I have seen some mazda motors having busted cam shafts, so that's the only thing i can think of. if you didn't say behind the throtle body, i would say you have a busted piston but i doubt that's the case here.

its not just the camshaft timing marks you set up, you also have to have the crankshaft timing mark set right to or you may damage your engine
check the internet for the right timing procedure for you model car ok
You dont say weather its a petrol or diesel engine as there a slight differance in the answer and if a turbo on a diesel thats even more of a differance, but taking it a petrol .
Well to start with the white smoke Isent smoke its water and after going through the engine it turns into Steam and thats what you see..
Running on 3 clyinders is caused through 1 cylinder isent working as a engine should and has a bad valve or a broken piston ring or more and even a cracked head and gasket letting the water through,,,also the broken ring works like a oil pump as if not firing given you power then it works like a oil pump and pumps it into the cylinder that dosent work only pumping oil into the hot exhaust system while running.CAUSING SMOKE
And if a turbo then could be the turbo bearings worn and pushing oil into the engine and still doing the same as before.
Let me know how you get on. RON
