Welcome to the forum, uhnexo -

Are you sure it was the old cam plate that was leaking?

Did you replace it with an aftermarket plate?

Did you follow the installation instructions carefully?

Did you lightly oil the "O" ring before bolting on the plate?

Did you use some sort of sealant?

Did you clean up all the old leaked oil off the exhaust pieces?

Talk to us.

White smoke coming out from where?

What does the "smoke" smell like?

Figure out where the coolant is getting into the combustion chamber and fix it. I do not know all the areas where this can happen on a FA20 but most likely culprit on most engines is the head gasket.

Why not bring it into a shop to have them pressure test your cooling system? This will tell you if there's a leak externally or internally.

I see you're in Vegas, but it is worth mentioning that the nights are getting cooler. What have the temperatures been when you're seeing this? Could be normal operation steam if you're seeing temps at or below 50f.

I suggest you take your car into an automotive shop and ask them to fix it.

Check your oil and see if it looks milky. If it does, coolant is getting in there. Like the guy above stated, head gasket.

Washer fluid? Completely ran out? The "smoke" isn't steam from a leaky washer fluid canister? Seems pretty straightforward doesn't it?
