1984 honda big red smoking out the exhaust littel oil coming out tho also it has the wrong carb on it the carb come off a honda atc 200x

If it is black smoke, it could be running rich and the correct carb will fix that. If it is blue smoke, then it is burning oil.

I changed the turbo now white smoke coming out of my exhaust

This seems to be a symptom of a blown head gasket.
White exhaust smoke is an indication of water / coolant in the exhaust. The car running sluggish and using lots of fuel can be caused by compression loss.

Look at the coolant level color and smell (with cold engine - don't open the high pressure reservoir with engine hot as hot coolant may spray you in the face). If you have a blown gasket, the coolant color may become brownish and it may smell bad or the level will get lower even if you have just refilled the cooling system.

What you can also check for is bubbles in the reservoir. With engine cold, remove the reservoir cap. Start the engine. Try to rev the engine (or have someone do it) and observe if there are bubbles in the reservoir tank. If you see lots of bubbles, you have a blown gasket.

Engine only runs with choke on. Blue smoke comes out and engine runs rough or not at all

sounds like you have a bad Ring on the Piston or a blown head possibly. Blue smoke means Oil is getting into the combustion chamber. Full choke means you have to give this 'broken' engine a lot of gas to compensate for it's problem.
Do you change the oil at least once a year? Filthy oil or a lack of oil will kill an engine

Daughter has a 1997 Hyundai Elantra that she bought used, it has over 200,000 miles. Runs sluggish and has no power when you attempt to accelerate. Have replaced plugs, wires, ignition coil, catalytic...

200K is a lot of miles. I would think that the rings might not be in very good shape.

Take the oil filler cap off. Stand to the side of the vehicle. Put the car in gear push hard on the brakes, and push on the accelerator to ask a lot of power from the engine. If you get exhaust gas coming out of the oil filling hole, your piston rings are history.

See if that “stuck” code is back, and find out what the code is saying.

I had a 96 Hyundai that got to the point that no acceleration was possible. As it turned out, there were two catalytic converters, one in a coffee can shaped section of the exhaust manifold, and one a lot farther down the tail pipe. It turns out that the face of the first converter had actually melted from the exhaust heat, and the face had seeped over the whole front of that converter, blocking any chance for exhaust to flow through it. My first clue was when I disconnected the exhaust pipe from the manifold, then started the car. There was no loud exhaust noise! (I thought I had lost my mind!) I don't actually think you have this problem, because resetting a code cannot overcome that kind of problem.

Having the exhaust gas analyzed while the engine is under a load might reveal something meaningful.

I have a lot of black smoke coming out of exhaust pipe and vehicle is running sluggish.

Get your oil changed and have them use the engine cleaner. It sounds like you have a deposit built up your engline, meanwhile add some STP to your fuel tank next time you fuel up.

Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.

My first thoughts are that you have a head gasket or intake manifold gasket failure. This is why you have the white smoke. If you run it too long, your catalytic converter will be destroyed. Check for coolant in your oil too.

My mercedes 1994 C220 just started smoking a lot and the auto is slipping, could this be a diaphragm problem.

No it sounds like you have a transmission leak, oil will be going onto the exhaust causing the smoke and lack of oil will cause the trans will slip.
