If your car turns over just fine but shakes while it’s running, there could be a few things wrong with it. Unless you really know what you’re doing under the hood, you should have a qualified mechanic diagnose and repair these problems.
No matter what color smoke you see, there’s bad news. White smoke can indicate a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head, both serious, potentially car-killing problems. Blue smoke usually means you have worn valves or piston rings leaking oil into the combustion area of the engine. Black smoke can mean many things.
If you notice your car is rapidly heating up or is getting hotter than normal, possibly overheating, there are a few things to check first. Your cooling system may have leaks, a lack of coolant or even the wrong coolant blend. Other than that, you should talk to a mechanic.
A pitch-black oil puddle on the concrete whenever you back your car up, it’s an unfortunate sign that something is wrong with your vehicle. This is often an indicator of something serious that an experienced mechanic needs to examine.
If a yellow “check engine” light appears on your dashboard , you should get your car to the garage for a service as soon as possible as there are a range of engine problems that this light could indicate.
