    It's obd1 ... But we don't have a cel anymore we checked all sensors and all vacuums lines .. Like it idles great but once you start driving unless your always in high rpm it wants to bog out Also someone told us head gasket is gone because if dose have white smoke and spark plugs have white tips but I don't think it's the head fasket...

    A little bit of white smoke on start-up when it's cold out is ok, but it's not normal if it's doing it all the time. That means water is getting in to the engine somewhere. That is a classic sign of a blown head gasket or a crack in the block or head somewhere.

    Change the oil. If it looks like hot chocolate then it's probably a blown head gasket...
