White smoke from engine

(1998 Ford Explorer)
in Jacksonville, FL on April 13, 2010
White smoke comes from my engine. If I take off the oil cap smoke comes out, it does not come out of the exhaust. It does not seem to be burning oil. i recently had the radiator and gas pump replaced. If anybody can help that would be awesome, I feel like I have entered a money pit.
