correct me if I'm wrong (I'm sure someone on the list will)
blue is oil, white is moisture. If it doesn't persist, and

It really depends on 'how much' white smoke.
Put your hand oar a clean rag in front of the tail pipe
and have some star the car for you. This way you
can see what the smoke consists of.
