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.

Blue smoke coming from exhaust


Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust indicates that oil is getting into the piston cylinder and being burned along with the gas. This could be a leaking head gasket, worn piston rings, or the wrong weight engine oil (viscosity too low). A leak down test will be needed to diagnose.
Have you checked your engine oil level?

Where is my evap located on a 1998 pontiac grand prix


which part of the evap system are you looking for. there are several components in your evap system. if you are looking for the evap canister it is located near the rear of the vehicle either on drivers side near the gas tank or just in front of the gas tank. it is a black plastic box with usually 2 vacuum lines running into it. if you are going off an evap leak engine code start with a new gas cap. a bad seal on a gas cap can cause the computer to read an evap leak. if that doesnt work then you may need to have a smoke test done at a local garage. basically they fill the evap system with smoke with a special machine then look for the smoke to appear from the leak in the system. again the evap system consists of several components that run from the engine to the gas tank. it circulates the vapor fumes from the gas back to the tank to be reburned so it does not get released into the atmosphere.

2006 pontiac grand prix is skipping while driving


It's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) beginning to fail. The sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer on the lower RH side of the engine. If you look down the accessory belt from the alternator you"ll see a wiring harness leading behind the crankshaft pulley. An easy way to diagnose a faulty sensor is to warm up the engine and carefully tap on the sensor bracket while the engine is idling. A bad sensor will cut out and the engine will stall.

Have you checked your engine coolant.
White smoke is a good sign of a blown head gasket or failed intake manifold gasket.
Check your coolant first and your oil.
Check oil and see if it seams over filled.

Smells like gas when started and engine light came on. started after a gas fill up and continued to the next fill, light went out then at the next fill again the light came on. I have check the gas cap,...


get it checked it sounds like an EVAP code will turn up and have to be fixed as gas fumes are dangerous, to find and fix this you will need the system smoked .and tested by a shop with a scanner to test all the sensors.

Power Cutting


take it back to the dealer and let them fix it. Sounds like your truck is getting too much fuel which would be a problem with injection system of the computer. Its getting too much fuel when you start which explains the smoke and when you try to rev it more gas is added and the engine can't burn all of it so it misfires. ifs its new, tell the dealer and let it be their problem.
