Question about 2000 Mazda Protege
Sounds like you have a head gasket or cracked head problem, pull the spark plugs get a cooling system pressure tester and pump it up to about 25 psi. make sure the cooling system is full and there are no leaks. if the pressure drops pump it back up leave it there for a couple of hours and keep looking into the spark plug holes for any antifreeae leaking into the cylinders. This may take a hour or so so be patient and watch it you will find antifreeze leaking into the engine thats your white smoke. You didn't mention if it overheats or if you are using coolant please get back to me on that.
Please if you like my answer give me a good rating thank you.
