It sounds like the rings are washed out for some reason. any chance you filled up at a gas station with water in there gas ? if it was me I would do a compression test and see if it is low , and it sounds like it might be then leave the plugs out and put oil in each cly turn engine over a few times and let sit over night or at least serveral hours , this will free the rings up , fuel and miss fires will wash the rings out and running will get you white smoke , after oil has set in cyl now you have to clean it out if you have qa air compressor you can shoot air into each keeping a rag over so you dont make a mess, and you can keeping one end in hand send a rag down to soak it up, you will most likely have to pull the plugs out and clean them with break clean a few times till the engine will stay running once it stays running it will smoke until the oil is gone but the compression should be back to normal and cleared up it might smoke for over an hour once you get it running you can hold throttle to 2000 rpm as well this helps a bunch. but find out where compression should be and check it . I think some how either the missfire or bad gas. did you replace any coils or coil pack ? is the miss fire gone?

SOURCE: My 2005 nissan pathfinder acts
My 2005 pathfinder was having the same problem. Took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a re-call on a relay that goes to the ECU. They suggested a engine diagnostics. If it turned out to be the relay, the part/labor and diagnostics would be free. My pathfinder is running great now. Hope this helps.
