Car turns over but won't start, then lets out smoke


most probably, the misfire (smoke) was caused by a wrong firing order of the plugs. check if the high tension wires are on the correct plugs.

another thing that can cause this is incorrect ignition timing. have a mechanic check your timing on crankshaft, camshaft, and distributor (if present)

Turned ignition key and a puff of gray smoke...


Hi ,
Sounds like you burned a "fuse able link". If you open your hood and look going away from the battery at all the wires you probably will see which wire melted. These links are designed to prevent major wiring harness fires. So you have a major dead short in your wiring. It would be difficult to lead you through the tracing down of the short but with a careful eye you may be able to see the bad wire as it will show signs of arcing. Good Luck!!!!!

Staring issue... 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder(manual tran). recently I've noticed that in the morning or after it's sat for while, when I turn the key the engine cranks for a couple of seconds before...


instead of cranking, just leave key on for a minute...if there isn't a delay starting after that it may be a bad drainback valve in the pump. You can either live with it for a while or replace pump...but check that it's not an injector leaking into engine first.(usually if that's the case, leaving key on will lengthen start time and give a puff of black smoke on startup)

Neon won't start


Hate to say it but you have to start tracking wires... Start from your battery and go from there. Sounds like a possible fusable link that blew but the only way to tell is checking for power from battery cables. keep me informed.
