Hello there. You have a few different faults going on with your 2009 Pontiac GXP. If the car is hard to start the most common causes are the fuel pump, battery, starter, battery cable, fuel pump relay, ignition switch, or wiring harness fault. The smoke from under the hood is most likely due to oil leak or exhaust leaks.
