White smoke is water, suggesting a leaking head gasket or cracked head. Bluish smoke is oil which is usually found in high mileage engines. Engine wear increases the tolerances and allows oil to pass by the rings into the combustion chamber. Broken piston rings could also allow this to happen. There is also a possibility that leaking valves could be the source, if they are not seating properly.
All of these could create a hard start problem, and should be looked at soon because they will keep getting worse. Hope this helps.

How much does it cost 2 have a clutch replaced on a citreon xsara

Before you race out and replace the clutch which will not be cheap for your car have a good look at the slave cylinder for leaks . Check and bleed the clutch system and have the clutch m/cyl checked. Crunching gears means the clutch system is not disengaging properly

I need to know how to replace the fuel pump on my 1998 ford ranger supercab the easiest way

there is only 1 fuel pump, and it is in the tank. However, it is much easier to remove the bed to change as there are only like 4 or 6 bed bolts to take out, then disconnect the tail lights and have a friend help slide it off. It is alot easier, and then you dont have to struggle on your back to try and get the tank back into place, or fight with the straps either.
