Why does my 1998 infinity q45 kills after idling for about 20 minutes, it will restart but blows out black smoke?

Black smoke means that it has gotten too much fuel from the intake. That is a sign that either the timing or valves are having issues. It could also be that the crank sensor is failing. The sensor controls the pulses to the ignition. There is also a cam sensor that might be having issues. It is curious that it is happening at idle. One of the causes could be heat.

1989 f250 Ive had to fill up front tank everyday only driving little over 100 miles (highway)

Check for black smoke out of the tail-pipe when the engine is revved. Black smoke means unburned fuel. The most likely culprit is a plugged air filter/air intake. A plugged exhaust, especially the catalytic convertor will kill your fuel economy and power. It may also be in need of a good tune-up (spark plugs, filters, ignition wires, distributor cap/rotor). Also check tire pressures and make sure that you don't have any seized brakes.

2009 honda odyssey touring noise and smoke from the front wall of the engine compartment also killing battery's charge.

GO TO A TRUSTED SHOP BEFORE THE VEHICLE CATCHES ON FIRE!!! On that note it is a 2009, are you out of your warranty period? Have a shop check for a tsb or technical service bulletin or a recall. On that note, you have provided a very vague explanation and it could be anything from simple to dangerous.

valve seals allowing oil into cylinders

and eventualy kill it. no quick cheap fix there sorry

Too much smoke eventhough that i have change the piston ring already

Before you changed the rings did you check the clearence between the pistons and the cylinder walls ? And if you didnt check the gap spacing of the rings it could be to wide also .The old school rule on endgap is 3 to 4 thousands of an inch ber inch of could also have bad valve guide seals.There are many things that can cause the smoke

The Symptoms tell me it is a head gasket. A leaky or bad head gasket would cause all of the problems that you mentioned.

Burning water causes White Smoke, Burning Oil causes Black Smoke. The oil and water are mixing with the gas in the cylinders and causing it to run bad. Pull out the dipstick and look at the oil on it. Does it look like good oil? Or does it look watery and or foamy or grey colored. Open up the radiator and look inside, do you see oil?

This seems almost text book to me... I would have someone local to you to have a look at it to be sure.

White smoke from air vents

Could be an incorrect refrigerant charge or defective pressure switch causing the evaporator to freeze and the air flow over it is causing the ice to melt and the resulting white smoke is condensation
