Repair the pipe, fill and bleed the air from cooling system (consault factory repair manual for procedure) and recheck electric cooling fan, you are aware the fan only runs when the engine temp. reaches a a certain temp. useually around 230 deg F It will also run if the AC is on, but it will not run all the time.

White smoke means water is getting into the engine from teh coolant system. Likely that your engine cylinder head has a crack, or head gasket is bad

You may have a small pin hole in one of your hoses that is only leaking under pressure. Of course you may not notce it with the vehicle idling because the pressure is higher as the rpms rise while you are driving.

More importantly though, you need to check your oil dipstick. If the oil looks "milky" you may have water leaking into your oil. This can happen if you have a problem with your "heads" such as a small crack. A cracked head can lead to a blown motor so check it out as you are checking all of your hoses on your cooling systems.

Good Luck!
