was the smoke comming out of the exhaust or the actual hood? and if it was comming out of the exhaust was the smoke blue by anychance? if so then you are burning oil in the combustion chamber and you would need new piston rings. As for the 2 cylinders you probly have alot of carbon buildup in the combustion chamber and its probly not getting the fuel it needs to run!
