White smoke means antifreeze is being burned in combustion chamber-you have a bad head gasket-when you replace it have the head planned or it may happen again -cheers Denny

Sounds like you blown head gasket,white smoke indicates steam,so there is water getting into engine,this is caused by blown head gasket or crack in cylinder head.

SOURCE: everytime i start my truck a puff of white smoke

Hi Friend:
Check to See if your air-temperature sensor that regulates the amount of vacuum signal that is applied to the servo motor:

The worst Problem is Blown Head Gasket will cause a Loss of Coolant and will cause the White Smoke out of Your Exhaust.

Check your Raditor for signs of Oil in it.

And Double Check your Oil to see if there are Signs of Water In your Oil.

Sounds like you Have a Bad Head Gasket or a Cracked Block That is letting Water to get into your Oil.

It sounds like it Not a Large Area of Head Gasket Failure as of Now.

But it Will Get Worst. Replace your Head Gaskets. And Check your Heads for Warpage and Cracks.

GWM Steed 2008 2.8 diesel turbo. The common fuel rail started leaking. It was fixed. When idle it did not leak but when refs up it started leaking again. Think could be due to too much pressure.

It should not over pressurize as there is a pressure relief valve on the pump I would take it back to the mechanic who repaired the vehicle and ensure when the common rail was replaced that all high pressure lines where also replaced
