    What year is the vehicle? How many miles? Are there any modifications done? Do you have any drive ability problems associated with this "white smoke" such as rough idle, power loss, CEL illuminated etc...??? Are you sure you only see it when your changing gears? Do you see the smoke both when the car is cold and up at operating temperature?

    White smoke could be the coolant. Have you checked that?

    In order of severity, steam from the outside environment due to water getting onto something hot (harmless), coolant (needs to be addressed; find the leak and fix it), or oil (again, find/fix).

    The likelihood IMO of another fluid generating the issue is low.

    Figure out whether it's coolant or oil, and the source, and fix it.
