I have a 95 olds 88 that died on me a couple of days ago. A little background on what happened: it was driving normally & then started to hesitate a little. Drove a little further & the hesitation go worse. It start to run really rough & wouldn't accelerate. Pulled into a gas station & shut it off. Started it back up smoke came out of the engine compartment & ran really rough. Shut it off & opened the hood to see where the smoke came from. Started the car again & the smoke came from the rear, center of the engine & smelled like antifreeze. Shut the car off again & now it won't start back up. It has been consuming anti freeze for the past month or so but never saw where it was leaking out of or to where. No pools of anything have appeared.
Here is what we have tried/checked so far. We do have spark at all cylinders but it is a yellow spark & not a blue spark. I had the 3 coil packs & ignition module checked at Autozone. They said they passed the tests. We have good fuel pressure. We hooked up a code scanner last night & it didn't give any codes.
Not sure where to turn at this point. Someone mentioned the crank shaft sensor but I was told that if that is bad, then there wouldn't be any spark.
Looking for some help!
have the same problem?
