Mine will blow white smoke in 40* weather for about a mile. Haven't had any engine problems.

Does it stop after the engine is at normal operating tempature. If so then I wouldn't worry to much about it. As long as the engine is prrring like a cat. Not running rough. The white smoke stops after the engine is warm. Then it is most likely normal.

If the engine is running rough, and the white smoke does not stop, and you have a loss of power then you have an injector problem or other fuel related problem.
