Question about 1998 Ford Mustang
After running my mustang for an hour, i smell coolant or trans fluid burning and smoke's coming out of corner closest to passenger side door. I dont know where the leaks coming from and the smoke is hard to see for me. It seems the smoke comes out most from bottom part of engine. your Help will be appreciated.
Try getting the freeze plugs checked out. =]

Two things to check for Bad head gasket or a bad rear seal on trans where the drive shaft slides into trans. Bad head gasket check collant level if your always adding coolant then you have a head gasket problem. Bad rear trans seal run the car on some ramps and look at the drive shaft going into the trans the wipe seal will have drips of fuild on it with over spray on exhaust system and floor of car. Cost to do it yourself trans seal about $20, head gaskets about $150's. If you can't do it and you have to take it in for head gaskets your looking at about $1800's or more. $1800 being the least amount. (3.8 Liters had head problems cause some one on the assembly line though it would be funny to put them on any old way.)

I would check to see if you have a lower heater hose leak. Sometimes the lower hose will get a pin hole and spray on the lower part of the exhaust causing the smoke, if it is trans fluid it could be the lines going to the trans fluid cooler those are the two lines i would check
