Mate I use to drive a freightliner and it cut out on me one day, I eventually got it started but cut out again after about 5 minutes, I rang a mechanic to come out and he found a heat sensor wire came off the radiator and that caused the motor to cut out... Hope I haven't wasted your time.......

2002 vue v6...starts and runs well however when I stop , shut off the engine, then try to start after half hour , it wont start


Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

Engine starts and runs fine for five minutes or less then starts smoking and runs rough.


black smoke - oil in the cylinders

White smoke - water in the wrong area - probably a head gasket.

The head gasket is what I am hoping for because it is cheaper to do. And most instructions manuals from an autoparts store has step by step instructions.

If it is oil then you are looking at rebuilding or replacing your engine.

Take a look at both the oil and antifreeze to check for cross contamination which would verify the blown head gasket.

Suv would just stop and not restart for 10-15 min. May drive several miles would stop again each time with white smoke coming from under hood. Mechanic changed "water hose" . Water now, draining into...


you need to replace your heater core. it is up under the dash on that side of the vehicle. but as for the white smoke it sounds like a possible blown head gasket or a cracked head.

Smoke problem


hey
there are couple of smoke type.blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel, and white smoke is water, if it clears after starting and running a few minutes it's probably your valve guide seals leaking oil down on top of your pistons, causing it to smoke until burned off and foul your plugs.
