I dont know what the F*** went wrong. I have an E30 w/ an m10 motor and I'm blowing some sort of smoke. All I did was jack up the car from the passengers side to see where the exhaust leak is coming from. I dropped the car back down and started it, boy what a shitter. Now the motor idles rough and smoke is coming out. All I did was jack it up. Could it be because the car was on its side and the anti-freeze seeped into the motor through some ports? If this has happened to anyone or know what it could be, please reply.

thank you

P.S. the car ran perfect prior to me jacking it up!!!

Have you run it much since? Maybe you're on the right track with you're seepage idea. Is you car Fuel Injected? Take it for an EASY drive. If it doesn't do away have a look at you're coolant to see if it is dirty. Clean plugs etc...

Thanx Bill... I ran it for a while and it finally cleared up. I think its like turning over a lawnmower to clean the blade and having a hard time strating it up again.... lol
