    i have a 1990 civic lx 4dr 5spd, and i havnt started it in about amonth because iv been away and so today i tried to start it and it wouldnt turn over, it was making a really loud sound, almost like a screeching sound, and when i tried to start it the belts werent moving fast, they were just creeping along. oh and when i first tried to start it some smoke came out. does anyone know what the problem is? and its not the battery cause thats 100%. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
