You don't mention what that smell is reminiscent of? You don't mention the colour of the "smoke" and you didn't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel? You don't mention whether the road behaviour/performance is normal? White smoke is almost always steam or in the case of a diesel it could be an unburned fuel mist, grey/black is excess fuel and blue or grey/blue is burning oil. Some steam is fairly normal until the engine and exhaust system is hot but excessive amounts could be one symptom of head gasket trouble. If the engine is drinking coolant and sending it through the exhaust as steam it will sometimes smell spicy. Burning oil smells a bit like burned eggs in the frying pan. If the car hasn't ultra-low sulphur oil and fuel the catalytic converter will convert sulphur traces into hydrogen sulphide - the bad egg gas...

  1. Detach the connector from the throttle position sensor.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter between terminals IDL and E.
  3. Insert a 0.004 in. (0.1mm) feeler gauge between the throttle stop screw and stop lever.
  4. Verify there is continuity between terminals IDL and E.
  5. Then replace the feeler gauge with a 0.027 in. (0.7mm) feeler gauge, verify there is no continuity between terminals IDL and E
  6. Then open the throttle wide and verify there is no continuity again between terminals IDL and E.
  7. Next, connect the ohmmeter between terminals POW and E.

More than likely, my vote goes to the trunk/tailgate area. Some are under the spare tire.

Ronald, When you replaced the starter, I assume you did disconnect the battery. Did you clean the posts before putting your battery cable back on? I replaced my battery a couple of months ago and did not clean them and my van ran fine for several days and then one day would not start. Cleaned the posts and cable ends and everything worked fine. Just a thought. Hope this helps!

Does the pedal have a feel or does it just hit the floor?master cylinder will maybe need replacing or seals.

If a hydraulic clutch, the fluid is low or has leaked, leading to air getting in the system. Thus the clutch will not disengage and let go of the gearbox. If a cable clutch the cable has broken or gone right out of adjustment. Also check the clutch pedal return spring, as these do break due to wear on the attachment hooks. .

Could be the contacts on the swich. Hopefully the switch panel will pop out as a unit from above, otherwise remove the door panel, unclip the switch. Following that you should be able to open the switch and clean the contacts with a qtip and rubbing alcohol.

Check the switch before reassembling the door. If it doesnt work you should be able to swap the connectors with another switch or short the contacts in the switch.

There is a way of gaining access without cutting the floor. You remove the back seat and there are four bolts under the mat if you remove them and lift the fastened cover you will see another cover which has some pipes and electrical socket connector fastenned with small philips screws, if you disconnect the socket , remove the screws and the pipes then lift the unit that is where the fuel pump and the fuel gauge is fitted.

your Tp sensor is faulty it needs to be changed it is sending wrong signal to the ICU. It is suppose to send the right position of the throttle so that the engine is supplied with the right fuel quantity that will enable it to start and run efficiently.

These are pressed in. You have to press the hub out first(center part), then there is a C clip that has to be removed to press the bearing out. If you don't have a 20 ton press take it to a shop. Costs about$30.00

if the transmission will not engage a gear then the torque converter servo/solenoid will need attention running the fault codes will identify the exact cause and at autozone the read is free. drain out excess oil as that creates frothing of the oil which will give transmission problems.
