Sounds like head gasket, or possible lower intake gasket

Does it use any oil, or lose any coolant? If not, do you make a lot of short trips, then shut it off by chance? If your not using oil, or coolant, then I'd say take it on a long drive at highway speeds to drive out the moisture laying in your exhaust system. Recently had a muffler go on wife's car that does a lot of short trips, and old muffler was almost full of water from condensation and obviously poor exhaust design, that allowed it to build up like that. Took it next night on trip about an hour away. Every time I took off, or passed a car, white smoke rolled out the back. On way home, it stopped and cleared up.

Blue smoke is usually oil burnig related. White smoke is due to coolant mixing with the oil. (Head gasket leak) You should have the coolant system pressurized by a garage to see if your system holds pressure. This test will tell a lot. Coolant in the oil is a big problem.

White smoke means that you have a coolant leak. Two possible causes for that - either the head gasket is punctured and must be replaced or the head itself is damaged and must be welded by an expert.
Either way the engine must be dismantled to make a full diagnose and repair.
