Help with possible transmission issue?

Hey guys. I have a 96 Accord v6 that I've been working on. Recently, after replacing the power steering pressure line, I've been having a weird problem. Whenever I put it in reverse, the engine revs and shoots the car back while billowing white smoke from the exhaust. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Thank you.

White smoke is probably coolant burning; I'm guessing the engine revving hard isn't helping that. Is it an automatic or a manual transmission? Sounds like your car is slipping from whatever gear it is in, into reverse. The high revs are from it being in "neutral" between gear and then suddenly reverse kicking in makes the car jolt backwards.

Doesn't sound good in any case, white smoke and the sudden movement. Might be time to take it to a shop?
