valve stem seals???

So randomly one day My car doesn't Wana start. It take bout four tries to turn on and after a few seconds it smokes white out the pipes. And it once died out on me once I put it in drive. And the plugs are covered in oil. No power in acceleration at all now. Any ideas?

There is something about this thread that makes me want to raise the flag:

It usually starts slowing down at about 2500 rpms when I push the peddle down.

WTF is slowing down at 2500 RPMs?
Your posts don't make sense.

When I put the peddle all the way down from a dig it takes off but once it hits about 2500 rpms it feels like I let off the gas for a second

I thought this was a forum to get help but from what I've seen recently if your not a master mechanic your not very welcome IMHO if you don't have any helpful info or anything just let it be.

Exactly what I say Pontiac 163 I just want some help

It has brand new wires. But not coil packs. Me and my brother took them off to change the plugs chance that they didn't hook up right?

One of my pet peeves as a moderator here is double posting. I merged your posts, but please try to get all of your thoughts posted in a single post. Thank You

The coil packs should not be an issue.
Plugs ARE covered in oil....or WERE covered??
I am wondering how you know it bogs at 2500RPM if you are stepping on it in 1st gear. Because the 2500RPM comes up REALLY fast in 1st.

How many miles?? Cam sensor could be an issue. Any issue with the plug install?? I'd start checking with the plugs, just to make sure. I could see a wire not being seated completely on either the plug or the coil. Couple of them are a royal pain in the ass to seat.

I'm working on changing the cam position sensor. And what I mean is when I take off from a dig once I get to 2500 it seems like I let off then go again. And that's every gear not just first. And I re checks the plugs I think there all good. I heard the snap in all. U think if I changed the cam sensor it'll fix it???

It is a forum to help, but it's hard to help if the question is not understandable.
