Black smoke

Black exhaust smoke means the engine is burning too much fuel. The first think you should check is your air-filter and other intake components like sensors, fuel injectors and the fuel-pressure regulator. Other reasons could be a clogged fuel return line. Black smoke is usually the easiest issue to diagnose and fix, but burning unnecessary fuel will definitely affect your fuel economy, so don't think of avoiding this one to save money, it won't work.
Any smoke coming from your car's exhaust pipe is a sign that your car is in distress. Pay attention to what it needs to ensure more miles for your vehicle.

Why is there blue smoke coming from the exhaust, worse when accelerating and also very sluggish on hills

Usually this is oil burning. The oil rings on the pistons are often at fault if performance is affected. If the oil seals on the valves were the problem, you would get blue smoke with little or no affect on performance until the sparkplugs fouled.

There are some newer additives on the market which claim to chemically replate the cylinder surfaces. Be sure to have clean oil and filter at the start of treatment for these products. The more expensive products may work.

Backfiring when starting, sputtering, light white smoke out tailpipe, fluid out the tailpipe, check engine light is blinking.

When the check engine light is on, the light is telling the driver the computer has found a problem that may affect performance or emissions. You should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
The smoke and fluid could be coolant or trans fluid being burned thru the cylinders.

White smoke at exhoust and puch water out of the radiator

Blown head gasket or cracked head. I'll guess this happened after overheating the engine. The compression of the affected cylinder will blow coolant out of the radiator and coolant in the cylinder burning shows up as white smoke in the exhaust.12_24_2012_1_46_50_pm.png

My 95 neon smokes alot at stop an go when hot :rings ? valve guide or egr?dose not burn that much oil.

ii suggest to look on the valve guide's valve seal.
the smoke (white smoke) from tail end means eating up so much oil.
rings,if you mean piston rings, it's internal and affect the entire performance of the engine.
egr valve - it's only re-directing exhaust gas to the cylinder and be burn again.

Smoke when start moving.2.5 crdi 2006 model

if it smokes when you start moving , and then clears the first thing to do is change the air filter, even if it looks clean.
i would not even start looking for other causes until this has been done.
do not run the car without an air filter to test it as this will affect the airflow and can cause problems on its own. filters are very cheap and readily available. the slightest dirt on an air filter can reduce the air flow through it and while it may not appear dirty, it can affect airflow enough to result in a rich fuel mix being burnt under power, resulting in smoke. as you get up to speed and ease up on the throttle, not as much air is needed and enough can frow through the filter giving the correct fuel mix and less smoke.

if this does not work please feel free to ask again but 99 times out of 100 a new air filter will cure smoke when pulling away in a fairly new car.

White smoke drivers side exhaust

Dense white smoke usually means coolant is getting into the cylinders -- usually a head gasket. You're fortunate if you have dual exhausts and are only getting the white smoke from driver's side. You know which head gasket to check/change. Unless the leak is minor, you can usually determine which cylinders are affected by doing a compression check.
