well, my car scared me senseless the other day, I was wondering what the hell happend.
I started my car and wasnt really paing attention. I only turned the key short, which usually isnt enough to start the car when the engine is cold. in any case, I though the engine was still off, since I didnt hear it because of blasting music. So just as a reflex I trun the key again.... well the engine was already on... usually ild expect an unfriedly rattering noise when I do that right? well this time I hurt a rediculusly loud bang and some smoke going down the right side of my car... I could not figure out where it came from. As soon as I got out of my car the smoke was gone... that was 3 days ago and the car has been acting completly normal since then, even right after that I started the car back up and it worked just fine. I havent noticed any leaks or visible damage, but it still scared me a lot... I thought I blew something.
Any idea what it could have been?
