White smoke? Blue smoke? At start up? All the time? Warm outside? Cold outside? --- The Pope has already been chosen so that's not it...

What kind of smoke. When does it happen?

the only experience I've had with the intrepid is it gets vapor lock at higher elevations, forcing a snack break, if you've brought the snacks~

How's the coolant level? normal?

White smoke all the time could be a blown head gasket. Check your coolant bottle for level and bubbles. Does the engine over heat?

put coolant in and now iys starting to overheat just something new everyday

Loss of coolant, overheating and white smoke are all classic signs of a blown head gasket. You do not want to drive the car until it's fixed. It can be repaired. If you overheat, you may damage the engine beyond repair. --- get a compression test and estimates.

    This just started. I had to add coolant the other day. But it is really smoking from the front not out of the exhaust.
