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: my car smells like burning rubber whenever i turn it off

I am not really sure what your problem is but if you have over sized tires on the car when you turn you could be getting this smell or someone changed the oil in the car they got a lot of oil in the frame and while driving it is getting on the drive belt and that will also give off a burning rubber smell

SOURCE: Burning rubber smell inside car-2003 CTS Cadillac

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

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).

Engine died burning smell


If the smell is like burning oil or really hot coolant. you may have killed the motor. If it smells like burning plastic ,look for shorthing wires around the exhaust manifold battery, alternator or place that a wire could be burnt. If a rubber smell check for belt failure.

I have a burning rubber smell coming from left rear on my 2001 silverado after driving


You may have a stuck brake shoe. The smell is more likely a burning carbon smell, which would be the break pad itself. You will need to crawl under and see if any visible burn marks or burned wires are present. Outside that, move to the actual break. 1 possible sign would be large amount of "dust" on the wheel and around the actual break, more than with the other 3 wheels.

When i drive my 2001 Nissan Altima a smell of burning rubber permeates from underneath the hood and through the vents. What could be wrong?


It could be a lot of things...I would start by checking around all the exhaust to see if any wires, hoses etc have started rubbing. From there start checking all the wiring around the block. You need to figure out what is causing the smell or it will only get worse.
