I have just changed the timing belt. The car did jump time about 4 notches, now I have some smoke coming from the exhaust. The car is cranking great and sounding smoother. I also just had a muffler system changed on the car and we deleted the catalytic converter do you think this could cause the smoke?
Do you
have the same problem?

Well I finally realized what I done. When putting the wires on the distributor I messed up and went clockwise instead of counter clockwise. She is now purring like a kitten. This car has been a headache for the parts but it is a good car. Better than when I dred getting into my wifes 99 dodge intrepid. The motors for those things are not cheap. A used one is 2200 that is the cheapest I am not sure what to do with that car. I think it is the rings. It is throwing alot of gray smoke. And the engine light is on

A blue smoke indicates oil burning-rings/valve guides&seals/worn cyclinders-excessive crankcase pressure.

Try checking the fuel system-Gray smoke? And have the code pull
