Question about 1995 Mazda 626
My 1995 Mazda 626 V6 is smoking under the hood around the engine. Not billowing smoke, but definitely smoke when engine is running and accelerated. No oil or fluid spills. Fluids are all full. Car temp gauge is not overheating. Battery was completely drained after parking it overnight following detection of smoke. Can you tell me what I should be looking for?
Hello! + 12 volts of battery is making resistive contact with ground...During day light...Look for burnt components in engine compartment...Use your sense of smell to help localize...If you do not see/smell anything...Charge or replace the battery...Inspect the + battery connection to the starter motor to insure it isn't close to chassis ground...Start the car after dark and look for sparking or arcing...If it begins to smoke...Zero in with a bright light to locate the burning component...Don't spend a lot of time doing this...Leave the + battery connection finger tight in order to remove quickly...Following this procedure should point you to the area causing the problem...
