    Car smoking during emissions

    I am going thru inspection Wasgington D.C, but they wont take the car for inspection because it is smoking out of the tailpipe?

    I am trying to figure out what may be the cause of why smoke would be coming from the tailpipe. Any information that can be provided would be extremely helpful!!!

    Thank in advance to all.

    -Leon J.

    What color is the smoke, and what does it smell like?

    Is it smoking constantly? Only when accelerating?
