My 1985 vette starts up cold good and no smoke but after warm up it don't want to crank when it does it has black gray smoke for a min what's wrong


not starting when it gets warm could be a starter problem, the amp draw is probably to high for the battery to supply enough power to start. starter draw should be around 150-200 amps. the black gray smoke is too much fuel that isn`t being burnt. if the starter draw is too high then there isn`t enough voltage for the ignition system to fire the plugs properly causing the smoke.

My 95 Integra smoke at the start white smoke what is that five minutes later it goes away


White Smoke --usually a sign of a failed head gasket
or other issue, allowing coolant into the cylinder & a major
repair

White Smoke only on start up after sitting (Not Lasting 5 Min)
is raw fuel (gasoline) from leaking injectors, leaking fuel into
the cylinders

Injectors can fail,wear,leak or be dirty & NO you can not clean them

Forget the Genie in a Bottle The injectors have to come out & be
mailed away for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

That condition - the raw fuel- will over heat your exhaust converter
& ruin it as well as many other problems-lack of fuel control the
main one.

Soundstream pca2000d started smoking on me what do you think is wrong


well. if it doesn't function after smoking, then it needs to go to a GOOD technician. ( if one is available to you) if not then send it to soundstream. if this was not a good amp , I would advise getting rid of an amp that smoked, however soundstream is a good brand and deserves another chance. (always depending on the cost of repairs)
hope this helps.

I have JL300/4. My front speakers starting popping and sounding bad, so I replaced them. When I turned the reciever on to listen to them, the right speaker started smoking. Could my amp be bad? The rear...


Well its not a good sign when your equipt starts smoking . Chances are that at least one channel of your amp is bad .But your real quest is to find out why the amp smoked in the first place. Chances are you have a shorted wire or speaker or both. Best way to check is is to check the wire with an ohm meter, if it reads less than 4 ohms you have a short .Next disconnect the speaker and check the wires to ground and measure the speaker. You need to do this before you repair or replace your amp or you will have it happen again. Noow it is possible the amp did fail on its own but the chances are it had help.

If the terminals were smoking, it's probably due to loose screws in the terminal block or wire that's too small.

Did the amp work properly after the terminal blocks smoked?
