When i try to start the car it makes a click click clicking noise like the starter motor isnt engaging but also the battery is shorting/smoking?? any help?


It sounds like the starter is jammed and overloading the battery, causing the solenoid to drop out when the voltage falls too low due to the dead short on the battery. Remove the starter and check that the bendix in not jammed on a worn ring gear.

My car was smoking were the spark plugs are at and it was making a sound under the car like a clicking noise now it wont start


The smoke is most likely an oil leak.

The clicking and won't start most likely a dead battery try jump starting.
