My 2010 Honda CRV had a battery dead as a doornail this morning. I jumped it, and it took a long time to charge. Once started, the CRV would shudder a little when releasing the accelerator. After several revs, a loud hissing sound (like escaping pressurized gas) was heard coming from the engine compartment, on the passenger side (I think). A very small amount of white smoke followed. I immediate turned the vehicle off and have not restarted since. What the heck is that? Is it drivable to a shop or should I get it towed?
