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).

this sounds like you have an injector leaking and is dripping raw fuel into the combustion chamber this would explain the miss and the white smoke.

If the smoke is white in color, has a sweet scent and deposits moisture (face the palm of your hand about 3 inches back from the exhaust tip with the engine running for a few seconds then check your hand for moisture) then you are burning coolant. If it is being burned and exiting out the exhaust, you more than likely have a head gasket leak so be cautious of the engine temperature because the car will possibly overheat. If you look closely at the smoke and if it has a blue tint in the white then you are burning oil which could be leaking from the piston rings. Further inspection would be necessary in both cases. It is very important to correct either issue immediately due to the severity of the possible outcomes that can destroy the engine and leave you stranded and car less to name a few.
