I have a 2.3 with 190,000 miles. My car is not starting. I made the mistake of allowing my younger brother drive the car while I was out of town for the past two months.
The engine cranks, but it will not start. I checked the oil and it was black, and had a burned smell to it, and a small fist-sized puddle of oil was under the car as well. The radiator also had a crack in it. I have changed the oil, and bought a new radiator. I checked the spark plugs and they fire just fine so I do not know what is going on.
It has been two weeks now and I am clueless at this point. Could someone please tell me what is going on with my car. Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
