Was running erratically then quit now won't start

does it turn over and not fire up ? or not turn over at all? if not turning over at all and the smoke you noticed from starter area would suggest the starter is the problem so i'd check the wiring in that area for any burnt ,loose wires/connectors and check the starter for signs of burning ,if turns over but not fire up then i,d get the OBD codes read as may indicate a sensor fault but the older vehicles have a limited OBD so more investigation of the fuel/air , ignition systems would be needed

On my 1994 olds 98 it won't start no voltage at the C3i harness connector.

Can we back up??? So there is no Voltage getting to where? Is there Power to the Starter? Power to the Pump? Power going into the Computer but no signal coming out?

2003 Oldsmobile Alero won't start

Chances are you got water inside the fuse box or a wiring harness connection.
You may have to start tracing circuits to find out what is getting power and what is not.

1972 olds 98 455ci starts and runs fine when its cold but once i've driven it for awhile it starts sputtering like its running out of gas

sounds like a vapor lock. older cars needed a set of points . they kept firing times in sync with fuel delivery , valves opening/closing try that.

1988 Oldsmobile Regency 98 will idle but won't quits on the road

Mixture solenoid Quadrajet carburetor? I might start in that neighborhood if it has that carb. Quite cantankerous if not in freshly rebuilt and operating mode. Can cause more than mild symptoms. All your electrical connections and engine/body grounds in good shape? Trying to rule out ignition breakdown so you can focus on fuel delivery, which is my suspicion in this case. Let me know what you find. Thanks, TT
