Sounds like a clogged catalytic converter.

    It will only get expensive if you have to buy a new cat convertor and your state has emission laws. Otherwise you can simply gut the converter and drive happily down the road.

It sounds like it has jumped time. What year is the car and how many miles. Timing chains can go bad as early as 70,000 miles

93 Jeep GC turns over , will not start


Chasnge the fuel filter and have the fuel pressure tested. likely it's a pump beginning to fail or an obstruction (like plugged filter) in the system. (hope it's the filter...far cheaper)
Good luck! PS: filter is on the frame rail near the l/r tire.

96 GC Orvis-Severe vibration in Idle.


Before you go changing the idle motor, clean the throttle body out with a spray cleaner and make sure you get into the idle speed motor orifice. Spray the cleaner into the throttle body with the engine off, do'nt be afraid to use it all then let it sit awhile. When you try to start the car it might not want to start, just keep your foot all the way down on the gas pedal and as it starts and clears up just release the pedal slowly. If the car smokes out of the exhaust, thats normal. Hope this works.

Big puff of white smoke at start up after sitting for several hours.


white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.
nest time try and smell the white smoke see if it smells sweet?
if it does its antifreeze.
and also black smoke is fuel (like a leaky injector )
hope this helps

7.3 liter diesal won't start.


if it is common rail injection sounds like an injector failiure. If you can tow it in gear and it starts, it's overfuelling.
