Question about 1994 Honda Accord
Okay, here is what happened. Left work and drove 40 minutes to pick my son up from daycare. Left the daycare and drove 20 minutes to the store. About 3 miles from the store I noticed that my car was "smoking" from the passenger side half of the engine, but I wasn't sure if it was smoke from my car or spray from the cars passing me or exhaust from the car in front of me. When I pulled into the parking space at the store the oil light flashed on. Bought 2 quarts of oil and some prediluted coolant just in case. Was halfway between the store and home when the green drive light started flashing and the car started smoking, this time I knew it was my car. About 30 seconds later the check engine light came on and I pulled over and turned the car off. When it cooled down enough I put the coolant in, but I noticed that it was leaking out within minutes. Any ideas?

sounds like you might of blown a head or intake manifold gasket or cracked head. If it sounds like a rollercoaster going up the tracks or tractor sound. it's that. It's expensive repair. My advice if you dont know anyone cheap get another used car until you fix it or whatever your situation is. Also, it idles up and down because of the air escaping from the crack. If engine doesnt hold constant pressurethats whate happens. everything is to the T when working with vehicles. Plus redline dont matter, theres a cut off point, however because of the high rev you could of caused the over rev and blew a gasket or cracked the heads. Especially if you didnt have the proper fluids to keep the temperature down. Good Luck. Been there.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

well, driving it 30 minutes after it over heated might have cause serious engine damage, warped head, and other bad engine wear, let the engine cool down park it in a level place and check the fluids, if the water has a milky substance in it then you have a bad problem, if the oil is low then check for leaks, check the transmission fluid for proper fluid level and that could stop the hard shifting.
the smoking could be coming from the fluids that leaked out and when they get hot will start smoking, antifreeze residue will smoke for a short time, it might just need to burn off
