hey Becky-- It might be the starter, but I don't like hearing about the smoke coming out from underneath. I don't know what you are talking about when you say you left it umplugged. You from Alaska or something? I think you need a professional to look at your car, not some relative with good intentions. Replacing the starter is an expensive job only to find out that it wasn't the problem after all. If you want a look at what you face replacing the starter, go to the following site-- http://autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?ForwardPage=/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/0e/f4/f4/0900823d800ef4f4.jsp. Good luck from Bovan.
