Hi everyone...newbie here. I have an 08 gas Smart up here Canada. It has 83K kms/ 51K miles. Here are the following issues:
- It fires up on a cold start, then sputters/farts and shuts off. Restart and she's good to go. Sometimes I will get a engine light w/ P301/2/3. Swapped coil packs and cleaned plugs, it seemed to help but will still sputter and fart then shut off only when cold, I.e. first thing in the am.
- Secondly, again when I fire it up first thing in the am, there is a high pitched WHIRL...its not the starter hanging up...lol, the starter does hang up...that's another issue. The high pitch WHIRL lasts from 10-15 sec and then shuts off. Thoughts?
- As stated above, starter occasionally hangs up. Solenoid? Ignition switch?
- AC compressor does not switch on. Fuses and relay good. Thoughts?
