Sounds like you have a coolant or oil leak getting on exhaust manifold. seek service facility for inspection, can be a fire hazard.

Buick Regal supercharger 1998, while driving along the steering wheel tighten hard to turn, after pouring power steer fluid under the hood, the temperature light came on,the car ran hot, no smoke.


Do you mean the engine overheat warning? The power steering problem is most likely a defective steering rack, they always act up when hot due to internal seal leakage and fluid bypassing the seal.

Brake light, battery light, service engine soon light on. white smoke from under the hood. area near belts loud and I smelled burning rubber. put car in park the engine shut off. What's the problem?


If your battery light came on, and you smelled burning rubber, it could be that your belt that drives the alternator, which charges your battery is broken or flipped upside down. Do not drive with the battery light on or else you will stop dead when the battery does not have enough charge in it to keep the car running. If you decide to drive and not follow my advice, then be sure all extra electrical power is off eg. radio, fan, DVD, lights etc.

Zx2 98escort idles fine no smoke when u start down road pours white smoke


Hi Sherry, If the smoke is a whitish blue grey, Best observed while standing behind the car and while parked with the parking brake on and asking a friend to run the engine at about 2500 RPM. If the smoke is evident then it probably means that the piston rings are worn or damaged and the engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced. If you have had any overheating problems, it could also be a blown cylinder head gasket, which to repair is also a major job. Regards John

My 2001 Chrysler LHS started smoking from under the hood when I turned off car and poured out a brown fluid from underneath car...


Its probably old worn out antifreeze/coolant.. HOPEFULLY not oil...you need to contact a QUALIFIED professional...Hopefully new hoses, thermostat, (maybe water pump)and a good flushing will fix the problem..pray its not oil...you will need to have the car towed to the repair shop.. ask around..(friends, neighbors,(google search with GREAT reviews) and do not chose one at random...

Good luck..

Signs of power steering leak. smoke from under the hood on the driver side? 2 times this winter on -0 days after making a hard RH turn with in seconds i have smoke from under the hood and into the...


This may be as simple as a loose clamp on the powersteering return hose, you would need to put the car up and take a look at the powersteering lines or look for a stain or wet spot on fluid, if it smokes that bad then it must be hittting the exhaust, one problem ive seen is the rack leaks into the boots and when a hard turn is made and the boot closesit pushing the fluid out, so remove the clamp from each boot on the rack and see if oil runs out or just look and see if there oil on the boot ends, most of the time its one side that leaks.
