    Sounds like water is getting into the oil, when the engine is warm/hot
    Take a look at the coolant condition and sniff test

    When you switch off the engine, listen for bubbling / gurggling noises

    The reason you are getting white smoke is due to oil and water mixing, and then being superheated very quickly (turning into steam)
