Acura Tl won't start.

Asked by Nov 20, 2017 at 07:25 PM about the 2005 Acura TL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I stopped at a red light my car started to
smoke from under the hood and started making a
ticking sound. I pulled over to a gas station, then
the smoke started to go away, but to ticking and
knocking stood, so I turned off my car. When I tried
starting it again, it didn't want to start. The car
turned on along with the lights, radio, etc. But the
ignition wouldn't start, id have to give it gas just so
for to start, but it'll turn on soon after. For the few
seconds I got it to start, it'll knock, and I'll put it into
drive, but it'll just go back (because I was on a hill, I
think). About a week or two before a service
engine light was on saying b2, I think? Does
anyone know what's wrong?

That morning the battery was dead so I jumped it, and went AutoZone. I got the battery checked and they said it was perfectly fine, but he saw blue stuff splattered and leaking everywhere, and found out it was my coolant reservoir cap. Could that be the problem?

You don't think the motor blew? Everyone I know days that can be it, but they're not really I to cars to much.
