Question about 2001 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

Smells like rubber is burning after I turn off my engine.

Over the past couple of months I have noticed that after my engine has turned off I can smell rubber burning. It reminds me of when in my old vehicles after they have overheated the smell of the hoses burning. Although, in this truck I have no problems of this nature.

My check engine light has come on and off for the past couple of weeks and I've noticed a burning smell after I turn the car off. What could this be?


Hi Cynthia
I believe that the engine light comes ON and OFF caused by a faulty O2 sensor or the catalyst converter is faulty (blocked or broken) witch also cause the burning smell.
My advise is to get your vehicle checked/ scanned by a technician, this is not a DIY job.
Good Luck.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning


If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

Burning smell


Could be the blower motor, or an oil leak in the engine compartment. When the hvac is on anything except recirculate, it draws fresh air in from the engine compartment. You could switch over to recir and see if the smell goes away.

Smoking from under hood


A leak of some fluid, probably oil, dripping onto the exhaust. This smells terrible, and it only needs a drop or two.

Why does my car smell like burning rubber under the hood after i drove it for a while?


could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.

2003 Jeep Liberty has burning smell when stopped. Have had MIL come on periodically the past 6 months but it would go away. The first time it came on I freaked and took Jeep into my mechanic. He told me a...


You need to find out what is causing the MIL (or CEL). Take it to an AutoZone or O'Reilly's and get the codes read. WRITE THEM DOWN, and report them back here.

I've got a '03 Jeep Cherokee, and one of the main issues I have had is bad evaporative emissions hoses. Chrysler used the wrong rubber formulation.

But, the burning smell could be a different issue altogether from the CEL issue, or may be combined. You will need to locate the source of the smell, and we can help you further.
I will say that if your not very mechanically inclined, you may have trouble diagnosing and making the repairs.
