Hi

is it back or front? sounds like a caliper is sticking so the brake pad is rubbing on the disc, it would be easy to see which one as the disc would be glowing red or red-er than the others, thats assuming it is a brake disc and not drum version as on the rear.

please clarify, any fault with the car noise etc still driving ok?

Regards

Dan

What is wrong with my transmission goes into forward fine but reverse quit without any warning


The reverse bands can break without leaving a burning smell. The instant you put it in reverse, there is a sudden torque as the slack comes out of the drive train, so when it comes tight it can break without slipping or any other warning.

I have a burning rubber smell coming from left rear on my 2001 silverado after driving


You may have a stuck brake shoe. The smell is more likely a burning carbon smell, which would be the break pad itself. You will need to crawl under and see if any visible burn marks or burned wires are present. Outside that, move to the actual break. 1 possible sign would be large amount of "dust" on the wheel and around the actual break, more than with the other 3 wheels.

Fluid leak on inside of rear driver side tire


More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.

Fuel smell in camaro


50 miles reduction in the conditions mentioned means that your economy is about right
there is a small hose back from the tank to under the cap to release air trapped when filling
koses can get loose , crack or break
tank sender units gaskets can break down
look around the tank area for the leak /smell
a damp patch in the dust is a good give away
