    Default Truck Sounds like its misfiring..Help

    I have a 1982 K10 Pickup. V8 5.0 liter .Yesterday I left the house and went somewhere 5 minutes from home. Truck ran fine. Got back home parked it and was inside for maybe 1 or 2 hours. Went back out and couldn't get the truck to run. I would get it started and then it would run Absolutely horrible And eventually shut off. The past few days my choke light had been turning on and off even when I was driving. Also the oil gauge was bouncing around. I checked the oil and the dipstick was dry. So I went to the auto parts store and bought oil. I tried to start the car again and it kept doing it. I an replacing the spark plugs and wires today. Anybody think they know what could be going on? I though it may have been vapor lock so I let the car sit until dark when it cooled off and that didn't help. It is also blowing really stinky white smoke out of the exhaust pipes. Can anybody help?


    Just a second ago the ground for the negative is smoking
