Hi
light blue smoke would suggest a small amount of oil being burnt in the cylinder. could be a valve stem seal, or a faulty oil control ring on a piston.

grey/ black smoke would suggest excess fuel, usually due to a clogged air filter.

white smoke would suggest water being burnt in the cylinder from a blown heat gasket. this would usually smell slightly sweet and sugary from the antifreeze/summer coolant in the water.

any smoke from the tailpipe should be checked as the emissions could be out of limits as well.

check the spark plugs one at a time.
blackened dry plugs would suggest excess fuel.
black and oily plugs would suggest oil in that piston.
it should give you an idea of where to start looking for the fault.

Would not gaping the spark plugs properly cause fuel to come out of the tailpipe?


Possible, but it would be a rough engine spin.
Check the fuel level in the carb, or the fuel pressure from the pump as well.

White smoke out tailpipe car has 17300.00 miles


White smoke is coolant being burnt in the cylinder,
most likely from a failed head gasket

I would think a 1989 is too old to fix
Cost more than the car is worth

Any oil useage between oil changes every
say 3000 to 4500 miles is too much,engine is
worn

Greyish bluesmoke from exaust at stop.


This indicates you are burning oil in the car somehow, and is usually a sign of ring damage or valve damage in teh engine. Did you run the engine low on oil by accident or unintentionally? This would cause cylinder wal scarring or burn pistons that would cause this issue. Pay attention to oil level and if you live in a state with emissions inspection you will need to fix sooner or later. This can also cause premature failure of the catalytic converter.

Starts and runs but barely accelerates-check engine light on & leveling light on


Catalytic convertor in the exhasut system is restricting flow.This can be checked very simply.Start the vehicle and have a helper rev the engine as much as possible.Walk back to the exhaust pipe,and put your hand close to the pipe.If barely any air is coming out of the tailpipe,the exhaust is severely restricted.If you are not sure exactly how much air SHOULD be coming from the tailpipe,do this procedure on a couple of properly running vehicles to get an idea or a comparison/baseline.Good luck and remember to rate this solution..
