Black smoke would indicate that your engine is running rich, not white.

Is your car running rough? White smoke would indicate water could be entering your combustion due to a blown head gasket.

Check your oil dipstick for any signs of coolant in the oil and go from there.

I wouldn't drive your car under these conditions until you find out what's going on -- serious damage could result if you're getting coolant in the oil (hydrolock, etc)

Good luck
