Take foot off gas, tire is smoking because of your lead foot. smoking tire means your burning the rubber off it. if you need to 4 wheel out of something put the machine in gear number one and creep out of said hole or whatever at a very very low speed. to 4 wheel you must be going very slowly and methodically or your gonna burn our your clutch, torque converter, transmission or all of the above very quickly.

Sounds expensive. Blue smoke usually means oil in the combustion chambers, from worn out rings. Anti-freeze inside means leaking hoses or heater core. Not sure where the driver-side tire comes into this, unless that is where the smoke is coming from, in which case that likely a problem with a seized brake caliper.

My 2003 Chevrolet cavalier drivers side tire is ssmoking and water dripping in side my front passenger side what do this mean

I\'ll treat the 2 problems separately, then as a unit. 1) Smoking tire. You have a really bad out of aligned tire. It scrubs the pavement and starts smoking. Have your rim and suspension on the corner checked at a quality shop. 2) Water inside passenger side. Do you smell antifreeze? This means your heater core or the hoses to it are leaking. If it\'s plain water and only leaks when raining your windshield seal is gone or the seal around your door. There is also spot and parts at the firewall where stuff can break and allow water t splash in. Now together. It sounds as though someone (you or someone else) drove your little car and "curbed" it really bad and has done significant damage to the front suspension and probably "racked" the body which would break the windshield seal. That is why I don\'t loan my car to anyone. The one and only time I did got broadsided. This was in 1973.

Burn smell near tires and strange sound too

it will be one of two things...............either your brakes are sticking on slightly (frozen caliper) and its heating up because of the drag.................or the wheel bearings are shot and heating up when you drive it.................. that's all it can possibly be.
If you aren't good with the tools then its off to the garage for this issue.
