Sounds like you have a blown head gasket - caused by overheating. If its too hot, DONT DRIVE IT. Sounds like that's too late though. White smoke is coolant burning. Could be caused by a bad thermostat, water pump, clogged hoses or passages, ect

Agreed with the thermostat,
just replaced mine and i've noticed a difference in operating temps as well as fuel economy.
