    Please define "it". Please provide some indication if you are talking about the engine compartment or trunk or under the car. Does this happen when the engine is running? When an appliance is on (like the air conditioner)

There is a loud noise near the alternator and after it runs it smells like something burning could it be air pump it has fairly new water pump and new alternator


i would check your tensioner and idler pulley. you may have a bad bearing and its dragging the belt causing friction which then creates the burning belt smell. remove your serpentine belt and spin all pulleys by hand p/s, alternator, water pump, tensioner, idler, a/c. if the pulley is stiff or feels rough then thats the component at fault and you would need to replace that certain component and its also best practice to replace your belt now too.

It sounds like you may have a problem belt or some kind of a problem with something turns on the belt Ican;t say for sure with seeing it but thats what i would look at first see if it looks melted or other wise distorted do this when engine is off

I have a grinding noise near the back drivers side wheel it comes and goes sometimes whilst driving and driving at low speeds it also happens when i go round corners. There is a burning smell near rear...


Sounds like a broken bearing. If your wheel is beginning to wobble it will make contact with the brake shoes and this will them very hot to the point of giving off a burning 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.

MPV 2001 burning smell, high whine?


Sound like the alternator bearings are seized or about to seize. The noise could be the bearings or the belt and the smell may be either of them also.
