Could be a head gasket leak as white smoke is a sign of water. I would suggest having it checked. It doesnt take alot to cause white smoke.

Pt cruiser wont start. checked battery, starter , releighs and ignition, and they seem fine. no codes come up when turning the key 3 times


To do self diag on a pt u need to start with ignition off. Hold trip button in for the odometer keeping trip button held down turn ignition key to run then release trip. This will also run a self test on instrument cluster. Codes will be displayed in the odometer at the end of test

Got new battery for 01 mirage how many miles do i drive to reset computer to pass emissions test


computer re-calibrate in what is called a trip. One trip consist of starting car when engine is completely cooled off, driving until engine is at normal operating temp(temp gauge), turn off let engine completely cool again. Most cars take 3-5 "trips" to verify changes made. So i would play it safe and call it "5 Trips"

After highway driving for 2 hours and stopping for gas the car would initially start and then stall, it would run again until the car cooled for 30 minutes.


Sounds like your coolant level might be low. At highway speed you probably have enough coolant and with the air passing thru the radiator keeps the temp down, but at idle not so much. Or depending whether you have a belt drive or electric fan. Belt driven, could need a new belt.

1990 Volkswagon Jetta won't turn back on after long drive.


Then you have a start up problem and it reside with the cold start valve,The cold start valve operates even if the vehicle is warmed up,the cold start valve can be plugged up,or even have a bad connection,The cold start valve operates by a thermotime switch.This switch located on the near bottom of the radiator may have gone bad or disconnected,Here is the easy cost effective route, replace them both,it will cost more to trouble shoot it than just replace it.

94 VW Golf. Starts and runs sitting, drive it about 10 mins and it just dies and won't restart. Have changed Coil, wires, plugs, cranck shaft sensor. Fuel Pump/Filter?


a)When you go to restart it does it die right after restart?
b)Does it die after you put it in gear after restart?
c)Doesn't restart at all?
Not sure if you changed fuel pump? If you did eliminate it from cast of characters.

If a & c engine main relay or fuel pump
If b torque converter clutch solenoid

My vw cut out and does not start for day can u help me it is not a golf it is a polo the engine turns over but does not start


I had that - it seems it is a common problem with these cars. I changed a couple of things and then scrapped it.

Since then I have heard that it is often the crank position sensor. Supposedly it is cheap to change so that would be a good start.

Mine would drive normally and then it would just die and not restart for anything from 2 mins to a couple of hours - then it would run normally for a while.

Vw golf 1994 1598cc with monotronic injection, engine only starts from cold. won't restart once warm, anybody had the same problem? if so what is the cause?


sounds like a clogged fuel bar and may be in need of replacement ...every-time you turn the key from off to on the cold start injector fires the car.also may be a clogged fuel filter to bad fuel-pump but open the hood and visually inspect the vacuum lines for cracks and wear as well as the plug wires and other wires are not grounding out somewhere look for the obvious as well as all fluid levels
