Question about 1999 Ford Escort
No good new there
I wouldn't recommend purchasing any vehicle used,with more than 30 to 50 thousand miles,just me.
Lucas, is a mom and pop company, with apparently excellent marketing skills. Son Lucas, runs a top fuel NHRA dragster and owns another team. They may have some good products, but I have never and won't likely ever use any. No product I know of in a bottle fixes anything. Having owned a trans shop,I would recommend Lubgard's Products,only,nothing else.
The White Smoke is an indication of coolant being drawn into the cylinders and exiting the exhaust. It could be an intake gasket or a head gasket.
May get lucky,sort of,and just be able to get it fixed.
There are a few ways to test compression,cylinder leakage,coolant issues,such as yours. You will need a good repair shop. Be part of the process, and go there before and during any work you authorize,and see what is taking place,don't just leave it and hope they know what their doing. Have them so you and explain test results

Unfortunately, it sounds like a head gasket. If it only does it when you start it, it is probably leaking antifreeze into the cylinders slowly, and as the engine heats up it will close the gap. If this is the problem it is only a matter of time before the head gasket goes completely and the engine will need to be repaired.
