Use fan and keep ac off not to run down your engine. Compressor must have gone bad.

When it comes on, where are you seeing the black smoke? What it sounds like is your serpentine belt is burning, this could be caused by the clutch pully on your compressor, or the idle pully for the belt. I would get it checked out as soon as possible, and do not run the ac, as you could become stranded and need a tow.

Burning smell


sound like you have had a circuit over load from a short and now there will be burnt wires under the dash . Check for what wires have burnt and then check the fuse size for that circuit as it should have burnt out before the wires did.

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.

Burning plastic smell and white smoke inside car


it will be burnt wire and around the ignition switch
burnt wires are obvious but be smart
only an accredited auto electrician should be used to locate the wire/s so don't let your boyfriend start or it will cost more in the long term and will still not be fixed

Blowing white smoke


White smoke usually means burning coolant - like a cracked head or leaking head

I have a 1998 Expedition Eddie Bauer 2wd 5.4L. I was driving down the road the other day w/o any air or heat turned on, and a foul smell started coming out of the vents where the ac and heater air come out...


something near the a/c vent (under your hood) started to burn or burnt something stuck in there like leaves or plastic etc. check your lines and fuels, make sure nothing's leaking or dried up.

Noises an smoke


its kind of hard to say on the whining noise - could just be a belt. Try spray WD40 on your belts when its idling and see if the noise lessens or goes away. If you have smoke coming out of your exhaust you need to determine the color / smell of the smoke. If it is white / light gray colored and "sweet" smelling then you are burning coolant which means you probably have a cracked head gasket. If it appears blueish and is "burnt" smelling then you are burning oil which means you may have a worn seal, gasket, o-ring, etc. If is dark / black colored then your fuel mixture is too rich which could be a bad O2 sensor, fuel pump, or fuel injectors.

Automobile problem


Check and make sure that you didn't pick up anything like a plastic bag on you exhaust system(maybe burnt on pipes looks dark brown or black) before you check any thing else. Good luck, contact if you need more help.
