Battery new and charged. Turns over slowly with plugs out. With plugs in Starter starts to smoke trying to start engine. Starter unable to
turn over fast enough to start engine. I am unable to turn over engine w/ 1/2" breaker bar 24" long at the crankshaft pulley. Have any experienced this situation? Are the timing chains without correct lube, A possible spun bearing, or something else. When I cranked it with plugs out using the starter it cranked somewhat slower than I would expect but I did not hear any unusual sounds like metal pieces hitting one another. Please advise. Thanks

I have a 2008 cadilac ctc model and when I try starting it up it won't start but what does the light of a car and lock on the dash lights mean and can I override it?

My car started making a metal on metal sounding banging, slapping noise. Happens at low speeds in drive or reverse, and happens when I am accelerating up to about 10/15mph, and starts to happen again when I'm coming to a stop and under 10/15mph. We replaced the carrier bearing and right drivers CV axle. When driving it, the steering wheel will shake a little, it makes the loud clunking banging noise, and seems to make the clunk as the driveshaft does its cycle. We are thinking its the driveshaft but trying to see if its something that's not so expensive. We checked the bolts as we replaced the carrier bearing. Not sure what it could be. I don't even want to drive it anywhere because the noise gets extremely loud. Especially when I'm coming from diving and slowing down and will shake the car.
Mine and my sons both leek exsisively from the rear part of the moon roof we have to put two buckets and remove back seat to get all the water out dose anyone else have this problem with the same car
