Have your obd II CODES READ this will give you more of an idea what is going on with it. most auto parts stores read these codes. If you are smelling rubber check your serpitine belt for where and if it looks good take the belt loose and check the rest of the components that the serptine belt runs on altinator, water pump,powersteering pump, pully tensioner, other pullys ext.

Brake light, battery light, service engine soon light on. white smoke from under the hood. area near belts loud and I smelled burning rubber. put car in park the engine shut off. What's the problem?


If your battery light came on, and you smelled burning rubber, it could be that your belt that drives the alternator, which charges your battery is broken or flipped upside down. Do not drive with the battery light on or else you will stop dead when the battery does not have enough charge in it to keep the car running. If you decide to drive and not follow my advice, then be sure all extra electrical power is off eg. radio, fan, DVD, lights etc.

Burning rubber smell after driving 5 miles in 2005 ford escape,also check engine light stays on


Could it be your clutch? It could be slipping., Revving higher than it should when changing gear? Put it in a higher gear when driving at a slow speed like 20 if it is revving when you put your foot to the floor but the speed is not matching it. The clutch could be on its way out.

"Service" light just started coming on over the weekend. It comes on, stays on for about 5-10 minutes, then goes off. The other lights - check engine (I think), oil, etc. - come on when I turn on the car...


The light is set to light by milage and it is to let you know that the next service is due. This is reset by removing the rubber grommet that is to the left lower corner of the speedometer and depress the reset button.

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.

Have a 2003 Cadillac CTS that I first smelled a rubber burning smell come out of a/c vent while sitting at the light only. Then today went to go home and heard all familiar noises when you start a car but...


Hello, I dont know if I can help you or not but this is what was going on with my car: It had the same smell coming out after the car was warm enough. It smelled like rubber burning. I took it to the GM Goodwrench and they thought it was just a loose nut that caused an oil leak. So they fixed that but it still had that smell. We discovered it was our power steering fluid leaking onto the engine. Now maybe your smell is from leaking transmittion fluid and the car's security systems are a pain in the ****. They will lock the car from starting if it thinks you hurt the car. I dont know if this helped but I hope it did.
