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

If it was a fuse it wouldn't blow at all. Check coolant level. Change thermostat. If still not working possibly a heater core - symptoms of a bad heater core would be losing coolant, fogging of inner winshield with defroster on or wetness on passenger side floor.,
