Hello. The smoke you are seeing is likely from some form of leak dripping onto the hot engine. The leak is likely associated with the shaking and poor engine performance. The check engine light in this situation is a good thing. This means the computer has detected errors and the information should be used for diagnosis. The smoke can be from coolant, oil, power steering fluid, excessive fuel, or maybe even transmission fluid if you have a cooler. The first thing to do is have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic troubleshooting codes. You may also want to start with finding out what fluid is causing the smoke. You should gather some more information on the codes and fluid, and then proceed with diagnostics from there.
