The engine was smoking very badly? Was any smoke coming out of the tailpipe? If not, either the exhaust manifold is broken or off the vehicle, or the exhaust pipe is broken, has a hole in it, or it is completely missing! Is it really loud?

You SAID the engine was smoking. But if you said that in error, then perhaps the exhaust system is okay, but oil is getting into the cylinders. Check for a PCV (positive crankcase ventilator) valve that may not be working right. Another thing that can make heavy smoke come out of tailpipes is a head gasket leak, with antifreeze getting into the cylinder chambers. How is the oil level and the coolant level? If there is that much smoke, it is advisable to not drive the vehicle for any reason except an emergency!

Car won't stay running


If the problem only happens when the engine is cold, a bad electric sensor is likely to blame. If the car stalls even when the engine is warm, the cause is likely a faulty electric fuel pump.

Clicks but won t turn over


Most likely a bad or low battery or bad connection or bad solenoid or starter or combination of any of them. Those lights will mostly stay on till the engine cranks before going off.

I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.

Your heater core is leaking. if it was left disconnected the engine coolant would have come out immediately upon starting the engine the very first time..
