What does it smell like? If it smells like rotten eggs that is a tell-tale sign that your catalytic convertor is bad.

Mitsubisihi magna 1999 v6 has pettrol steaming from exhaust and bad fuel smelling vapour comes out of the exhaust

if its actually raw fuel then the car is running very rich(too much fuel). the bad fuel vapour smell is also an indication of over fuelling.

93 camry overheats, white exhaust, no heat

you most likely have a blown head gasket on the exhaust side of the gasket where the water goes into the cylinder and not the oil! as far as no heat, have you checked your water level? if the head gasket is blown and the water is going out the exhaust then the water level would be low which would cause the car to not produce heat

My v6 94 Camry is sputtering.

Poor quality fuel could certainly be the cause of this. Adulterated fuel can have a variety of substances in it, from water to diesel.
If it only started to do this after you last filled with the suspect fuel, have it drained before it causes damage.
Camrys will often leak oil onto the exhaust, from several spots,and that causes a hot smell. I think it may be unrelated to the sputtering.

Exhaust fumes 98 camry 4 cl coming into the car.

This could be caused by a hole in the exhaust system, or by a blockage, such as the catalytic converter or the muffler having collapsed inside.

It is dangerous, get it checked out if you do not see a cause.

Runs rough, exhaust smells like gas,

Check everything, you need to cover as much as possible to narrow your search down. Without a good scan-tool you will have to do your best to find the problem. When was the last Complete tune-up? Is the air-filter clogged? Are the spark-plugs firing correctly (a blueish/white ark) a dull yellow/orange ark is weak and could be the result of a bad coil and/or wiring.
If the engine has problems like bad valves or incorrect timing. This can cause a gas in the exhaust situation.
If the back pressure inside the exhaust is too high this can do it too, CAT could be clogged.

Rotten egg smell after new plugs and wires seems to miss now

did he gap the plugs properly? sulfur smell comes from excess fuel being dumped into the exhaust (catalytic converter). Could be the coil, or improperly gapped plugs. If the wires were out of order, there would be a misfire.
