Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
My 2002 Hyundai Elantra has been having a strong burn smell coming from tire areas. Today, a strange faint chirping sound also started coming from one of the tires where smell is conning from (back driver side). But front driver side tire also smells burnt after driving. Any advice?
It will be one of two things...............either your brakes are sticking on slightly (frozen caliper) and its heating up because of the drag.................or the wheel bearings are shot and heating up when you drive it.................. that's all it can possibly be.
If you aren't good with the tools then its off to the garage for this issue.

take foot off gas, tire is smoking because of your lead foot. smoking tire means your burning the rubber off it. if you need to 4 wheel out of something put the machine in gear number one and creep out of said hole or whatever at a very very low speed. to 4 wheel you must be going very slowly and methodically or your gonna burn our your clutch, torque converter, transmission or all of the above very quickly.

SOURCE: FRONT TIRES AND ENGINE.
The tire noise will be due to the car needing a wheel alignment, just take it down to your local tyre dealer and they will check it for you if you are not sure.
As for the burning smell, if it's coming from the engine it could be a simple oil leak leaking onto the exhaust or could be more serious like worn rings or valve guides.

you could have bent the strut or the lower control arm. or the ball joint. you can find most of these at a salvage yard to save money but after fix you will need alignment.

Maybe the emergency brake is too tight. Or maybe a brake is grabbing, and not releasing. Have it checked right away, cause that is pretty close to the gas tank.
