have you driven it at least 100 miles since repair?, the oil residue builds up inside the exhaust and burns off very slowly from the previous failed turbo seal.

The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.
Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.
Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

Clean air filter, fuel filter and turbo filter. Check the inlet and outlet manifolds incl. EGR valve and Turbo gate. If there is particle filter then may be it is clogged. If its a diesel then open the injectors and clean it.

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust
That is normal, condensation. Check your coolant level and make sure smoke doesnt smell like coolant. If it is coolant then it is a blown headgasket. Have a repair shop do a quick test.

i have a simialer problem but i was getting neat fuel out the exhaust as well . i removed the engine because id got a replacement then stripped the old one and as i thought it was a valve timing problem.looking at the engine from the front the cams on the left bank had jumped one tooth out of time so fuel was not being burnt and coming straight through the exhaust.strangely it didnt seem to have a big missfire and idling and smoke got worse when warm.
