There are posts about KIAs sitting too long and the fuel injectors sticking open causing excess fuel and overly hot cats that destroy themselves. Be careful not to get them too hot.
Some Chevron Tecron fuel injector cleaner in the gas may loosen the crud and get the engine running smooth again. Just watch for hot cats.

The white "smoke" could be a bad head gasket and antifreeze coming out the tail pipe... put your hand down in the exhaust stream (when the engine is cold so the exhaust won't burn you) and smell the residue..If it smells sweet you're smelling antifreeze...and you may have a bad gasket.
