Kevin, it sounds like your transmission is overheating under a load. Need to check you transmission fluid level. If it is black need it flushed and transmission checked.

SOURCE: A smell of burning rubber

A common cause of a smell like that is a coolant leak.Take a close look around the hoses,clamps, frost plugs and the water pump as it has a weep hole that will leek coolant if the seal is breached. Sometimes all you will see is a stain, but no coolant as small leeks boil away with the engines heat.
If a belt was burning it would be very noisy. The timing belt is cogged so slippage is unlikely. It is possible that a foreign object has gotten on the exhaust manifold like a plastic bag. One last thing I can think of is a wire or something touching a hot surface and melting. Good luck.

SOURCE: rubber burning smell and smoke

It sounds like a pulley froze up. Pop the hood have someone start the car while you are looking at the pulleys, you should be able to see the problem.

SOURCE: burning oil smell 03 montero sport

It's most likely the rear cam seals (o-rings) which is a pretty simply DIY, especially on the 3.5L model. The o-ring is only about $5.00 from the dealer (each, you need one for each side).

SOURCE: my 2001 hyundai elantra (automatic) loss power while driving

The check engine light usually comes on when there is a faulty sensor. or circuit. Sounds like you may have a faulty throttle position sensor. It would be best to have engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area. Many part stores do this for free.

2006 Hyundai Elantra with 2.0 automatic with 111000 miles. Car is hesitating and begins shaking going up steep hills. Problem seems the worst at around 3000 rpm going up hill. The car wont stop shaking...


There's many reasons this can happen, but start simple. Fuel pump may be failing. Usually under load they can not supply the fuel the engine is demanding. (Up hill acceleration is a classic example). change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't not correct the problem, test fuel system pressure. (:

Burn smell near tires and strange sound too


it will be one of two things...............either your brakes are sticking on slightly (frozen caliper) and its heating up because of the drag.................or the wheel bearings are shot and heating up when you drive it.................. that's all it can possibly be.
If you aren't good with the tools then its off to the garage for this issue.

Burning rubber smell whilst going up hill


This sounds like an oil leak. Look for leaks at valve covers, and other areas above the exhaust. It often is the burning off of this small volume of oil, that makes the smell like you describe. Inspect the whole exhaust...Something is melting, somewhere.

Bmw 330 has burning rubber smell when going up a steep hill. It happens when the auto changes down a gear and the smell goes when the car reaches the top.


This could be caused by two things. Your engine could be burning excess oil under strain which smells like burning rubber, and also the belt could be slipping causing the smell. The only other thing is the tires may be slipping if they are worn. This would cause very uneven wear on the tire so the last one would be very obvious.

Check engine light doesnt go out all belts changed still comes on


what kind of vehicle? what year? cause for about $40. or so, you can goto an auto parts store and get the OBD reader which conects to the computer under the dash in most cars and trucks anything prior to 1986 is OBD 1 anything AFTER SHOULD BE obd2 CHECK THE CODE to see what it tells you is wrong, that way you will know to be able to repair it. this will save you quite a bit of money to do it yourself then to be paying hourly rates to have a mechanic troubleshoot it all day. once you find out what code it is giving you for the check engine light, and get it repaired, you can use the OBD reader to reset the light.
