Question about 1991 Toyota Camry
I was driving at about 50-55mph and I noticed the steering wheel vibrate which was very noticeable. When I slowed down the vibration stopped and there was an odor.
This could be a few things. if the odor was of rotton eggs...it's either a broken/loose motor mount that shakes the exhaust system causing the catalyitic converter to make that smell, or, in a worse case, its your transmission overheating and burning up ATF (automatic transmission fluid) and this is causing the torque converter plates to rotate out of harmony with each other causing the vibration. if the smell is more a burnt rubber, it's much more likely you have a timing issue or a worn main bearing on your crankshaft. this causes vibration and wear on the belts causing them to "burn" or emit that burnout smell. either way, take it to your mechanic right away because none of these problems will end well if left unattended. good luck!
