The most likely cause is a blown head gasket,but it could also be a warped head,was the motor overheated prior to the problem starting? The white smoke is steam,check the underside of the oil fill cap and dipstick for a grayish brown residue,check the coolant for a low level and oil conatamination,either of these conditions verify that a head isn't fully sealed.Unless your moderately skilled mechanically this a job to be done by a shop.A good shop will perform a leakdown test to verify this.

If the smoke is white in color, has a sweet scent and deposits moisture (face the palm of your hand about 3 inches back from the exhaust tip with the engine running for a few seconds then check your hand for moisture) then you are burning coolant. If it is being burned and exiting out the exhaust, you more than likely have a head gasket leak so be cautious of the engine temperature because the car will possibly overheat. If you look closely at the smoke and if it has a blue tint in the white then you are burning oil which could be leaking from the piston rings. Further inspection would be necessary in both cases. It is very important to correct either issue immediately due to the severity of the possible outcomes that can destroy the engine and leave you stranded and car less to name a few.

If you experience the higher USEAGE of OIL on the engine then it is possible that the oil rings are weak on the engine. So please make sure that this consumption of oil is seen , if so the oil also can blacken faster and cause more damage to the engine. You will need to overhaul the engine is this problem is seen.
