Well, the question is HOW MUCH? Coolant leaks into combustion chamber creat LOTS of white smoke, and has a sweet smell, sometimes.
\012Small amounts of white smoke are not a concern. Fact is for evey gallon of fuel you burn, you produce a gallon of water. Most of this is evaporated and not seen, but not always.
More than likely you have a blown head gasket. Have you noticed any coolant in your oil? This will make your engine oil on the dipstick appear milky colored. How about overheating? Coolant level dropping over a period of time? Some vehicles will develop a small head gasket leak and run normally for awhile before the gasket finally deteriorates worse. If you can't fix this yourself then I would have it checked out right away because it might not end up costing you an engine if you catch the problem early enough. You might get away with just haveing the head gaskets replaced, which isn't cheap either but not as expensive as an engine. GL
