Sounds like you got a calipure problem... if its rear wheel disc those calipures are natorious for freezing up on the lower slider (jsut repaird gf rear breaks and couldent even slide the calipure off the mounting bracket it was so rusted) if you can get it off try cleaning the slider really well.. and lubing it good.. but i wouldent reconmend it since it alreay been rusted up that bad calipures should just be replaced and when thier only 125 a side its not worth **** around and having to do this again in the future cuz of a temporary fix.

at first,try to add coolant slowly to the radiator not to the reservoir,then start the car ,keep adding coolant on it ,until it is very full.u should see the radiator fan should be also running ,then that is the right tempature.drive a little bit & observe the tempature is the normal or not."""but if u have a coolang pressure tester""",u should do a pressure test & see any leak.it might somewhere in cooling sytem leak.hope it wasn't too late,it might cause head gasket burn,it will turn out a big job.

Smoking out the back and burning smell inside.


check for a cracked head that smoke you see is probably antifreeze coming out of the coolant trench in the block itself or could just be a bad gasket on your head

White smoke and the smell of burning rubber. I have had lots maintenance of work done to my car. I was starting to notice and smell burn oil. I had a small valve cover leak so I just had the whole...


Bradley,
You have stated two problems. Coming to second first. Smell of burning rubber. in the car rubber is only at two places where it can burn, The tyres, unlikely as you have not commented upon your driving habits. Some people like to rev the engine so much before take off that the tyres go burning for the first few hundred meters. And then there is rubber on the wires and cables. You have to check the wires for any heat while the engine is running.
Coming to the first now. White smoke is generally of unburnt fiel and not oil. Oil alwayd give black smoke and that is the indication you get when the exhaust is giving black smoke. That means that the engine is consuming oil. if it is white then that indicates that the engine is cold and burning more gas/diesel. Is your a diesel vehicle?? But as you say it from under the hood. And that too behind the engine block. May be that the gasket is leaking from somewhere. If you could check the engine oil level for a few days early in the morning before starting the engine. If the level drops and the exhaust tail pipe does not blacken your finger when you rub it in it would mean that the oil is being burnt. Now what I suggest is that with the engine running and hand brakes on, go under the car with hood open and try to locate the source of the smoke. I am sure you would be able to locate it.
Then we talk again.

Mazda 6 2001, IBS and handbrake warning lights keeps coming on


Check brake fluid level.  If fluid level is low, it can cause lights to flicker on and off while driving.
