Went through puddle during raining day,the car started smoking never shut off.It started up with no problem the next day,but later that night it shut off while driving and now won't start 2010 accent


When you say "now won't start" does the starter motor spin the engine the engine just never fires, or does the starter motor not even spin the engine? Do all the electrical accessories seem to work correctly? How deep was the puddle? Did the "smoke" smell like something melting, or might it have just been steam from water on the hot exhaust?

Is it normal for my truck to smoke on a cold day even after truck has fully warmed up? Not thick smoke light white smoke thought it was suppose to stop after truck warmed up fully


white 'smoke' may be condensation (steam)? Did it do this in the summer as well? Even with a warm engine and hot exhaust the steam will still condense after it leaves the tailpipe on cold days. Your fuel contains water at microscopic level which is vaporised as part of the combustion process.

Hello,
There is a possibility that the old motor was not burning properly and you have carbon build up on the O2 sensers. A poorly functioning O2 senser will not allow the Fuel/Air mixture to work as you give it gas under load. You could have multiple O2 sensers too.

Trying to find out where the fuel shut off sensor is located on a 2001 Dodge stratus. It will run for 10 minutes then stall and wont restart for a while and repeats


The auto stutdown relay will turn the fuel pump and fuel injection system off. This relay is marked in the underhood fuse relay panel. The senser that it may be shutting down for may be the coolant temperture senser. There might not be anything wrong with the senser as the therostate could be stuck and the cars overheating ( at the senser). There's an air charge temperture senser too and itr's screwed into the air cleaner housing or hose and if it gets too hot, or reports faulsely that it's too hot it'll shut down. But let's say that it's not too hot and the coolant is full and the cooling system is working right ( the readitor fan comes on when it's hot and shuts off as the fan brings the temperture down low enough that the fan is'nt needed. ) Their are parts in the ingtion that'll do this too. the coil. the computer, the distrubuter pickup and the crank and cam sensers. These things if they drop out won't nessarily turn the check engine light on but, will show on a licve time scanner as not putting a singnal out as they arn't working. The fuel pump can overheat as if the fuel filter may be partly clogged andf the pump is trying too hard to make pressure and the pump finally gets hot enough to stop. If the check engine light is on with the engine running it's likly that the codes stored in the computer will give a good ides as to why it's shutting down.

If smoke is coming out of the hood, check for leaks. Usually this happens because oil is pooling up and evaporating off the hot engine. If there's a leak it could also cause your engine to act erratically

Runs fine off idle but at idle with AC on the engine misfires


theres alot of 2002 chevys of different kinds but they all can get a vacume leak the 3.1 and 3.4 even the 4.3 and the 5.7 blow intake gaskets. un plug the pcv valve and the vent hose from the valve cover to the air cleaner hose. plug the holes good with tape and rags till sealed if it runs smooth ar idle then the intake is leaking. Coming into cold weather I did then as fast as I could as there was always another one in the parking lot. Leak coolant too. about half and half, some both. a few were driven too far they were blown. Plug wires and injectores dropping out will do it too. but check engine light on with codes P0300 or any code P0301-308. Vacume leak can set all kinds of stuff from map senser, cam senser Egr back pressure, ramdom cylinder miss to certain cylinder miss. and the leak will be the problem not the sensers or wires

94 lumina will not start after getting warm. will turn over but fuel injectors dont work. works during cold weather but not in hot weather.


The check engine light should be on with the engine running. The coolant temperture senser may be open at some temps the fastest way to test this is to change the senser ( it's cheap and a high failure rate part all auto parts stores will haveplenty of this high failure part in stock and they fail many ways. If the car ever overheated it's damaged or truly bad. A very good one will optimize fuel mileage so if it's suspect change it anyway as money well spent a working but wrong senser can cost alot of gas on any fuel injection car or truck, You get what you pay for in temp sensers and the brand name ones are better. All of them are suspect to be bad even when new and ohm test at temperture charts are is repair manuels. Crank sensers and cam sensers also get hot and quit they cost more are harder to change and fail more on the 3.8 motor than the 3.1 or the 3.4. Igiton modules do this too but it sounds like its been doing this awhile and modules and crank sensers don't stay half bad very long. they stop altogrther. Temp sensers can stay bad and work wrong. If you can get a scanner hooks to the car on data stream the senser may show room temp when cold but as it heats up goes up then to -34 thats open the system doesn't know that to do as the air charge temp senser doesn't agree and the system fails to start and will check as flooded. Flooring the gas and hoding it there may start it anyway. The trottle position senser were to show open thats the clear flood mode and the injectors won't fire. Tps voltage should show .5 volt les than 1 volt at idel (it'll start) and 5 volts at full throttle or nearly. if it shows with a scanner of a voltmeter on the center wire 5 volts or 0 it won't start. Coolant senser fails more often and is cheaper

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm


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.
