Smoking and pinging

I have a 08 with over 200000 miles on it. My truck at a idle pings and blows white smoke. If I take off the ping isn't as noticable and the white smoke goes away after a short time. But let me pull up to a light and it resumes blowing white smoke. Sometimes it might do this for several days then let up some but then comes back. Ive had it loose power before but not recently. Any thoughts?

Personally, I'd stop driving it now. Had a Dodge 06 tick sometimes. Injector stuck open, destroyed cylinder/piston.

checking the blow by might be a good start
