sounds like you might of blown a head or intake manifold gasket or cracked head. If it sounds like a rollercoaster going up the tracks or tractor sound. it's that. It's expensive repair. My advice if you dont know anyone cheap get another used car until you fix it or whatever your situation is. Also, it idles up and down because of the air escaping from the crack. If engine doesnt hold constant pressurethats whate happens. everything is to the T when working with vehicles. Plus redline dont matter, theres a cut off point, however because of the high rev you could of caused the over rev and blew a gasket or cracked the heads. Especially if you didnt have the proper fluids to keep the temperature down. Good Luck. Been there.

Volumes of white smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. A certain amount of vapor will be present on start up, but if it is different than what has been the norm for this vehicle then a check of the cooling system is in order.

If you have white smoke coming from the cars exhaust this would indicate your engine is getting coolant in to the cylinder(s). This could be a bad head gasket, cracked or warped head. Sorry to say but your engine sounds as if it may need some big $$ work to be done to it. If you have the skills or a friend who does have a compression check done on all of the cylinders to help locate where the issue is at. Another way of check , with the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and start the engine if you see bubble in the radiator fluid this is air being pumped in to your cooling system by a cylinder or two. I wish I could bring you better news but the information you had shared you'll need to make a decision of whats your best course; repair or replace. If your confident you can do this repair over a weekend, otherwise this repair can get pricey.
Best of regards,
