Got a problem with the EB.
Takes a few seconds to start up (used to start first go)
Idles a little rough but not bad.
In drive or reverse it is rough as and shutters.
Sometimes blows white smoke, heaps of it.
Doesnt seem to have used any water or oil.
Blows the white smoke after driving for a few hundred meters then when I was at the lights, but doesnt seem like its blowing while driving.

Any help would be appreciated.

Things to check, coil & dizzy and maybe the vac hose for the MAP sensor.
With the dizzy, check the cap, as in the carbon brush, and have a look at how much wobble the shaft has.

white smoke? sounds like burning coolant

check that head gasket mate, between the water jacket and the cylinder.

look for rusty spark plugs

Is it about sex? The engine in my car? Or a cure for cancer?

Then f**k off
