ive been keeping my 01 GT garaged this winter and starting it up every so often.
Yesterday (after about a month of sitting) I start it up, starts just fine, idling normal, idles a little higher for a second, then back to normal idle, nothing seems strange until i notice all of the smoke coming out from between the engine and the firewall. it definately had that electric smell to it. I shut it off, the smoke stops, look behind the engine where the smoke was coming from, see nothing black, dont even see any electrical components that would have been smoked. Jack up the car, get underneith and dont see much but the engine and trans, notice the starter but it/the solenoid or wire leads that i can see dont look black. I turn the key forward (not enough to start the car but just before that point where i can listen to the radio and etc) and seconds later, same deal, lots of smoke with electrical smell, but none inside the cabin at all. Before I started the car I was messing around with the radio (with the key forward) for about 5 minutes and had no smoke with the key forward then.
Its quite a bit of smoke and I have no idea where it is coming from. Any Ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
