1995 Saturn SC1 Question: Rough running and wht./ blue smoke

I had a fuel pump replaced. Now the car runs rough and white / blue smoke emits from the exhaust. what has caused this? It ran fine without any smoke prior to failure of the fuel pump. -
Answer 1
White smoke or steam from the exhaust could be a sign of a blown head gasket particularly if the engine runs rough. There is a simple test called a block check used to detect the presence of carbon monoxide in the cooling system which would only be present if the head gasket failed. Fuel pump replacement would be unrelated. -
