2003 vw jetta 1.8 turbo; when accelerating up steep grades massive amounts of white smoke come from the exhaust (sometimes when it happens, I cannot even see the car behind me) but goes away when I stop accelerating. This is very embarrassing. Very rarely does this happen during normal driving. My mechanic has not been able to identify the problem. Any thoughts?

my oil was leaking and I took it into the mechanic. He did some re-sealing but said if continues to leak that it will need housing replacement. Is this something that I can find used or is it best to let him get the part for lots of $$?

loud whining noise when car starts. when driving and turning whining noise. What is the correct type and cost to replace spark plugs someone quoted me $200 for spark plugs replacement he said use the most expensive ones around $20 a piece.
My car was running great the other day, then I was running low fuel, so I got some gas (93 octane as always). After leaving the gas station, I immediately noticed hesitation while accelerating. I drove for about a 1/2 mile, parked and turned the car off. Restarted, car still hesitated when driving. Drove for about 1 mile then the car started acting really bad. Finally, it gave up. As I pressed the gas more, it lost speed. I pulled over to the side of the road, and it just quit. For the next hour I was able to crank it, and it would run for about a second, then cut off. If I put the car in neutral (lower RPMs) it ran for about 2-3 seconds. Today, the car won't start, but was able to crank. I believe I have water in my gas, but I'm not totally sure.
