engine problems(stop by itself)

here's my problem

I started the engine and then eared(sp?) a noise(like something blowing up ) , but not a loud one. and white smoke was coming out of the front left side. engine did not stop. its just when i saw the smoke that i turned it off.

When I started it the second time, the engine had a hard time running(like wrong timing) and stopped by itself...

I tought the problem was the timing chain, so i checked it out, but it seems in good condition.

Anyone have a clue on what it could be(head gasket)?

ps: everything that's in front of the engine; belts, covers, radiator, fan... have been removed. So I can't check if there's a fault code, right?
