In an attempt to hopefully bring back my car to life I plugged in a obd2 scanner to read for the codes since the check engine light is on, srs airbags, and oil light is on. Nothing came up on the scanner and it is a pretty nice scanner the fx6000 Ancel.
The car wonít even turn over when I press the start button it makes a clicking sound and the whole system and lights flicker. I already checked the battery which is fairly new and recharged it just to make sure.
This all started when I was driving home from going to get food, my check engine light came on and the oil light. Inside the cabin I smelled oil and saw white cloud of smoke come out of my exauhst. I continued to drive for a bit and the check engine light went off but I could still feel the car running rough especially at idle speeds. I pulled over at the nearest gas station and bought oil under the impression it was low. I turned off my car and put in a quart and a half and the oil level is now full. When I went to start the car it would turn over but did not start. I let it sit and then attempted over again and still nothing. The final time it turned over smoke came out under the engine bay, it appears the smoke came out the passenger side bottom nearest to the headlight.
My guess is maybe the starter went out but Iím yet to find a diagram showing where it is so I can replace it. When I get home Iím going to go check the fuses. If anyone has any suggestions to what may have caused this or where to start in the attempt to get it to crank again I would really appreciate it.
