Question about Scion Cars & Trucks
I have recently just gotten my car fixed from an accident i was in. the battery looks like nothing moved and undamaged from what i can see but below it i see white bulidup/residue. is this bad for my car? What should i do im driving to az (1,700 miles) within the next two weeks. Thanks for help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can clean it with baking soda and water. Does it look wet anywhere? What you see is corrosion from acid that comes out from time to time during the life of the car. It can be normal. If you remove the battery look for wet spots(before you clean it) if none are found and your car seems to be starting ok then you should be ok!

Cant be positive without seeing it but with everything you described it sounds one of your rubber exhaust valve guides may have broken. You will have to remove the valve cover and push rods to find out. I don't like to make guesses at things but I would put a good bet on it.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Cavelier won't start
It sounds a lot like mine, after doing some searching online I've come to the conclusion that it's the fuel pump. This seems to be a recurrent problem with the Cavalier and Chevy is NOT offering a free fix. You have to drop the fuel tank in order to replace the pump as it is located inside the tank. The price of a new fuel pump varies as does the amount of time (quoted by various people) to complete the job. Good Luck.

It is not a vacuum leak, it only happens when multiple accessories are operated at the same time, ie. lights, wipers, and hvac blower. My truck which also the same year Cherolet does the exact same thing, only under braking, with accessroies operating. I have determined that the cause is directly related to the electrical system, lack of sufficent current to drive multiple accessories at one time, the alternator is obviously to small.

Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.
