My car would not start. I tried several times, and noticed smoke coming from the front. My security light is on. I can't remember how I made it go off before.

SOURCE: flashing security light

if ur key has the security chip in it, it possible that ur ignition switch isnt reading that chip right away. i mean as long as u can get ur car started try and not get too worried about it. it is possible that ur ignition might be goin bad so try to keep an eye on it and if it starts to get worse take it in.

if you had an oil change and oil got into the frame the fan could be blowing that back on the engine and that is what could be causing this smoke also check out the drive belt

SOURCE: oily spark plug,changed plugs now car smokes

You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.

If this light grey smoke comes out when you start the engine, then when you drive for a while vanishes, means you have Oil leakage trough valves O-Rings! you can't do it your self... you should take it to a shop. Usuall this happens when you park for longer than 2 - 3 hours, then start engine (depending on how sever is the case).
If smoke keeps coming out all the time, means your engine needs an overwhole in a good shop

1998 S-10 tuck runs good,then few days later when the truck is turned off wont start,cranks good,changed fuel pump and filter,its getting fuel and spark theres a security light comes on,then sits for few...


Hey have you recently changed your head unit. I have a 2000 s10 2.2 and i recently hardwired my pioneer 4000ub head unit and the security light came on upon not starting. every time you try to start the car while the security light is on it will add 10 minutes onto your time. For the security light not to come on you need to check your wiring. just remember dont keep trying becuase it wont work!!! find the problem and fix it.

Car won't start, i hear a click but the engine won't turn over


It's more likely to be the starter than the alternator but first i would make sure the new battery is fully charged.

white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.

Security light 1999 Olds alero


My 1999 alero was doing the same thing a few years back. I took it to the shop and they told me it had something to do with my ignition (it was several years ago so I can't remember exactly what they said). It was sort of an expensive fix. It hasn't done it since. I hope that helps a little.
