Is it loosing coolant white smoke is usually antifreeze entering the combustion chamber might be head gasket gone or on way out unfortunately, see if there is any bubbling in the header tank when engine is running, a garage could do a pressure test for you to check the head gasket and also a sniff test on the coolant header tank to see if exhaust gases are entering the coolant system.

I don't know about the turbo. On a diesel engine it sounds like the EGR getting clogged, but yours is a 2002 model, I don't know if they were fitted with EGR.
