Question about 1999 Kia Sportage
Not sure what you are describing really, is it possible you can elaborate? After you filled up this happened? The engine started cutting back? Did you put diesel instead of gas? A common mistake! This will make the vehicle putt putt if it even starts and will have no power what-so-ever! Will just sit there and putt putt. A plugged catalytic converter will get red hot and sometimes hiss if there is any leak you your exhaust and the car will overheat and have a loss of power and the hotter it gets the more the power loss will be until it overheats the head and warps it or blows a head-gasket.
If that is smoke from a fuel leak then this is dangerous of explosion.
If you had a service guy check your oil when you filled up, he left the oil filler cap off and it's spraying all over the exhaust and engine and again dangerous of fire. You must carefully determine what is leaking to cause this smoke, it's either an exhaust leak, an antifreeze (coolant) leak or from the power steering or transmission line or brake line. One thing to find a small leak is to place a piece of cardboard under the engine to see what and where anything is dripping.
