Its very possible that it could be missfiring, or running rich. Do you have the check engine light on?

I recommend getting the OBD system scanned for codes. If their is an issue such as a misfire a code would be stored in the computer. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Once you know the codes (if any) it will be much easier to diagnose the problem.

Have you switched back to auto mode, and has it reoccurred?

Did you get the car scanned for codes? Just because theirs no CEL doesnt mean a code hasnt been stored.

Check your plugs. Make sure their not fouled. That would indicate possible oil in the cylinders

Blue and white smoke at cold start is a sign of your CCV going south.
