Question about Toyota Camry
White smoke is generally oil and not related to your heater box. If you do not get hot air from the heater after the car has warmed up then the heater box is probably blocked or there may be a problem with the selector cable. For the oil you could try a heavy weight semi synthetic oil. Won't solve the problem or oil use but might reduce the smoke. Rarely the issue could be a faulty breather. Otherwise an engine rebuild is likely the only solution.

SOURCE: white smoke comes out tail pipe
Its perfectly normal.Hot exhaust gases mixing with cold air and by products of the combustion process create the watery substance that you see spit out .Dual fuel (LPG,Hydrogen etc) vehicles do this a lot more noticably.By products of the combustion process are various but water vapour is one of them.Alot of heat is generated by the exhaust so watching a car driving in very cold conditions you can see this effect more clearly

if the white smoke is in the morning,only then it is valve seals and if it is through out the day as your driving the vehicle then the engine need over houling,(rings metal and main bearing in the engine need to be relace,including valve seal , top gasket,botom gasket and oil seal for proper perfomance.

SOURCE: white smoke from tail pipe
It often means that you are burning antifreeze. You asked if it needs antifreeze, have you noticed any leaking out of the reservoir tank while you are running it? Sometimes when the head gasket goes it will produce a passage for the antifreeze to pass from the capillaries into the combustion chamber. It is easy to check if you have an air compressor. Remove one of the rear sparkplugs and the radiator cap. Fill the radiator and then push some air into the sparkplug hole (get a good seal in case a valve is open). Repeat with all the cylinders and watch for air bubbles coming up into the radiator. If bubbles come up or fluid is pumped out, the head gasket is blown and must be replaced. It is more likely to happen at the back of the engine because it is farthest away from the fan and therefore gets less cooling. Also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings.

look for block return lines- air leak in suction lines -block fuel line or filter - defective injection pump -inoperative glow plugs.
