Sounds like you have a blown head gasket or blown head. Are you sure that it's not coolant? While your car is on, put a piece of cardboard against the exhaust, not for long though, especially if your car is smoking, and see if there is wetness on it. If so, I would say blown head gasket or head, FOR SURE! Immediately bring your car in. Has your car at all been overheating?
There is a coolant leak somewhere. Youll need to press test coolant sys to find it.Did you drive long when it overheated? The cyl heads will be damaged if drivin when overheating so hopefuly you didnt.
If you are trying to get the car to start easier you still may be venting through the gas line or gas cap. The new fuel line may solve the problem. What you still can do is replace the gas cap.
Both Autozone and O'reilly will test your car free. The system on an 87 model may not generate a trouble code on your dash for the problem you have. But the test gauge may show it.
If the car has zip the fuel pump may be okay. If the car fast idles briefly when cold, the cold start system is working. If the car does not idle up, the cold start system is not resetting.
I have an auntomatic 87 camry that just had that problem. I thought it was my fuel pump but it ended up being my ignition coil. It cost a lill over 400 to fix, but I think I got a little screwed. The part is actually only a lill over one hundred dollars. Hope this helps!
