Question about 2004 Chrysler Voyager
Had heater on in car for a good while, then a squealing noise from under the bonnet briefly, then an acrid burning smell came into the car with smoke bellowing from under the bonnet of the car, i turned heater off and the smoke and noise stopped, i can see the smoke is coming from the front of the engine near the air con pump but i can't pinpoint the problem
If you were using the defrost mode, the air conditioner compressor comes on too. That is because it uses the air conditioner to remove moisture from the air so that the windows dont fog. IT could be the air conditioner compressor clutch assembly or the belt.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much, i was worried that this might be the problem, i had the pump reconditioned once before because of the same problem"
You more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

SOURCE: smoke from a side pipe
i think this the what they called the breather.
some cars are equipped with a pipe from the top cylinder head cover down to the side of the engine to blow straight down. some are used to go up against the air cleaner.
if it is blowing smoke and it is probably oily now, it would only indicate that there is already oil exhaust in your top cylinder head cover. could be a leaky valve guide seal.
watch your oil level. it may be consuming oil more than it should. could be a ring job too.
tnx 4 using fixya,

(check water/ antifreeze level first, make sure it's full, low water can cause it not to heat properly) it could possibly be either the thermostat- fairly cheap and easy to fix, great for DIY's- if that doesn't fix it, it could be heater core.
