Are you loosing coolant? If you are, you may have a leaking head gasket. Coolant will leak into the cylinder and is turned to steam as the engine is running and comes out the exhaust as steam.

SOURCE: white smoke
Sounds typical of head gasket failure.
With this you get oil into cylinders / water into cylinders, burning oil, loosing water - but no leaks. "boiling" of radiator and overflows.
Check your coolant and oil levels - they will be low.
Get a few quotes for a head gasket replacement - and timing belt change, as it has to come off when you do this anyway & no sense putting an old one on - they often snap if retensioned.
If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! thanks.

SOURCE: coolant leak
More than likely it is coming from the intake manifold. You can use a pressure tester that hooks to the radiator and use a flashlight and mirror to get a better look at where it is coming from.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your swift response. This will help me a lot to know if my mechanic is lying to me."
Check to See if your air-temperature sensor that regulates the amount of vacuum signal that is applied to the servo motor:
The worst Problem is Blown Head Gasket will cause a Loss of Coolant and will cause the White Smoke out of Your Exhaust.
Check your Raditor for signs of Oil in it.
And Double Check your Oil to see if there are Signs of Water In your Oil.
Sounds like you Have a Bad Head Gasket or a Cracked Block That is letting Water to get into your Oil.
It sounds like it Not a Large Area of Head Gasket Failure as of Now.
But it Will Get Worst. Replace your Head Gaskets. And Check your Heads for Warpage and Cracks.
