Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

Your filter clogged is likely to blame for the exhaust smoke because it is not getting enough air. Also this aftermarket air filter if it one that requires oil. The oil is likely damaging the MAF sensor effecting its reading. Smoke from under the hood is a sign of exhaust system leaks, and turbo soot issues not allowing the vanes to move correct thus blowing air backwards out the intake.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not for an info request.

Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.

Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed.

I don't use oil on the fresh air cleaner

Why does it run so bad and no power till I drive for 10 miles or so
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Many things can cause low power. What kind of tools do you have for testing. We need to check the compression, monitor sensors with a scan tool, check the fuel pressure.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have access to an altell scaner
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Are there any codes?

What is the ICP pressure while running poor at idle and when running good at idle?

Same test on the MAP reading?

Same test on the boost pressure?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
