Overheated and now it wont start


overhet then smoke as I'm sure you know is not good. then shut off and will not start, sounds like a blown head gasket, this would allow coolant to escape to the point of overheating, and the smoking as well, coolant in the cylinders via a blown gasket would prevent starting. DW Mylin

My 1998 chevy malibu wont start after overheating with smoke why


If the engine was overheated, you most likely have a cracked cylinder head and/or a blown head gasket. The reason it won't start is because there is angine coolant getting in the combution chambers. (You cannot run the engine on antifreeze)

I over heated my car know it wont start. Just replaced the battery and still wont start. Smoke from the starter comes out what shall i do?


Don't try starting anymore until you find out why starter is overheating. What was the cause of the car overheating? Was it a severe overheat? If so, it may be possible that the engine is seized now and the starter can't turn it over.

Hard starting diesel, at approxamately anytime temp gets below 45 degrees F. runs rough when started, smokes, then once warmed up no problem. Has quit on me twice in traffic.


only 2 things can maake a diesel run rough at start up ,,1--- air in the system 2----- 1 or more of the glow plugs not working. this sounds like the latter ,if you have a couple of glow plugs not working ,it will miss on those cylinders until it warms up ,and the smoke is mostll exesive fuel when it does fire . recommend you check the glow plugs

Overheating and missing


The first thing to do is quit throwing parts at your car. That said, this is a very generic answer. Missing and overheating that started in a similar timeframe is quite possibly a head gasket issue. More info would be needed such as exactly how does your guage act, does it overheat quickly if you keep the rpms up? Does it smell sweet near the exhaust? Does it Smoke/steam out the exhaust when you first start it? Where any of your spark plugs white on the electrode end? Also a clogged cat. can give you this trouble. At idle everything is fine, at higher rpms the exhaust cant get out fast enought holding in the heat (overheating after a while) and causing a miss just the same as if a exhaust valve was stuck. Two things to think about.

Blue smoke is oil, probably a sign of worn rings, has it done quite high mileage?
