My Ride: BMW 318i A/T
Smoking 318i

I recently took my car to a mechanic to have the oil changed for I wanted to travel long distance. I bought the oil filter myself as well as the oil. After collecting the car I noticed a strong fuel smell. I returned the car and they told me that a certain fuel pipe came loose. After solving the smell problem the car started to smoke when I drive up an incline or accele
rate suddenly. It seem also that it misfires at that moment when accelerating. I am very dissapointed for I love my car and had to take my wife's Polo to go on holiday.
Can anyone maybe identify this problem for me. The car is also very much down on power and not so responive as I am used to. The car is a 2003 318i a/t with only 103000 on the clock.
