The engine is bringing out white smoke when the accelerator is pressed and while driving when the Air condition is on. Also the engine oil is short.

For the third time of asking , have you checked the coolant level ???????? If low , you may need a block test carried out .

You can also get smoke if your automatic transmission fluid is getting burned up by the engine. A faulty transmission vacuum modulator if fitted can cause transmission fluid getting sucked into the engine and getting burned up.
