Doesn't have to show film yet. The white smoke is a dead giveaway that your head gasket went out.


A blown head gasket will show water in the oil if there is a gasket leak between a coolant line and the oil. This isn't your case. You have a coolant leak into at least one cylinder and the white smoke is evaporated coolant venting out the exhaust.
