try checking the tank u do have to lift it with a jack but if its not the tank then it could be comming from the gas line which is under the van as well.

You should replace the cooling fan. With the ac on and no cooling fan, high pressure builds in the condensor and compressor bogging the engine down. When it gets too high a relief valve dumps and you get what appears to be white smoke. It's actually freon, hence the smell. I've replaced several PT cooling fans with the same symptoms.

White smoke when first started is normal. If white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.
Black smoke is caused by a rich fuel condition.
Blue smoke is caused by oil consumption.
You need to check your oil cap for yellow/white gunk on the cap if you have this then this is a sign your head gasket is cracked. Check to see if your radiator coolant level is down this is also another sign.
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

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.

you have hit the nail on the head ,starting a cold engine and just leaving it to idle takes a while to warm up ,but driving it straight away which is what you should do get the engine warm quicker ,also reduces your carbon footprint.When the engine is cold it burns oil till the correct clearance and tolerances are reached .

Testimonial: "Thanks. I might just buy another engine for her and put it in, rebuild this one, and reinstall later. "
