hope that it isn't the head gasket (white smoke from oil or water ending up in cylinders?)-check water for bubling, and oil spending perhaps, could maybe be faulty lambda probe(exhaust)/air mass probe(intake) or broken exhaust/intake gasket causing wrong mixture(more fuel) - the car can spend much more fuel as normal, can also be the spark timing too late maybe.high pitch mechanical clanking at higher rpm can be heard from the valves - perhaps timing belt?. if it is some kind of electrical fail you are lucky :)
Just a thought! There is a provision where when fuel pressure drops the ignition is shut off. This is to prevent pumping when the fuel line is compromised. Monitor fuel pressure to see if it drops during normal operation.
turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.
if the battery voltage gets low the computer will lose its memory...the idle air control is not ure what to do.. drive the vehicle for a while ...you may have to 2 foot it but eventually it should idle
