If the smoke has a sweet smell to it then it is coolant from an internal leak inside the engine like a head gasket or other source. To confirm that you have a leaking head gasket have a shop problem the coolant recovery/surge tank with a gas analyzer for the presence of hydrocarbons in the coolant tank, this indicates for sure that a head gasket is the cause of the white smoke.
