Default crankcase smoke

My car begins to put out white smoke out of the crankcase and exhaust. after the car warms up, it begins to put out white smoke. It does not happen when the car is cold or when it first starts. I took the intake pipes, oil filler, and valve covers off before this happened and had them powdercoated. when I put them back on this problem occured. The car is leaking power steering fluid and there are bubbles in the power steering resovior. I dont know if they are connected or if the vaccum line is mixed, or even if this could happen. The car has never over heated so I do not think its a head gasket, plus it wasnt happening before I took the intake off. any Ideas.....Thanks, Ryan

White smoke is generally caused by condensed fuel particles, but you said it only occurs after the engine warms up which is usually when your oil will be a lot thinner. So it should have something to do with the oil getting somewhere it shouldn't be. Your power steering with have nothing to do with this.
