Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty
The only reason for white smoke is rich mixture in the engine. i.e. more fuel and less air....
and when the mixture gets consentrated the engine shuts off.
Reset the mixture by reducing the fuel and increasing air mixture.

If the smoke is always there, not just on start up, likely it is a head gasket, but still small enough to not be causing an overheat. I'd have a hydrocarbon test done on the cooling system just to be sure. Shutting off while running could be a result of a head gasket problem but there are quite a number of items that can cause that as well. The smoking is of primary concern right now because if you hurt the engine because of a gasket problem, nothing else will matter and, coolant in a combustion chamber can throw sensors out of range and give you false readings while testing them.

SOURCE: white smoke comes out tail pipe
Its perfectly normal.Hot exhaust gases mixing with cold air and by products of the combustion process create the watery substance that you see spit out .Dual fuel (LPG,Hydrogen etc) vehicles do this a lot more noticably.By products of the combustion process are various but water vapour is one of them.Alot of heat is generated by the exhaust so watching a car driving in very cold conditions you can see this effect more clearly
