Good morning, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this today.

When you say it smokes with the battery hooked up, is the smoke coming from the battery posts?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are many possible causes for the engine dying and it's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. The no start condition may or may not be related to the smoke.

If there is smoke that starts when the battery is reconnected you're going to need to start by determining where the smoke is coming from and repair that issue and then go from there. If simply hooking the battery up is causing smoke from under the engine then it's likely that the problem is with either the starter, it's positive cable possibly another circuit with a constant battery feed has shorted to ground for whatever reason.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
