SOURCE: Bad smell coming from heater/ smoke coming out vents

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

SOURCE: While driving today I noticed

Sounds like either the brake caliper has seized up or one of the brake pads has got jammed up. You need to remove the caliper and investigate further. ICheck to make sure the piston/s in the caliper move. Also remove the brake pads , clean up the slides and apply some brake grease on the tips of the brake pad metal backs where the may contact with the caliper and mounting brackets.

SOURCE: smells like brakes are burning

Have you ever changed Brake fluid?
1-After flushing out entire system, Flush out the newly changed calipers. throughly
2-Make sure the pistons on Calipers can move in and out easily by using brake clamp to check.
3- If you don't have pistons moved smoothly then you have bad calipers causing locked up then brake pad burning.

Hope this can help.

Burning smell and smoke coming from left tyre 1993 t oyota 4runner


This will likely be the left brake caliper piston is 'frozen' and cannot release once the brake peal is released after applying them. This causes overheating of the brake rotor, thus creating smoke, heat and smell. If you look at your rotor it is probably a blue color, which is not normal. However, in some cases the brake caliper that is frozen will not work and overloads the opposite side. The brake calipers must be checked for piston movement - by removing the caliper and trying to depress the piston back into its bore, if it will not depress the caliper must be replaced. The same holds true for the rear.

2004 sebring loosing brake fluid but not leaking onto the ground. Fill master cylinder w fluid and pressed brake for about 2 minutes and brake light came on and car began to smoke. Smoke had a burnt wood...


this is some information on the braking Fluid

Fluid

Damaged parts and a buildup of heat can break down the hydraulic fluid that is in the caliper, brake lines, and master cylinder. The fluid, DOT-3 for the Sebring, will go from a golden-yellow color to a dark brown or black when the particles are damaged from heat. A complete purge of the braking system is required, to replace all of the fluid. Usually, the caliper pistons are at fault, as the pads heat up they come closest to the fluid at the piston. This "cooks" the fluid, and as it is retracted back into the system (as it cools or the brakes are released), it causes the heat to travel into sensitive areas of the system. The seals in the master cylinder and power booster are prone to damage from heat. The fluid will lose its ability to maintain pressure, as it introduces air into the system and compresses.
the other smell could carbon oil that has leaked out of the cam cover seal this would not affect the oil level. but it will start to burn oil if the seal is not replaced. it could also be an antifreeze smell you could have a small leak and when pressure is built up it self seals under pressure, This could be the gasket on the thermostat housing or heat line. check these parts.

I have a Landcruiser VX 100 series HDJ101 and its taking out smoke and a burning smell from the front tires brakes. I changed the pads and skimmed the discs but the problem is still there. I have been told...


On the surface, it sounds like you've got a frozen brake caliper. Apart from smoke and a burning smell, you would notice the truck pulling to 1 side or another. Another symptom of a frozen caliper is decreased performance and mileage.

The van smells and the lug nuts are gettign burning hot after it is driven for only 10 minutes.


my best guess would be a brake pad or caliper that is sticking on the "on" position. This will cause the brake to generate a high amount of heat and it will heat up the lugnuts. the smell should smell like burning brakes because that is what is happening. the smell itself is hard to describe . if it gets extremely hot you will see smoke coming from the brake that is not working correctly. if it is one brake doing it the steering should also "pull" to the side of the problem. right wheel brake dragging will cause the vehicle to "pull" or verr to the right side.
