Smoking steering wheel

Okay, my sister's car said when she is completely stopped at a stoplight smoke rolls out of the steering wheel. What could this be? Maybe water it needs or oil? Any help?

This could be Caused by a Shorted Wire or Relay inside the Steering Column and Couls start a Fire VERY Rapidly! She needs to get that car to a Qualified Mechanic and have the Electrical System Checked out with a Diagnostics Computer to Locate the Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    Anywhere between 12 Guage and 18 Guage Wire is Fine. You can get it on a Spool at Radio Shack.

    you can find the correct wiring instructions for this blower motor in the drivers manual or local auto parts shop.

    14 gauge should be sufficient.

    im thinking the wire you need for this blower is in the dash board. the previous owner was to lazy to find the correct wire. he took the easy road and almost torched this car. i would trace the motor wire from the actual blower. its probably wrapped with black electrical tape beneath the dash board. hope that helps ya:)

Buick Regal supercharger 1998, while driving along the steering wheel tighten hard to turn, after pouring power steer fluid under the hood, the temperature light came on,the car ran hot, no smoke.


Do you mean the engine overheat warning? The power steering problem is most likely a defective steering rack, they always act up when hot due to internal seal leakage and fluid bypassing the seal.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

Does transmission jump out of any gear?

General condition ie: accident damage, tyre wear even, tested recently ?

Brakes stop car without pulling to one side.

Does car drift off center along a straight road above 30 mph?

Seat belts operate ?

Steering gear loose or worn? Must be less than 5mm free play side to side on steering wheel at 12 o'clock..

Steering wheel solid mounted...lower support bearing okay ? They drop out around the steering shaft.

All lights work including high and low beam?

Brake lamps working?

Windshield free of cracks and chips and not scored by old wipers.

Pull up carpet and inspect for corrosion in floor pan and in trunk ( boot.)

Last week my 1984 nissan truck started smoking. It clears up and started smoking again the next day. That same day I put in brake fluid and power steering fluid before it started smoking. My brother in...


It's possible you overfilled the power steering reservoir or perhaps spilled some that leaked down on the exhaust manifold. That would cause a lot of smoke until it burned off.

The air in my car smells bad from smoking is there a filter i can change


No filter but Oust works pretty good if you spray it into the passenger side floor to have the a/c return **** it up and back through the vents.

Power steering noise


Sounds to me that the power steering belt is loose. If it is a 2.4 litre engine it has two serpentine belts. You should replace the belts especially if it was smoking.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo started smoking!


Fill the rad and check for leaks. Bring the engine temp up to normal, if necessary. Try not to spill any water when filling the rad, if you do, let it dry before starting the car, JKust makes it easier to find the leak. Frankster016
