    My SUV has been emitting a white smoke from time to time from the exhaust... It's not really constant, but it's really noticeable when it's sitting at an idle.

    What's wrong with it now? Head gasket leaking maybe? It is going through oil faster than it should...

    hmmmm .... your specific SUV has a nasty habit of leaking flux from the capacitor. the white smoke is the muffler bearing burning out its cooling fluid. might check the coolant fins on the the catalytic converter. and invest in osme titanium tire beads, yours will wear out as they are only 8620 gear steel.

    although the valve seal lubricant might be cycling too much. change it out and add some water to the battery.

    the rotator shaft in the starter might have too much runout .... tighten down the chin nuts an extra in lb to get the backlash back in spec.

    that should fix you right up.
