My 1997 subaru impreza squeals badly and then engine smokes

Hi this sounds weird does the smoke come out from the front engine covers? the squealing could be the cambelt trying to turn a semi or completly ceased waterpump which would cause the smoke after a while, also without the waterpump working properly the engine will leak water and anti freeze out the overflow and overheat really quickly

Subaru impreza wrx sti 1997 555 v limited. cut out. wudnt start. now runs but only on 1 cylinder

hi check the exaust for smoke if its smoking a white or a blue smoke it means the motor is worn, but i would try changing the ignitor or ecu 1st as they send the ignition pulse telling the cylinders to spark, if either is stuffed that could cause your problem

Smoke from the left side of the engine

probably leaking rocker cover gasket ,oil slowly lands on exhaust,ive got one and had exactly the same symptoms and rocker cover gaskets were the issue
