When accelerating from a stop the car jerks, slow to accelerate and smoke coming from under the hood and the exhaust
2010 NISSAN ALTIMA
I took my car to Pepboys for a tune up, they tell me a lot oil got into the spark plugs shaft, and that the valve cover gasket was cracked. So I replaced the valve cover gaskets and got new spark plugs and now my car is jerks like it doesn't want to drive and slow acceleration as it does that smoke comes out my exhaust pipe and from under the hood. It jerks for a little second and then the car drives normal but it always happens after I come to a complete stop. What could be the problem?
have the same problem?

Did you do the repairs or the repair shop?
If the plugs are not gapped correctly, it will do this.
