Both white smoke coming from the tailpipe and the engine temperature overheating are signs the cylinder head gasket is blown. You should have a block test performed to verify.

Why my check engine light on and white smoke came out

If you have white smoke coming out the exhaust its usually a sign of a blown head gasket. I'm willing to bet it got hot and you warped the head

Car is stalling, using a lot of gas

Please be more specific.
1. Is it stalling while driving? Or when it is just idling?
2. By using a lot of gas, about how much more?
3. Is there a lot of white smoke coming from the exhaust?

1999 Cadillac eldorado overheating. Changed thermostat, still overheating now with white smoke coming from exhaust. Checked water pump belt, it is there and turning. Cold air blowing from heater, no heat.

coolant leaking into engine probably blown head gaskets. More damage will occur the more you drive it. Unfortunate and expensive repair on a northstar.

When i am in traffic for a long time the exhaust system let out alot of white smoke i recently did a tune up and i don't know what is the problem. My car is the mitsubishi galant 2003

white smoke is an indication of water in the cylinder that isnt burning (white smoke is steam). also this indicates that you have a bad head gasket.

My 01 grand am gt is overheating the cars heat will only blow cold air and alot of thick white smoke comes out of the exaust

White smoke is a sign of burining antifreeze. When heater is not blowing warm air, that is a sign of faulty heater core.
No power, coolant loss, overheating, is sign of headgasket leak.
Double check your thermostat as well.

My teperature gauge on my mitsubishi galant show's it is overheating 5 minutes after i start my motor

Is the car actually overheating? Are you adding coolant often or occasionally? Check your thermostat to see if it's working properly. If it's stuck closed, that's about how long it would take start to overheat. To check, remove thermostat, boil water in an old pot, drop thermostat in, it should open. If it doesn't, replace it.
