Tapping engine noises?????

I felt my 2.4 jtdm brera judder a bit at speed and ever since it has developed a loud tapping noise from the engine.....
The noise seems to be coming from the injectors but the engine was shaking a bit and there was white smoke coming from the exhaust when I started the engine again after about a 4 hour rest.
Any ideas on issues and what the fix cost may be??
Thanks guys!!!!

That sounds like a failed or leaking injector.
Firstly check for any fuel or an oily black build up around the injectors and then if it all looks ok then it is probably an internal fault but you need to get it diagnosed by a trusted garage
