Exhaust that smells like coolant is a sign of a blown head gasket.
Keep an eye on the coolant level and see how much it's losing. And the oil level to make sure that there isn't a milky substance in the oil.

Yea a quick way to see if head gaskets are blown is check coolant resolver. If it's milky color. You have oil mixing in the cooling system. If not. Drain some oil and see if coolant is flowing with the oil. That would mean coolant is leaking in the engine which is worse. Happened on a hummer we were working on. I got lucky with my old mustang. Oil was just in the coolant

White means coolant or water. Blue means oil. Black means fuel. Mine smoked white for a good few weeks after I ran seafoam through it and always smokes white after I change the transmission fluid.

I would just give it a week or two and see if it goes away. If it smells like coolant then it most definitely is a head gasket leak. Might not have blown just yet but could just be leaking.

Pancake. White can also be transmission oil. Happened to me. Leaking out the back transmission to the exhaust. Every time I got off te high way white smoke would come out from under the car
