SOURCE: Error Codes
These may have been set by the battery change and are what GM calls phamtom codes, clear the codes with the following.
Try this and see if the codes go away.
1. Re-enter diagnostics via the climate control panel and after all the codes appear you will see .7.0
2. Simultaneously push and hold the OFF and HI (^) buttons on the climate control panel until you see E.0.0 and release both buttons.
3. Turn ignition key OFF, Wait 15 seconds and re-enter diagnostics and see if the codes reappear. If they do NOT reappear, You are good to go.
After you have done this try starting the engine and see what codes re-appear, also run and OBD 2 test of the system at the diagnostic connector, this will give P codes that we are better able to find definitions for, the E codes are unique to just a few GM cars.

hi... it all depends on the colour of the smoke... usualy blueish smoke will mean it is oil burning and your piston rings may be getting worn if it is black then it might be running too rich etc.. a little bit of water is fine infact usualy it is a good sign that your engine is not running rich or lean so it is pointing towards oil seals... also if it was running rich it would probably do it more when it was cold

Testimonial: "Thanx lukewooly. The digital does does say check oil level now that I think about it.Very helpful. Don't wanna spend more than the car is worth."
If your loosing coolant when it cools off and draws it out of the resevoir,you know it is water and then maybe white smoke.
You could warm it up without the rad cap and look for bubbles. It will push out air and coolant anyway,so that will be a difficult test.
Dual exhaust issues,should be common to both banks. I would go with coolant and intake gaskets first,may have a crossover in manifold,so you get both pipes effected.

The error is indicating that the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is out of the normal range with respect to the Idle Speed Control (ISC). Try something really simple and inexpensive first by removing the air ducting between the air filter box and the throttle body. Clean the throttle body interior and throttle plate with a cloth sprayed with WD40. Turn the throttle plate by pushing it at the top with your fingers and clean the throttle throat behind the plate as best you can. Reassemble the ducting and ensure that there are no air leaks at the junctions and no splits. Turn the key to position 2 (engine not running) and depress the accelerator pedal to the floor and then back up again. Start the car and nine times out of ten that should fix it. The TPS measures the opening angle of the throttle plate. The TPS is device consisting of a circular carbon track with a slider, corresponding to the throttle plate, sweeping along it. It as three wires to it, two to provide the 0 to 5 volt range along the length of the carbon track and the third to measure the voltage at the contact point of the slider. To check the TPS measure the voltage of the middle pin of the connector when the ignition is at position 2 (engine off) as you push the throttle plate open and closed by pressing on the accelerator pedal. The voltage should alter in a smooth continuous way. Any drop outs of signal indicate a worn carbon track and the TPS should be replaced.

i think you have a water leak maybe the head gasket is going bad any way gasoline produces water and is normal with cold weather.
