I don't know what the problem is without knowing what codes have been set. Have the codes read and post them here and we will do our best to help. What color smoke?

White , like in the winter time when you let the car warm , that color smoke and I will have it looked at tomorrow


White is coolant, so maybe a headgasket. Hope you got a warranty.
