Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
1995 grand am will not turn over reverse rotate eng than it will turn over .Is there any timing chain issues . The veh. had a coolant leak than white smoke.Will now crank over but back fires out the throttle body. This is a 3.1L
It sounds like you have a blow-en head gasket. The engine fills up with water and you reverse the rotation it relieves the compression so it will start. White smoke is always water. It does not take much to blow a head gasket on this make of car. I would pull all the plugs out and do a compression check. Look and see if you have water on any plug and mark that one.that will be the side it is on. If there is no water leak check the timing belt if it is a OHC. If not check the timing.
