white smoke means that you are burning oil and may the sign of failing valve stem seals. Using seafoam may clean them off and restore them. I would suggest putting the seafoam in the oil and driving for about 20-50 miles and then changing the oil. Repeat with cheap dino oil and repeat 2-3 more times.
