Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Car starts and has a hesitation in it when i push the gas it will stall out and has white smoke coming from exhaust what is causing this check engine light is showing no codes ?????
Check the coolant level, if it is low or empty chances are a blown head gasket. A leak in the head will draw the anti freeze into the cylinders and burn

The blue smoke and oil consumption is because of the bad rings. They are allowing oil to get by into the cylinders and it's being burned with the gas. If you don't want to put the money into an engine rebuild, you can try one of the many additives available at auto parts stores that claim to help restore compression and reduce oil burning in worn or high-mileage engines.

To my knowledge, all Hondas in the U.S. use timing belts.
The white smoke is indicative of a head gasket problem. Coolant is likely getting into your oil.
Don't wait too long to have this checked out. You could destroy your engine.

A plugged catalytic converter can set codes, but I think we need to concentrate on smoke right now. That's not saying that the converter wasn't a partial, or the cause of the white smoke. Has your oil level or coolant level been going down, or up recently, since this all started ?
You say he cleaned all the insides of the catalytic converter out, so there is no blockage there now, correct? Did you erase the code when you replaced the oxygen sensor, and it came back again? Finally, if you have white smoke rolling out your exhaust, it is usually caused by oil or coolant consumption getting into the cylinder, which could also be causing oxygen sensor to foul up & cause a code. I'd concentrate on finding the cause of the white smoke first. Cooling system pressure test, engine compression check should tell you , but so should consumption of oil or coolant increase. If the problem originated at the converter (plugged) it may have caused a blown head gasket for one thing. I'll wait for your reply.

SOURCE: car stalling
this could be many things, you could have dirty fuel injectors, in which you just buy some fuel injecter cleaner. Or it could be something like an o2 sensor, because o2 sensors "read" the exhaust coming out of your car and adjust fuel/air mixture as necessary. If its bad then it will send mixed signals, making the car sputter and hesitate when you push the gas. But my guess would be dirty fuel injectors.
Good luck with your car.

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.
