    I had an accident and my car has been fixed. It took them about two months. When I left the garage I noticed white smog from exhaust. (I used AC on my way home) The check engine light is off. Other warning lights are off. I drove to my home for about 17 min and ...

      First question - regarding the accident repairs; what components / items were fixed? Does the white smoke only occur at startup with the engine cold? Did you notice this smoke condition before the accident or repairs?

      They had to fix the front of my car. I think they had to replace the engine gasket. I noticed the white smog only after repairs. I didn't have that before. For sure!
      I didn't know there was white smog. When I got home and was trying to park my car (after about 15 min drive) my neighbor told me that there is white smog from exhaust. (That was after I left the garage)

      OK - which engine gasket was replaced - there are dozens. Can you provide details of the work performed? Is there any smell or odor to the white smoke?

      if the white smoke from the exhaust quickly vanishes, the white smoke you see may be vapor, this is tipically because of a faulty gasket, if they replaced one head gasket, there is a chance water is leaking and because of temperature it evaporates through the exhasust system....take the car back to the shop for job warranty...

    I hear a loud rattle beneath the center of my car only when running the AC
    I only hear the sound when I am stationary with the car in gear (ie. waiting on a red light in Drive) I don't hear the sound in Park or Neutral. No rattle at all if the AC is off. "Engine" does not match for a category but nothing else does.

      Check engine and transmission mounts. When a car is idling in park or neutral, there is not load. When the car is put into gear, a load is presented and the engine/transmission uses the chassis as a point to anchor onto. If the the mounts are bad, you will feel the vibrations produced by the engine and/or transmission.

      Other things to check for are a bad map (manifold absolute pressure) sensor and bad O2 (oxygen) sensor. I'm almost positive your vehicle is not "missing" (misfiring)......if it was, the ECM (engine control module) would pick up on the misfires, and then you would have a check engine light.
