You have damaged the engine, the smoke is from burning coolant in the engine due to a blown leaking cylinder head gasket or gaskets. Do not drive this or you will completely destroy the engine.

Burning plastic smell and white smoke inside car


it will be burnt wire and around the ignition switch
burnt wires are obvious but be smart
only an accredited auto electrician should be used to locate the wire/s so don't let your boyfriend start or it will cost more in the long term and will still not be fixed

"Hug" white smoke sounds bad. The dealer sold you a lemon. Burning oil is blue/black meaning bad pistons rings or valves. White smoke could be coolant leaking into the cylinders through a cracked head and/or head gasket.
Check you local laws concerning your warranty for used cars and try to return it to the dealer/scammer.

ALOT OF SMOKE FROM THE EXHAUST


Blue smoke is oil and means you have internal engine damage.
White smoke with a sweet smell means you have a blown head gasket (check antifreeze, if it's low that is another sign)
White smoke with no real smell is water in the gas tank. Grab some water remover.
Black smoke is a sign your burning to much gas, you need a tune up.
