White smoke means that coolant gets into engine's combustion chamber.
Probably because of overheating and damaged gasket. Anyway disassembly
and inspection needed.

Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad, or it could be an ignition break down, possible ignition control module, if its the ignition module it's best to get it with the distributor then by it's self, much cheaper as an assembly.
