Your valve stem seals on the valves inside the head are not sealing and oil is leaking past them. That oil falls inot the cylinder of each piston and when the car is started it is burning that off. Replacing the seals are cheap, but the valve springs and valve keepers have to come off to replace them. Also that's a good time to replace the valve cover gasket.

SOURCE: vauxhall mavano van lack of
Its the EGR valve, take it off and clean it with some carb cleaner this often works rather than buying a new one, a new one is about £150 from vauxhall, its very common but do have a go at cleaning it, I got another 2 years out of mine on a astra van. EGR is exhaust gas recycler, its kinda like a little turbo, it reburns any unburnt fuel when they go wrong you loose about 70% of the total power of the van and hates climbing hills.
I would bet without any doubt that this is the fault
if you need any advice on removing it let me know, its a simple task.

I am sorry to say it looks like you have blown a head gasket. What happen is when it was overheating, it was maybe because the water pump of course was not providing water/antifreeze to the motor. Now of course that is why you took it to the shop to have water pump replaced, radiator and hoses and etc. Maybe just Maybe the thermostat could of been the original problem that cause the overheating to begin with, however that is pass tense now.
When there is white smoke pouring out the back, especially with the prior problem with the over heating, it most likely warped your head, which of course cause a leak at the head gasket. Now, the load thump or pop you hook under hood, could be because the head gasket is blown possible now threw a rod, or piston. I do not want to scare you and tell you a lot of stuff that you don't want to hear, but it will be expensive to fix if you blew a head gasket and threw a rod, or piston. Best thing to do, is i hate to say it, is get it into the shop. Yes, it would have to be towed. Unless you have a real good shop near by or good friend that is mechanically inclined to verify my diagnosis.
