When I drive theres alot of smoke coming out of exhaust pipe. I hooked up the computer scanner n it said the spark plugs needed to be changed. I did that still smoking. Im thinking it might be the head gasket?

Do you
have the same problem?

The computer didn't tell you to change spark plugs. That's not what it does. What is the exact code number/s being set?
What color is the smoke and when is it the worst?

Many auto parts stores will read them for free. We need the exact code numbers.
