You may want to check on the idling of the car. See if adjusting it on the idle control valve or cleaning it would help. Normally this would be the case in any gear, Drive or Reverse. If it is only on drive check on the tranny and the gear valve if it needs cleaning. Or it may be as simple as having the oil of the transmission changed.

Truck Not Starting


Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

Smoke blowing out of muffler and car shakes


The color of the smoke means a lot here.
Black Smoke is from car running too rich.
Blue smoke is burning oil.
White smoke is generally steam in gas engines or can be unburned fuel in a diesel.

From your description this is often from a blown head gasket with water getting in the cylinder so the one cylinder doesnt fire properly which causes the shake. BUT it could also be a bad plug or wire causing the shake and the excess fuel causing the smoke.
If this car were in my shop the first thing I would do is pull the plugs and check their condition. This will tell me the exact nature of the problem. If I was still in doubt I would do a compression check on all cylinders with close attention on any whose plugs looked different.
You can bet this is a bad problem and the vehicle should not be driven..

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???


You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors
