01 Dodge Durango started smoking white smoke from under hood at light check gauges comes on and off got it home it starts and runs but will shut off and now has check engine light


you may have just smoked the oxygen sensor wire, its located in the exhaust. If you have the money pay the checkout charge at the dealer if not, back trace it from the sensor and see if you can find melted insulation

Well, that's a good engine test, anyway, not smoking and blown up yet, lol. I like your attitude, are you sure you don't drive a cavalier?
It sounds like the water pump, Molly. Better get it changed before serious damage results.

89' Blazer S10: None of the gauges on my dash work


Smoke isn't a good thing. When you shut the engine off the engine actually heats up some prior to cooling down because the coolant isn't running through the engine any longer. When you have electric fans, that's why they stay on for a few minutes after the car has shut off. Is the smoke coming from the fuse panel on the fender well or could it be your valve cover gaskets leaking onto the exhaust manifolds?

2000 dodge caravan 3.3L is over heating


Hello, If your car overheats and damages the engine, you have no one to blame but yourself. Keep your eyes on the temperature gauge and never let the needle move into the red. Pull over before it gets too hot. And to resolve this follow this steps:

1. Turn off the engine.

2. Wait. If the engine is steaming, don't open the hood.

3. Pull the hood release lever under the dashboard to open the hood when the car has cooled completely.

4. Walk around the front of the car, reach under the hood, find the latch and squeeze it. As you squeeze the latch, pull up and open the hood.

5. Check the coolant reservoir tank first. It's a plastic jug that has a small hose running to the radiator. The reservoir can be filled when the engine is hot (except on German and Swedish cars, the plastic reservoir is also under pressure, so don't open when the engine is hot).

6. Open the radiator cap with a rag. Remember: open it only after the engine has completely cooled. If you're not sure, don't open the cap. If you open the cap while it's still warm, you may burn yourself with steam or hot coolant. Open the cap slowly, as if you were opening a bottle of soda that has been shaken up.

7. Examine the radiator. Look inside and see if there's coolant left. If needed, fill to the top of the radiator.

8. Put the radiator cap back on.


9. Check to see that the upper or lower radiator hose, or any of the heater hoses, hasn't burst.

10. Restart the engine.

11. Watch the temperature gauge obsessively. Don't let the needle go into the red. Turn off the engine if the gauge approaches the red zone.
Thanks
