Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
My car started smoking under the hood while I was in traffic, I pulled onto the curb lifted the hood and it was smoking from the drivers side. I filled it with water. The drivers side still was smoking and continues to smoke when the car is started. it smells like something burnt. Smoke is coming up from bottom beneath two rubber tubes, not exactly sure where its coming from, any ideas of what this could be?

SOURCE: Rubber smell and slight smoke
a rubber smell?? the best thing you can do is diagnose it properly by blocking it up high enough of the ground and let it smoke then slide yourself under there and see where it originates ... check for witness drip marks on the exhaust first??

You can tell by looking at dip stick if the oil has a creamy white substance there is antifreeze getting in oil (blown head gasket) or if ther is excessive white smoke coming from exhaust pipe upon acceleration. steam from under hood may be a coolant leak from a rubber hose or it may be leaking from the cylinder head onto the exhaust manifold also the car will be using up antifreeze.

Common problems for these cars is the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets and front crank seal. None of which are extremely expensive or hard to change, just time consuming. It would be typical for someone selling the car to steam clean the engine. Check the coolant resevoir for contaminants and level as well as the oil level and condition. Make sure that the oil filter used is an AC Delco. These will give you optimum and correct oil pressure. Not all filters are created equal! If you feel it may be a ring issue, check the exhaust for signs of black carbon build up and signs of cleaning. It is likely that it is an external leak. If you wish you may send me pics of the engine compartment to analyze and I can tell you where to photograph.
