Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I stopped at the store turned off my car. When I got back in it would not start kept
saying ESP fault then when it finally cranked it ran really rough. I tried to drive and white
smoke poured from the tailpipe. What could this be and what can I do? Also key is now
stuck in ignition window is down no power to roll it back up.

Check fuse for electric..... Check gas tank for water due to white smoke or spark plugs due to misfire causing rough vibration engine shake/white smoke.... Check sensor tricky sometimes.... But I'm pretty sure its spark plugs or the wire harness.... Get new battery try turn steering wheel Left/right depending on loose side then turn key N try to pull it out...

Battery module in the trunk could cause key to stick and no power. Check for water intrusion into trunk that could have caused battery module to short out.
