Question about 1993 Pontiac Grand Am
Died driving saw puff of smoke front passenger side checked relays fusible links and replaced coil still not starting
You must RUN the scanner/computer for easy diagnostic and fix it.
The electronic vehicle now is very complicated. see the diagram attached. You can have faulty:PCM+BCM+ignition coil+sensors+distributor+wires spark plug+etc.
God bless you

your cooling system is preasureising due to a leaking cylinder head gasket the white smoke you see is coolant passing through the exhaust valve on the offending cylinder have the cooling system tested for CO content hope this advice helps

SOURCE: steering wheel smoke?
They will find the problem if they take it apart. Could be the airbag, horn, any controls on the steering column. It sounds like it may have some burnt wiring.

SOURCE: car cranks but wont start
replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

We have a 1996 Grand am SE 6 cyl with similar problem. If yours is a 6 cyl check your crank sensors. There are 2 of them, one behind the Vibration damper and one on the back of the block that has a yellow / purple wire to the Ignition Control Module. Haynes manual electrical diagram call this one an Ignition Timing Sensor, but it is a Crank Sensor at the parts stores. I would check this one first. You should also check your coils and Ignition Switch and Knock Sensor. You can get a Haynes repair manual from Advanced auto that will explain how to test these items. Good Luck.
