Smoke from engine bay

Any advice for a DIY would be appreciated.

Several years ago I noticed on occasion (usually after drives of more than 500 miles) that smoke would pour out from the engine bay through the ventilation system. Now I've had this problem checked out, and mechanics couldn't help me out at all.

Now, it seems to happen with an increasing regularity. Almost every time I drive my car I get white smoke pouring out from under the hood or coming through the ventilation system. If y'all have any ideas I would appreciate it very much. I'm trying to do most of the work myself. Eventually I know that I'll have to take it to a mechanic. But any and all help is appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks. I did some research after you suggested that. It makes perfect sense now.
