I have a 2000 nissan maxima. Yesterday i started the car it was making a belt screeching noise. I then put it into gear and the car died. Ad it died a cloud of white smoke came from the engine. The smoke came from the engine bay and the vents in my car. The car would not start again. After a few minutes I was able to start the car. It seems to run fine for the 10 feet I moved it. However every light is light up on my dash.

2003 Alero (3.4) wont start or even attempt to turn over until jumped. While driving I can hear whining through the speakers (with radio off) that matches the engine RPMs. Once I turn the car off, it loses all power, no gauge lights, radio or anything and wont start until I jump it. I also noticed that when in park if I quickly punch the gas I lose RPMs before the engine revs up...sometimes the car will stall and then restart itself on it's own...other times it will die and all my dash light

1998 Chevrolet C3500 dies randomly when driving down the road - uphill, downhill or flat surfaces. Typically doesn't happen when it's cold. Sometimes it starts back up and sometimes it doesn't. When the engine dies, the Security,brake,anti-lock and service engine lights all come on. Sometimes you hear a clicking under the dash. A new ignition switch was just installed and diagnostics done with no results???

My 2005 Chevy Cobalt began showing a "Reduced Engine Power" message, then a "Engine Disabled" message and completely stops. I found that the gas cap was loose and tightening it allowed the car to start. The check engine light would stay on for a while afterward, but eventually goes out. Today it stopped 3 times in one 3 mile trip and every time, the gas cap had loosened again. Does this sound like a gas cap issue, or is that just a coincidence?


The gas cap being loose causes a vacuum issue in newer vehicle which causes your other problems. The issue of the cap coming lose is most likely a bad cap. Replace it and that should solve all the problems. ... 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
