Overhet then smoke as I'm sure you know is not good. then shut off and will not start, sounds like a blown head gasket, this would allow coolant to escape to the point of overheating, and the smoking as well, coolant in the cylinders via a blown gasket would prevent starting. DW Mylin

SOURCE: my car shut down while driving on the freeway,

Sounds like it is. The fuel presure can be checked under the hood with a guage.

MY FORD F250 97 5,8 L TRUCK OVERHEATED AND NOW WONT START


You just gotta face it: your engine is munched.

Sorry.

Nothing but nothing will totally ruin an engine faster, or more thoroughly, than overheating. And the damage that is done it not the kind that can usually be repaired. Every component of the engine is likely ruined, every single internal part.

If you would have turned the engine IMMEDIATELY off, and coasted to the side of the road, you might not be in this position. But since you ran it until it started pounding ("pinging" you called it), you can rest assured that it will likely never run again.

Sorry!

I just replaced the starter on my daughters 1996 Honda Accord it started overheating and shutting off she put antifreeze in the radiator but it continued to smoke and shut off again now it won't s


If the smoke is white ,it's water (head or gasket)
Timing belt will shut it off completely.
Can't see any way the starter could have anything to do with it.
However if it has a head gasket problem,hydrostatic lock can
make a good starter look bad(,water will not compress like air)
so if there is water in a cylinder the engine won't turn over.
If a head gasket is bad there will be white smoke out the
tailpipe and bubbles coming out of the radiator (cap off while
cold)

Starter turns, won't start, overheated


You possibly have antifreeze in your engine where it dont belong, like the exhaust manifold if it was coming out of your exhaust. One reason it wont start is that either the head gasket went out and anitfreeze is leaking in that way or the manifold gasket is out and its getting in the combustion chambers to the pistons.

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving


Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
