My 2004 CTS (basic v-6) died
It died after leaving the interstate. Sounded like a dead battery. So I jumped it and smoke came out from the left side of the motor
Was car over heating?
No - not at all. There was a burnt smell after the smoke appeared.
I had an issue with a coil pack that did the same thing to me, but mine would start back up and then start smoking badly. I replaced the coil pack and plug and then later all the coil packs and plugs and it drove fine. Once you replace one, they will all in a row start going.
Put it on a computer and see what error message it sends
