Best Answer

Smoke on start up indicates worn valve seals and guides. This won't cause any problems other than a little smoke at first start. Hitch when accelerating... impossible to answer that one. All the usual stuff I guess. When was the last time it had a GOOD tune up? Have you checked the computer for any codes? If it has a real problem the computer will usually display a code to indicate what's wrong. Suggest you start there.
