Default 1997 Legacy GT White smoke

So, i aquired a 1997 Subary Legacy 2.5 GT From my late fater in law. It runs well but has high miles.

He was a well respected Subaru Mechanic in town and this was his DD.

However, now that it's in my care it got a little attention. I removed the police scanners and GPS Systems from it so I can sell it. When i drove it the other day to get gas i noticed a little white smoke comming from under the car. I looked and saw white smoke coming from the top of one of, what i believe, is the exhaust manifold.

It's wrapped in heat sheild so i can't tell if there's some form of fluid under the heat sheild. I jacked the car up yesterday and let it get hot till it smoked again and I just can't tell any reason it would be doing that.

Any ideas?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like coolant is dripping down, and when the exhaust gets hot it boils off the coolant.
