I have a 87 VW cabriolet and it really struggles to get up hills, virtually stops when in 2nd gear and has a lot of white smelly smoke coming from the engine... What could be the cause of this?!
Check fuek filter..
The white smoke is oil- your engine is worn out, has lost compression, and is burning oil- time for a rebuild if you think it's worth it-
