Just had my car in the garage with horrendous white smoke coming from the exhaust. The problem with mine was a blocked crankcase breather. When blocked oil is passed into the exhaust system apparently.
Problem solved by the mechanic and half a day in the garage with the engine running to burn off the excess oil in the exhaust and the problem was solved. Had gentle ride out to the coast yesterday approx 1.5 hrs each way and the smoke has gone.
Good result for £160.00. I dread to think what the dealer would have charged.

There are indeed traces of oil coming out of the exhaust. Blue smoke is burning oil. Grey or white smoke is usually coolant/water going through the engine. This can be caused by leaking head gaskets, valve guides depending on the engine, excessive blow-by, etc. Large amounts of oil are not good; and water is even worse. I would look at getting the head gasket replaced. The loss of power is because neither oil or water likes to burn, and once your engine clears it out, it probably runs ok for the rest of the day. Then I'm guessing the next morning, it comes back. This is an urgent fix, because prolonged leakage can damage the engine block, head, or both.
