Problems starting a 88 13b

07-29-2006, 07:38 PM
Ok this is a freind's car, he really hasn't worked on it since he bought it, and it didnt ran before he bought it... Well, i tried cranking it, and it wouldnt crank at first, ingition sounds fine by the way. After a couple of tries, it finally cranked, and a HUGE ASS cloud of smoke white smoke came out the exuast, and some out of the engine bay, and it ran for a couple of seconds before it cut off. Then it took a couple of tries again to get it to crank for a couple of seconds again. After that it hasnt cranked since, well i really havent tried to crank it to much. But i dont know what the problem is, my freind said he cleaned the spark plugs. Well any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

try this.put some atf in the lower spark plug holes.put about a 1/4 cup in each hole.let it set for a couple of days and start it up might have carbon lock and sometimes this will smoke very bad for a couple of mins.but it will be o.k.
