Are you sure it's white smoke and it happens when car is warm. Because it could be valve seals, since the way you discribe, it could be valve seals. I know a good shop for valve seals in Leesburg Va.

Don't buy 545 if valve seals, transfer pipe and alternator bracket seal were repaired before. It's real big bucks. Just two cents about 545 and 550. Now after owning 550 I would go and buy 535 100%
