Check under the car to see if you ran over something plastic and it stuck on your muffler system and melted

2002 Ford taurus, 110K miles died while sitting in trafic. It restarted like nothing was wrong. The car runs perfect and does not act like anything is wrong, no abnormal noise but i do notice a burned oil...


Sounds like a fuel issue - air inline and or moisture. This time of year with big temperature swings, condensation forms in fuel tanks and eventually mixes w/fuel and engine try to burn diluted gas/water.
Basically your car "coughed". Try a bottle of STP gas treatment and if it hasn't been replaced in recent history, replace your fuel filter.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

You most likely either have a loose belt and it smells like burning rubber or you have a small animal caught in the belts.
Replace or tighten the belts and you will be happy

Transmission!


Transmission problems in the RX300 are common for those who never flush the transmission fluid. I would strongly urge you to quit driving your RX300 and get it to a dealership where they can flush the transmission fluid. There is no transmission fluid filter (per say) but there is a "screen" inside the transmission that needs to be flushed out (this serves as the filter). Pull out your dipstick for the transmission and smell the transmission fluid - does it smell burned? I hope not, but regardless, take it to a dealership and get the tranny flushed and see if that makes a difference. Also, continue to flush the transmission every 60,000 miles at most! Lexus says that you do not need to flush the transmission, but I think you do. I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and I have had no problems with the tranny and I've flushed it at 60,000 miles and then again at 115,000 miles. I now have just a little over 120,000 on it. It's a good running vehicle but you need to care for it!

Bad sounds, bad smells from 94 ford explorer


Sounds like you may have a vacuum line off or ruptured going to the EGR valve. The burning smell is probably the catalytic converter. When the engine runs rich you will get a sulfur smell that smells sort of like rotten eggs.
