Default Whitetish smoke when at idle

Well I got a 95 turbo 4 door and I just replaced the head gasket because i was geting white smoke after I slowed down and came to an idle position, it doesnt do it when im in the gas though. I replaced the head gasket because i thought that was the problem, also my rpm's seem to dip below 700 after i slow down... Anyone have and idea's or suggestions on what it could be or what I could do to fix this?

intake manifold gasket will show the same symptoms as a head gasket

i have the same problem, good to know i don't have to replace the headgasket. intake manifold gasket could be it! anyway that white smoke is burning coolant. but my intake manifold gasket is brand new

i just fixed my problem. intake manifold gaskets weren't torqued to spec. my haynes manual said 17 ft/lbs. hopefully this solves your problem too!
