SOURCE: engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.

the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Focus ZTS engine whine/ noise

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.

SOURCE: Smoke comes from around engine

If you saw where the oil came out then that is the repair needed. It may not leak enough oil to get to the ground. Engine temp will make the oil leak smoke before it ever hits the ground. It may be valve cover gaskets because when they start to leak the oil gets all over the exhaust manifold and the exhaust manifold runs very hot. Rate if this helps

I have a 2005 vw caddy 2lt sdi it take ages to start and when driving black smoke comes out of the back under load. can you help?

Black smoke is fuel. Sounds like your choke is stuck on or if you have not changed your air filter in ages it could be real dirty so the fresh air won't get into your carb. I have seen filters so dirty the engine actually choked itself to *****. Is your check engine light on? You could have a bad fuel sensor or air flow sensor. That would do it as well. If you are driving with black smoke your gas mileage will be poor also.

Remove the Engine Air Filter Housing and look under it for a vacuum line that goes back to the gas tank You will get a gas smell at times because this is an open line to the gas tank and evaporation container. It's common for the rubber elbow there to split and cause issues. Check ALL vacuum lines. The increase in air into the fuel system is causing a backfire "popping sound" and a loss of power.

Last time I drove the truck, it was very shaky when idling at stop lights. Now, when I start the engine, light grey smoke shoots out of the muffler and it keeps coming out until I turn off the engine. I'm...

If this light grey smoke comes out when you start the engine, then when you drive for a while vanishes, means you have Oil leakage trough valves O-Rings! you can't do it your self... you should take it to a shop. Usuall this happens when you park for longer than 2 - 3 hours, then start engine (depending on how sever is the case).
If smoke keeps coming out all the time, means your engine needs an overwhole in a good shop

They don't have a choke. They have a mass air flow sensor. The mass air flow sensor is between the air filter and the air intake on the engine. There is an electrical plug on the sensor. You can unplug it and sometimes the engine will start. It works just about like a choke. You can completely remove it for testing only. But if you take it out then the car will start if that is the problem.

1st before you drive the car make sure the coolant level is ok,check oil. If the smoke coming out the muffler is white you could have a bad intake gasket or head gasket, check to see if there is coolant in oil, if the oil looks like chocolate milk you have an internal coolant leak. The lights are probably telling you your engine is overheating and low on coolant.
