2004 and surband. From a dead stop, acts like something is locking up, then quickly quits, but makes noise from the front end


If this is a 2 wheel drive vehicle, then you could have a wheel bearing issue, or more commonly, brake caliper issues.

Do you smell a burnt smell from the wheels? Does the vehicle pull when you apply the brake? Check the pads to see if there's more wear on one side than the other side of the vehicle, as that is also a sign of a sticking caliper. Also a brake hose can start to disintegrate inside of itself causing rubber to block the flow of the brake fluid, so it's a good idea to replace them with the calipers too.

When I switch my 2005 envoy xl into all whell drive and then drive, when I get out it smells like burnt rubber. It does not smell like that when in 2wd. What could it be?


You can't use 4 wheel on dry or even wet pavement. It must be snow dirt gravel or mud. Pavement will just burn up your tires because the front Axel pulls faster than the rear. When you have good grip there is a friction fight between front and rear tires.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

When i turn the wheel my car makes a loud noise and smokes, it smells like burnt rubber, is it safe to drive it


Sounds like the power steering pump is locking up and the belt is slipping. Get it checked out before you drive it.

2001ford escape burning rubber smell and noise


Check the rear upper strut towers. These are notorious for rusting out, and causing the tire to hit the inner fender well. To my knowledge, no recall on this, but I've fixed a few with a rear quarter panel replacement from rock auto. You wouldn't notice it much on the rear of the vehicle. Smell the rear fender wells for burnt rubber odor.

Burnt smell from rear wheel well on 99 bravada after driving


Could be a stuck parking brake or a leaking wheel seal letting gear oil onto brakes. look at inside of rear wheels, if you see wet oil on backing plates, it's the seal. and nees to be replaced.

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!
