Hello, "puff of smoke" and car dying doesn't give any information of value. Testing of engine performance is required. Something is malfunctioning in either the fuel delivery system, the ignition system (spark), air intake system (too much or too little air to the engine compared to the ratio needed), engine timing or compression. Since the car will not start, hands on testing will easily reveal what element is missing, and then further testing will reveal the root cause and what is needed to repair it.
