Well I just put my starter on and went to crank to start it and has nothing. It has smoke comming out of the stacks. I need this damn thing to run. Any help is needed. The check engine light comes on when you crank but no other time.

Free bump since I have the same prob. Check your bat leads. After that GPs and GPR.

Well I went out after the rain and charging the battery cause it was dying from cranking it and it fired up. So I have no idea what the problem was but it is running fine now.

Low batt voltage.

Exact same thing happend to me, my truck was turning over fine, hooked up the jumper cables and it fired right up.

As stated above, clean the battery cables even if they look "clean"

No it was out in the shop but I figured I'd get a faster reply here. I cleaned them up and sprayed some protection on them too.
