Question about Mercury Cars & Trucks
About 160,000 miles. Car shakes in steering when braking or going about 60 or more.
Oil residue from a large leak can take a long time to burn off, but it should be OK after a few months. You may be smelling the tires, and you did say it smells like "burning rubber" so make sure the tires are not rubbing on anything.

If it "RED" in color, like p/s fluid, and coming from the BOOT, then its your p/s rack assembly.The unit has to be replaced and alignment reset. ..also check the HOSES they are prone to leak also...hope this helped..GL

Try getting your tire balaced as you ight have a tire that has seperated from the inner wall, as it sits overnight it will cool down then when you drive it the rubber sofens and the vibration will improve. I have had water in the tire too but i don't think thats your problem.
hope this helps.

It sounds like your heater core is leaking. Check to see if you are losing coolant, are smell like antifreeze???? With 190,000-miles this could be what your smelling??? Just a though???

That's good News! it means your A.B.S. system is working correctly, I know what you mean as it frightened me the first time in my 960, made a gruff gruff grinding noise and pulsing through the footbrake pedal, I drive a B.M.W. touring and in the recent snow I was pleased to feel a similar thing.
Hope this takes out your worries!
As for the smell, have your brakes examined for wear.
