I have a 2002 nissan xterra with a supercharger. The truck started smoking after a noise form the SC and lost power...Any thoughts on what might be causing this...


it sounds like there is a problem with the supercharger that needs repair or replacing depending on what has been damaged.the smoke is from the charger blowing oil into the motor.i would say the super charger will need to be replaced and hopefully there is no engine damaged.

The charging yellow light is not on when I plug the charger. The positive and negative terminals hooked correctly and I am charging it at 120 volts, 6 amps


the wire at the clamps might have came off,there is a thermal fuse inside the charger also, get one at the auto parts store .bring the old one with you. OR some of the newer chargers are fussy that the battery must have some power to get the charger to turn on.. i use jumper cables to get my charger started..
DID I HELP ? VOTE . THANKS J

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

Toyota camry 97 smoke charger does not work and also


make sure the mirror switch is set ti rt or lt. if so and niether mirror works you probably need a new switch.
not sure exactly what a smoke charger is but i'll asume you mean the cig lighter. you may have some debris in the lighter reciever or a blown fuse or both.
