I have an 88 tbird 5.0 auto and the issue I am having is that I have to keep my foot on the gas or the car will at first rev up and down until it finally cuts off. Also, when I drive the car from more than one place to another I have to push the gas pedal to the floor in order for it to start and sometimes smoke comes from the exhaust and I smell gas. Any help is appreciated.

I have a 95 BMW 740i V8. When ever i srep on the gas to accelerate faster than gently the car blows alot of white smoke until some seconds after the acceleration ends.

I have a 1992 buick regal limited 3800. The car will start but fails to keep running. Sputters roughly and have to really step on the gas to get it started. It broke down the other day and after about a good half hour it started again but with some effort. When i do get it going it expels black smoke out the exhaust. Fuel pump? Injector leakage? The oil does have a gas smell to it and is runny but doesnt ignite if i hold a lighter/match to the dipstick...

I have a 2000 Volvo S80, I recently noticed the oil was a little low so I added a couple quarts. I drove a little ways and I parked my car and next time I started it, white smoke was pouring out of the exhaust. It didn't have a sweet smell, it smells more like burning oil.

Hey, i am looking to buy a car and i came across a 1989 honda accord sedan with about 160000 kms on it. When we started it up, we noticed that exhaust (or some other smoke that smells like gas) was coming out of the hood. We opened the hood but we couldn't figure out where it was coming from. What problems might this indicate and what are the average cost of the repairs needed to fix them?

It sounds like whoever rebuilt the carb hooked the choke linkage up the wrong way. The mechanism can go together wrong and still fit. One of the pieces is a counterweight to trip the linkage off and it is likely in there wrong. It is usually painted ... Cadillac Brougham
