Take out the fuel pump fuse. Crank it over till it starts without it. Put the fuse back in and crank on it again. I had to put a battery charger on my car. It works great, but a little hard on the starter.

if you have white smoke in your exhaust, you have a blown headgasket, and if you 626 is turbo'd and depending to the tubo is cooled eg antireeze, then coolant could be leaking out that way too. also it would be helpfull to know what the steam is coming from. BUT since you mentioned that is coming from the exhaust, it woud wager that its a blown head gasket. you can veryfi this a number of way. take out your spark plugs one at a time and have a look at them. if a couple look "too clean" or seam to "steam cleaned" compared to the other ones = lack carbon build up etc, then the plug that you took out is the cylinder where the engine coolant is leaking into. also, you can do a compression test = which ever cyclinders are super low = blown gasket is located on that cylinder. PS if you do have a blown head gasket, you should replace your oxygen sensor as well because the glycol in the antifreeze wrecks the O2 sensor.

The converter should last 10 or 15 years if you don't have issues that damage it. Get thoses codes checked out and repaired. If you have antifreeze entering the exhaust,a leaking fuel injector,bad o2 sensor etc,that could ruin the converter,if you drive it that way for a year or more. The converter may be installed wrong or an exhaust joint is leaking in air and setting a code. o2 sensor loose and other issues. Have to start somewhere and walk it down untill you find the problem.
