Car Made a Weird Noise then Started smoking and smelled like burning

Asked by Aug 08, 2018 at 11:49 AM about the 2013 Ford Explorer

Question type: General

I automatic started my Ford Explorer this morning
and it made a really weird sputtering noise but did
turn on. Then I looked and there was a ton of
smoke coming from the back (I think) and it
smelled like burning. I turned the car off and it
stopped.
My step dad told me to try automatic starting it
again so I did and everything was fine. It sounded
fine when it started and there was no smoke or
burning smell.
What could the problem be?
