Hi . Okay white/grayish smoke is a sign of unburnt fuel .This is normally due to low engine compression ,which is very common on this engine.Also possible :Worn out injectors .Bad timing . But to be honest we see this a lot and its low compression so have the engine compression tested . Please rate my help a good to excellent if you are satisfied .If not ready to rate don't rate poor or bad service as we can continue to work on this issue or I can opt out and recommend another expert .After accepting there is no extra charge for further assistance.If I don't reply soon I will as quickly as I can when i get back on line.Kind regards Greg
