Have you tested alternator and wiring to battery. Sounds like a purge valve also if not starting after gassing up. Resolve the electrical first then the emissions issue.

Yes the battery issues started about 2 weeks later. I will have the codes read again when I had them read at orileys and Midas they both gas cap Midas even reset my check engine light for me and I bought a new gas cap but was not the problem. I will get back to you with codes

Sounds like coolant getting into the cylinders from the white smoke. Does it have a sweet smell from the exhaust?
