    I have a 2001 camaro, I was coming down a bridge and I was trying to get gas but the car will not acculate, then it started to shake and finally it turned off.....my boyfriend came and could not get it to start so we called a tow-truck once the tow-truck dropped the car we tried to turn it on again and it turned on. I tried to turn it on the next day and it started to smoke from the engine. what can be wrong?

When you say "wont turn over", do you mean wont start or engine wont crank? if the engine cranks and wont start, try holding gas pedal all the way to floor and crank engine for 10-15 seconds.does it attempt to start? if it starts, rev it up a couple times to clear all unused fuel from engine. may need tune-up, esp spark plugs. if still wont start. let me know and will try to guide you further

  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine

If the engine is running when you try to use the starter, it won't flood the engine, it is already running. What happens is the starter gear tries to lock into the flywheel and this causes the starter to spin faster then it is supposed to. It is likely you damaged the starter and it needs replaced. You can remove it and have Auto Zone test it for free.

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

HELP please!! My daughter has a 96 sebring convertible and today she put her key in the door to unlock it and the alarm started going off. It wont stop, have disconnected the positive and negative battery...


Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey
