I bought an escort cab the other day and it ran like a bag of spuds i have changed the plugs and that has sorted the problem but the car still smokes alot when i put my foot down and it doesn't have as much power as it should
A few things if it hasnt started in a while it will probablyt smoke..also coilpacks are notourious in going in fords also if you see white smoke it usually means water and especially if you smell antifreezecoming out of the tail pipe could also mean youhave a blown headgasket or cracked head/block another way you can tell if gasket /head/block is blown check oil and see if there any water in the oil it will be a nasty greenish color usually denotes a blown head gasket-z

defective catalytic convertor. It may be plugged up.Make sure ALL the exhaust line from intake manifold(at engine block) to final exhaust pipe are not clogged up.You have reverse exhaust pressure going back towards engine manifold.
Regarding 2001 audi a6 quattro 2.7t....i was driving to work the car was fine then white smoke starting coming from under the hood and tail pipe. i stopped veilce and alot of oil was dripping from front of car. I towed it home and i looked under the hood and there was oil from valve cover gasket. i let the car sit for a few days, had it running again for a good hour and no white smoke was coming out. I removed the valve cover and gaskets are all bad. i want to know can the valve cover gasket leak cause the white smoke to come from exhaust pipe?
Unfortunately, it sounds like a head gasket. If it only does it when you start it, it is probably leaking antifreeze into the cylinders slowly, and as the engine heats up it will close the gap. If this is the problem it is only a matter of time before the head gasket goes completely and the engine will need to be repaired.
The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect. Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.
Yes these optispark systems had all sorts of problems in wet weather most of the time you could replace the cap portion and that would solve it but most of the time I would replace the whole thing including new plug wires, coil wire,and spark plugs .Due to the fact that you have to remove water pump to access opti spark
