Sound like you might have a blow head gasket, but im not really going to say that until the last resort. It can possibly be a big exhaust leak too, but since u mentioned white smoke... Try to locate where exactly the smoke is coming from. Open your hood and try to find exactly where its coming from. I would also recommend doing a compression test: http://www.geocities.com/dsmgrrrl/FAQs/compression.htm

about two days ago, My car was kinda boging down at low rpm's in first gear when accellerating normal .
i recently had my head gasket replaced along with new lifters, new t belt,i do have a crack in my exaust manifold*(small hairline crack)* but i dont think that would be the cause of prob.. my car wont start just turns over *(normal)* the white smoke happen when the car was running for like 5 secs or so, then the car turned off , now the car wont start just cranks over and over *(battery is good voltage 14 amps)* it had the tune up about 4 months ago with new water pump t belt valve springs, and the head gasket.)*
if car had bad compression or timing was off the car would pulse all out of wack ...
please any more info is helpful..
