is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the
engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There
are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the
antifreeze from entering the cylinder area. The cylinder is where the
fuel and air mixture are being compressed and burned. Any amount of
antifreeze that enters this area will produce a white steam that will be
present at the tailpipe area.
Check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
