you getting any coolant warnings?

Hi, My Audi A6 is overheating and the coolant is

Fan turns on when you turn the AC on, and when coolant gets too hot (over middle of the instrument).
White smoke in exhaust means coolant gets into the cylinder, typically head gasket or crack.
Is the upper radiator hose (the one that goes to the coolant expansion tank getting very hot? Observe when car is warming up. When coolant temp gauge needle is in the middle, the upper radiator hose should get warm; also the radiator (you can touch the top and check) should get warm at that time. The means that the thermostat opened as it should (when engine warmed up). If it does NOT get hot, then the thermostat is stuck closed, which can lead to overheating. Still, the fans should kick in.

Kia Sedona oil light white smoke

Are you sure this is not the low oil pressure warning light, bet that it is. The white smoke may be from a blown head gasket, any shop can tell you just by the smell of the smoke, if it smells "sicky Sweet" then it is coolant being burned in the engine and you have big problems.

Oil light comes on in hot weather

Changing the computer doesn't sound right. Most likely a bad oil temp sensor. Make sure you are using the recommended weight (synthetic) oil.
