Odd smell from engine


If you have been (revving the car/racing/accident/excessive speeding) you will smell something similar to burning oil from the engine, also if it has been more than 10,000kms (6000 mile) since last oil change you should get it serviced.

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6


It could be the handbrake, and easy to check. Next time you smell it, feel the nearside brake caliper or drum, then carefully touch the offside one. You will notice the difference in heat. Under normal use, they get warm, but if it is burning, it will too hot to touch.

Also look under the car for anything near or touching the exhaust. Check mud flaps if you have them that they are not touching the tyre when you are in motion.

I think you are on the right track with the hand brake/ parking brake. A vehicle can still drive if its slightly engaged and you would notice some sort of burning smell from the area. Try engaging the brake and disengaging the brake a few times and see if it releases completely. There may be an issue with the line causing it to "stick" here and there. Good luck! Cars are complicated but troubleshooting the small things before spending hundreds in labour is always wise!

Why does my car smell like burning rubber under the hood after i drove it for a while?


could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.

Smell of burning rubber rear offside wheel area


Hi there! Check out this link.
http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic175126.htm
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

While driving today I noticed a burning smell and when I got out the front right wheel had smoke coming from the rotor and brake assembly what sould I do


Sounds like either the brake caliper has seized up or one of the brake pads has got jammed up. You need to remove the caliper and investigate further. ICheck to make sure the piston/s in the caliper move. Also remove the brake pads , clean up the slides and apply some brake grease on the tips of the brake pad metal backs where the may contact with the caliper and mounting brackets.

A smell of burning rubber is coming from my engine. What is it? Could it be the timing belt? Is it safe to drive any distance? Thanks I have a burning rubber smell in my Subaru 2003 Outback, - any...


Check serpentine belt, the radidator hose , the air conditioner compressor and also the differential seal they common cause for rubber smell.

Check for any rubber part that can be in contact with exhaust system and inspect wirings looking for shorts.

Also ensure that the smell is not coming from a bad tyre, and check for oil leaks in your engine, burnt oil can be confused with rubbere smell.

2005 Chevy Impala exhaust smell


neither one of these would cause gas to leak. sure it is not coolant ? if you think it is gas it is not safe to drive car as it could catch on fire. possible cause would be a leaking injector.
