My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise


Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

Clothes washer tub spins on wash


sounds like u have a problem with the "brain". The agitator and spin cycle should never run at the same time. therefore it leads me to A: brain issue B:problem in the actual transmission of what cycle should be running. You will continue to smell the burning rubber due to the issue being one of the two explained above. Does it ever NOT spin? If this is the case the likely hood is that it will be a solenoid.

Mazda 626 2002 smells like burning rubber


This is not good. Sounds like the heater fan bearing and/or resistor is burning out. Not familiar with your heater fan location, but most will be removeable from engine compartment.

Just remove it and spin it by hand or hook auxillary power to it to test. Some autoparts stores can test it for you. Stuff a rag in the opening to block fumes if this must be driven for parts run.

Burnt rubber smell when backing up


Sounds like your rear brakes aren't releasing quick enough, and the burnt smell of rubber would be your rear tires almost skidding on the ground without making the screeching sound.

Will a failing power steering pump smell like burnt rubber ? One line seems to be leaking but the smell seems wrong.


If the pump is starting to seize up, the belt maybe slipping on the pump pulley, causing the burnt rubber smell.

Noisey and recently smells like rubber. maybe a/c


You may have a frozen bearing on the tensioner or belt idler. This will cause the belt to burn and smell. I think you are on the right track. I would remove the belt and spin the idler and adjuster by hand to see that they are free and don't have excessive play in them. Replace as necessary.
