    White smoke is usually a bad head or head gasket. You can sometimes check by opening your radiator cap when the car is cooled down. Then start it up and see if the coolant pushes out of the radiator; or if it uses excessive coolant. If either is happening you have a major problem.

    Does it have a Service Engine Soon/Check Engine Light on?

    There is a TSB for code P1320. It says all 6 coils need to be changed. If the resistance is to low on the coils they will fire cold and not burn all the fuel. You can start there. Good luck.
