Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Ford focus 01 automatic. When heater was on a burning smell was coming from it after 5mins pulled over to check under bonnet but nothing was burning or smoking but when re-entered the car white smoke was coming out of the triangle vents probably as we closed all the others and when I turned on the fan it makes a banging noise. The resister pack was only replaced 2 months ago, could it be the ac/heater blower motor? If so how do I know which one is for my car?
The bearing in the blower motor is going out causing the noise and the smell is coming from the blower motor. the parts house will give you the right blower motor for your vehicle make and model and engine size.

SOURCE: Burning smell when ac is turn on
well as for the ford man sorry to here that. I am a holden man myself, but it is most likly that your fan switch is on its way out if you have a test light just pop the switch out and see if you have power to your high setting if not replace your switch. And for mgauthier I would suggest you just reroute your overflow pipe so it overflows onto the ground not onto hot metal parts. But you shouldn't have coolant coming out your overflow all the time. As for burning smell it was probably the switch burning out and failing.

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.
