SOURCE: White smoke exhaust
White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

If the smoke is white, or steam it is water. you might have cracked the head or warped it. Did you get it looked at before you put the new gasket on? If the smoke is black then it is oil. Do a compression check and see if you don't have a bad cylinder. They should all be about the same give or take 5 lbs.

if the smell only comes on when the heater is on try pulling the blower motor mice like to build nests in the blower motor housing.

Hey WendyandRon..there is 3 types of smoke..that comes from a combustion engine that has a problem..there is black smoke..which means it running excessively rich with fuel..the next is a blue smoke.which means oil consumption..which could mean the engine is worn..but not always..there is other factors..and then white smoke..from a bown head gasket..and if ya hang out at the rear exhaust pipe..you probably can tell me what it really smells like..and we can go from there

The engine could be shot, oil is being burnt off by the actions of being sucked into the bores via worn piston rings then ejected out of the exhaust
If you sent the car in for an MOT and a Service I would ask the garage what they did to it as the car would have failed on its emissions test if that much oil was coming out .
It could have been a fault on the oil pump or lack of oil in the first instance and maybe an overfill on the service
You paid your money now go back for redress
