Is there still coolant in the expansion tank? Did you notice any overheating?

The white smoke is steam.

1 Likely head gasket fail. Water level will be down. Milky emulsion will be found in filler cap or top breather pipes. Engine will over heat.

2 Water in petrol. Car will run very bad or not at all. Drain tank.
