Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hi Charlie, my name is Jason.
Can you tell specifically where the smoke was coming from? Is there any chance you got the positive and negative cables backwards on the battery?
Are you still with me?
If you go to start it now will the engine start? Will there be any smoke if you try again?
The only things that would normally smoke would be the starter if it was bad. The battery cables if they had a poor connection at either end, and this goes for both power and the ground cable. And finally if the cables were rotten internally that can cause the cables themselves to burn up as all that current tries to push through the cable rot. Those would be the only things that would "normally" cause a lot of smoke.Did you have any further questions for me on the issue?
If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Yes of course, there are never any time limits here and you are always welcome to reply back at any time, even after doing the ratings
Well, you only asked vague generic questions. If you have specific questions that you do not know the answers to I will be happy to answer them.
Hello. Just checking in. Any progress?
You are very welcome. The ratings box is located at the top of your screen, if you do not see it you might have to scroll up. If you still can not see it, or have a hard time when trying to select a rating for my help, please let me know and I will alert the moderators.
Thanks again and good luck!
If you don't want to pay me for the time I spent with you then just say so.
That's because a shim wouldn't cause a smoke issue. You paid the website 50 dollars to speak with me, if you have a question about your deposit you can talk to customer service about it.
