I have a 2001 Chevy Impala, it was running just fine until the other day, after sitting for a little while it wouldn't start. It was cranking but it wouldn't catch and sounded like it wasn't getting gas in order to fire up. We put gas in it, thinking the gas gauge was wrong and it started right up. After driving it back to the house and trying to start it later it did the same thing. My dad finally got it started by pressing the gas peddle really hard, and it was blowing white smoke out of the exhaust for about 10 minutes then quit. I drove it home and it started just fine the next 2 days with no white smoke. The third day I went out to start it and it did the same thing. Any ideas?
