This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket.I gasket. The white smoke is the coolant leaking out of the engine and winding up in the oil passages, due to a bad head gasket. To confirm this,
1. check oil. Is level increased, or milky appearance?
2. Is coolant level dropping, but u don't see any signs of leaks?
The above indicates a bad head gasket, causing the white smoke u describe. Let me know how u make out.

Check for free play on distrubtor.
If you has a known good disturbutor then do the swap.
===== Lite white smoke during warm up is OK.
If the white smoke is still noticable after 15 minutes of start up then you should start monitor the coolant level and oil level.
If the temp. is raising then it can be stage one of blown headgasket.
Keep track of the temp. and make sure the oil is not getting a white/creamy texture.
DO NOT drive it if it's overheating.

Does it use any oil, or lose any coolant? If not, do you make a lot of short trips, then shut it off by chance? If your not using oil, or coolant, then I'd say take it on a long drive at highway speeds to drive out the moisture laying in your exhaust system. Recently had a muffler go on wife's car that does a lot of short trips, and old muffler was almost full of water from condensation and obviously poor exhaust design, that allowed it to build up like that. Took it next night on trip about an hour away. Every time I took off, or passed a car, white smoke rolled out the back. On way home, it stopped and cleared up.

if its a bittersweet smell its a crack cylinder head or a leaky head gasket give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your SUV wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

White smoke means that you have a coolant leak. Two possible causes for that - either the head gasket is punctured and must be replaced or the head itself is damaged and must be welded by an expert.
Either way the engine must be dismantled to make a full diagnose and repair.
