SOURCE: When i drive my 2001

It could be a lot of things...I would start by checking around all the exhaust to see if any wires, hoses etc have started rubbing. From there start checking all the wiring around the block. You need to figure out what is causing the smell or it will only get worse.

Try checking ubder the car and look at the exhaust system. A bag may have blew ubnder the car and had gotten caught on the hot exhaust system and melted.

Why does my car smell like burning rubber under the hood after i drove it for a while?


could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.

My heater works but is blowing a burnt rubber smell out of vents in a 1995 cadillac deville??? anybody kno? heater core??


Your blower motor could be overheating, but that usually smells like a distinct plastic burning. I's day its more likely a problem under your hood. I'd start with the belt and pulleys. Just pop the hood and look around your belt. If you see bits of rubber you found your problem. It will probably be a belt, pulley and/or tensioner that needs replacing.

What is the smell and does it have to be fixed?


A burning rubber smell under the hood might be just that - consider having your accessory drive belt inspected, as it is possible that a bearing in one of the accessories (alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, etc.) or in the tensioner mechanism might be failing. This sort of fault will often cause that particular accessory bearing to spin less freely than the others, and as a result the belt continues to pass over the associated pulley at the same speed as the engine. Essentially, the result is similar to a car spinning its tires on dry pavement - and a similar 'burning rubber' odor is the friction and heat of the rubberized belt.

If the odor is more like burning oil than burning rubber, the rear valve cover gasket is situated in a place that results in dripping oil, even small and unnoticable amounts, onto the exhaust manifold that is directly underneath the valve cover.

These two items might be places to start your inquiry. Best of luck to you!
