You seem to be running RICH ,that's the white smoke. It sounds like you may have a bad MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR. Is the check engine light on? Get some one with a scanner to check the code or codes. GOOD LUCK FIEND.

check to make sure #5 spark plug wire isn't bad,make sure you have not wired it wrong from changing plugs. You should purchase a chilton manual if you haven't already

I had a Mazda 626 with a similar problem, the car seemed to 'shut down' with no warning, even at highway speeds, as if I just turned the ignition key to 'Off'; After trying to fix it unsuccessfully by replacing several electrical parts, the problem was found to be a defective ignition switch, it was replaced and the problem went away.

Take the vehicle to Auto Zone or another parts store that will read the engine fault code from the ECM for you. Most will do it for free. Depending on how long it has been since you replaced the plugs and wires on your vehicle you may have a bad spark plug or plug wire that is causing the problem. Easy enough to fix if you don't have to pull the air intake assembly to change the back 3 plugs. If you do have to pull this you should get a chiltons repair manual so you ahve instructions on how to remove and replace the intake assembly.

most of the time that is the clutch causing it to do that. trying going up a hill again in frist and push the gas to the floor if the rpm rev up real high like the truck is in neutral then you need a new clutch. try the engine restore it comes in a sliver can your local auto store will have it. it is about $6 a can. but other than that you might just have to rebuild the motor. hope this helps
