Hi there. It’s possible that you have a few things going on with your Nissan Quest, ranging from fuel system or ignition system component failure or even internal damage inside the motor. Typically smoke is created by excessive fluids inside the engine, like too much engine oil or coolant inside the motor. It is probably a good idea that you have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car starts then dies inspection, so they can isolate the source of this issue and recommend the right repairs.
