A couple of days ago my truck didn't want to start which was very unusual. I had to start it and then press on the gas to idle the truck at a higher rpm. After a bit it finally idled on it's own. It seemed to be running kind of rough. My daughter had put some cheaper gas in it and I thought that may have been the problem. So I got some fuel line cleaner and filled it up with some good gas. Right after doing that it seemed to be running better but later that day it started running rough again, the check engine light came on and smoke started coming out of one of the air vents. I did not have the air or blower on. The smoke didn't seem to have a smell. Later that night I didn't feel so well. The next morning (having to rev the rpm slightly again to get it to start and idle on it's own) I drove it to work (1/2 mile) and the check engine light came on, the smoke started coming out of the vent and once again I started to not feel well. So I drove it home and parked it. I LOVE my truck and have no idea where to start with fixing it. Being a female with some knowledge of autos - I still hate to go to a repair shop without having some idea as to what the problem is, so I don't get told things need to be fixed that actually don't. Thank you for your advice.
