    maybe trash in the fuel filter from sucking all the crappy gas off the bottom of the tank,take off a small vaccuum line and stick the end in a cup full of gas,the engine vaccuum will suck the gas into the engine and if everything else is ok(ignition,comression,timing)it will run,if it does run you have fuel problems....that should be enough to get you started in the right direction
    the way i see it,if you combine two words,like bull and shit...well,you know the rest

    the smoke is most likely caused from the bad fuel thatt was sitting for so long. unless its thick white smoke which is caused by oil and is most likely a bad head gasket.

    thick white smoke is caused by coolant do to a blown head or intake gasket, or crack in the head or block causing coolant to get burned. Oil smokes blue. but if you just replaced the distributor in a camry which im gonna guess is a 2.2 you HAVE to reset the timing that may be why it runs rough. If it were the has it would smoke black. Now i dont know wut anti-smoke stuff you are talking about but it probably only does more damage then good.

    my vote= oil rings are gone...if it constanly smokes and you are not overheating or getting pressure in your hoses or losing coolant...
