Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Volvo 740 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 189000 miles

first the speedometer went out about 2 months ago and now the car when it warms up it will cut out when I get to a stop but when it is cold it wont. And when I get to a stop and keep my foot on the gas a little so it wont stop in traffic when I go to take off it will have a cloud of smoke when I drive off. So I have my car parked for know because I was reading the manuel. And im not sure where to start. I have had the car since it was brand new. One owner (me) and the only thing I have done is a timing belt and an alternator and battery tune up and I do my own brakes and the tune up and the alternator. But if I can get pointed in the right direction on this problem I think I can get it done. Thanks
