check the oil for colour... is it gray ?
other solution may be that the catalytic converter is plugged

SOURCE: clouds of white smoke
Dense white smoke usually indicates coolant/antifreeze getting into the combustion chambers. This can be from a "blown" head gasket or from a crack in the cylinder head or the block. In either case, this involves some major work on the engine. Replacing a head gasket is preferable cost-wise to replacing a cylinder head or the entire engine (block).

If the engine is using oil then first remove the dipstick and run the engine, check to see if heavy smoke is coming out of the tube, this would indicate worn piston rings,if it is not so dense, yet you are using oil and it smokes bad from the exhaust, then its likely the valve seals are worn. either way, unless you have mechanical knowledge, tools etc , you need to take it to a mechanic for the engine repairs or live with the oil consumption. There are no quick fixes for engine wear.

This symptom is usually due to worn valve guides. The guides allow oil to drip into the manifold ports. When the engine starts, it has to burn off the oil, but the leakage is so small that it becomes unnoticable after the engine has been running. To prevent this, the cylinder head(s) must be removed and the valve guides either knurled or replaced. Please let me know if you have more questions.
