Wite smok from exaust system. When starting some time wite smok and smell of burning oil. Some time do not smoking.Do not pick up from low speed fast. The engine is turbo and inter cooler

Smoke can be from rings worn out, cracked piston, valve guide seals if smokes at start up then stops, fueling issues if fuel is to rich but that smoke is usually black, also if head gasket is blown or head is cracked water burning turns into steam which looks like white smoke. This can also be why won't start just turns over.

Jeep shudders and brake lights flicker as I turn ignition off.

It sounds like the engine is diesiling -- this is usually caused by incorrect ignition timing and/or buildup of carbon on the pistons/valves. Also, lower octane gas can contribute to this.

Sounds like it needs a tune-up.
