I'm wondering if it is fesible to exchange the gas engine for disel. My car smokes and uses oil. The vehicle is in Springdale, Arkansas if anyone knows where I can take it.

It's possible, but very involved. It'd be a lot easier an cheaper to get a reman motor.

Not only would it be a very difficult project, the value of the frankenstein would be much lower than otherwise.

I wouldn't try it. Just the complexity of the changeouts would be too much.
