Smoke out the oil cap is rings producing back pressre into the crankcase.

White smoke out the rear is mostly coolant burning. It may be condensation from sitting but a leak down test will confirm

How much will it cost for a complete repair? Would you happen to know? Its a 1994 pontiac firebird with a 5.7 liter 400 horse engine in it

We dont know what the problem is yet.

You need to confirm what is suggested before talking about pricing

The tools required are expensive for the leak down test. It is cheaper to have someone do the test than buy the tools.

Get the basics done first before proceeding to any needed repairs.

Would I do better to trade it for an s10 or a small ford ranger? My folks just eep on telling me too but I love the cars body style, it needs new pain upholstery radio and a bunch of other stuff

Your decision alone. Cant make that for you.

You need to find out the issue before doing anything.
