Today has to be the worst day of my life.My car won't start, it just whistles but no turn over noise at all. This is how it all happened, I was cleaning my TB with TB cleaner,put everything back together and took it for a spin,It drove fine.I pulled in the driveway and cut it off,I started it again,it wouldn't say anything, I tried it again and it started, but then at this time I noticed a white cloud of smoke come from under the hood on the back of the driver side near the manifold, and from out of the tailpipes. I heard something sounding like a pop or something break, thenit cut off, so I tried to start it again and nothing, it just whistles that's it. Can someone give me some advice??

The whistling sounds like a blown starter to me

Is the whistle more like a whizzing sound. Kinda like an Incredible Hulk Bumble Bee with hormone injections. I think right now I am agreeing with Xzauhst about it possibly being the starter. Does the sound seem to come from where the starter located?

Yep,that's exactly how it sounds. What would cause that to happen, just an old part I guess, glad it went out at home instead of out in the streets. It sounds like it's coming from where the starter is.
