It sounds like two different problems. White smoke is indicative of water in the fuel. If it was oil burning the smoke would be blue.
The oil may be leaking out. Is there evidence of oil leakage on the road when you park? Check the engine for for oil leaks.
There are additives available at auto parts stores that deal with water in the fuel supply.
Please feel free to contact me. More details will be needed to get to the source of the oil problem

Lots of things to check
?Leaking head gasket
Does it use brake fluid
Start engine only fo a few seconds, shut down, remove all spark plugs to see which ones are fouled

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

It probably has some internal engine damage. If you pull the spark plugs one or more will probably be oil fouled.
You may want to have a compression test done and see if you can find the source of the oil - may be a head gasket.
