    My husband has the same problem with his 99 bravada. He took it in and they said it was the catalytic converter falling apart.It rusted. Guess what? He still has the noise. He has had nothing but trouble with this car. Now they said the noise is somewhere in the engine. He told them to forget it. He's dumping the car and getting another.

SOURCE: Key will not come out. Battery light stays on.

your shifter is not aligned properly this condition indicates that the shifter has placed the transmission in park but just barely it needs like maybe 2 more millimeters of travel.

SOURCE: 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette shifts into gear hard

try having your transmission filter changed there only about 15 - 20 bucks but you will have to buy transmission fluid. ive seen that solve that problem in a few vechiles. if you do it yourself there is a magnet located in the transmission pan that you have to remove to change the filter and if it is full of metal shavings i suggest asking a local transmission shop about having trouble with that type of vechicle

SOURCE: starts hard and rattle noise under car

I have had both of these situations happen to me and they are completely unrelated.

The Rattle: If you have the factory wheels with the olds center caps, take them off. My husband tightened every screw on the car until he took the center caps off my wheels, and lo and behold, NO MORE RATTLE.

The Hard Starting: If you notice it starts hard and the RPMs are high, your throttle cable is sticking. I have this exact same problem with my 99 Intrigue GLS. The only way I can get it to quit is start and restart the car until it quits. Obviously not the best solution, but I would check your cable first before trying anything else.

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.

When i turn the wheel my car makes a loud noise and smokes, it smells like burnt rubber, is it safe to drive it


Sounds like the power steering pump is locking up and the belt is slipping. Get it checked out before you drive it.

2001ford escape burning rubber smell and noise


Check the rear upper strut towers. These are notorious for rusting out, and causing the tire to hit the inner fender well. To my knowledge, no recall on this, but I've fixed a few with a rear quarter panel replacement from rock auto. You wouldn't notice it much on the rear of the vehicle. Smell the rear fender wells for burnt rubber odor.

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise


Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

Honda passport problem


The louder noise and burnt smell possibly was the bearing getting worse, or going out, causing the belt to slip over the pullet and start heating up.
Was it a burnt rubber smell?

I don't see how this could have anything to do with the flywheel though.

It goes into reverse hard, then makes a banging noise and pops out of gear


Could have bad shift fork (bent or worn) could also be worn syncro gears . If your doing the work yourself . Look for discoloration on the syncro's burnt fluid smell and metal dust or pieces in bottom of tranny.

Noisey and recently smells like rubber. maybe a/c


You may have a frozen bearing on the tensioner or belt idler. This will cause the belt to burn and smell. I think you are on the right track. I would remove the belt and spin the idler and adjuster by hand to see that they are free and don't have excessive play in them. Replace as necessary.
