My guess would be you either have an oil leak that is causing the smell and causing the serpentine belt to slip, or you have a pulley for the serpentine belt that is not spinning freely and causing the belt to slip. A slipping belt can also cause the burning smell that you describe. You might have a AC compressor clutch that is failing and not freewheeling correctly, you could have an alternator with a bad bearing, you could have an idler pulley or tensioner pulley with a bad bearing, etc. I'd certainly be checking for an oil leak as well though.

Burning smell


vechicle could be burning oil.or look under hood for valve cover gasket leaks. oil leaking on hot engine and exhaust manifold will cause burn smell.check drive belt could be slipping.make sure brakes not dragging or if you replace brakes pads you will smell burn smell until new brake shoes or pads break in.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

My wife drove my 1992 Honda Accord for approximately 4-5 miles with oil light on. Turns out the car was leaking.leaking its oil from timing chain area. Is there any engine damage?


Possibly, but I'd replace the leaking gasket/seal.
Also note, the Honda uses a timing belt (not a chain), and you don't want oil on the belt. If there's a chance the belt has gotten oil on it, you want to take the timing belt cover off, remove the belt, and clean all the oil covered parts. The oil can wear out the belt as well as cause the belt to slip timing

I have a 1997 Toyota Corolla, it sounds as if the belts are slipping and I'd like to replace them myself. From doing some research it seems that there are 3 belts: alternator belt, power steering belt and...


Well if your sure that it really is the belts the job isnt too hard. Refer to your owners manual for a clear view on how to replace them. I feel that every car owner should own a car manual for the car that they own cause they really do come in handy and are very informative. My question for you is how did you determine that it is your belts that are making the slipping sound? An oil pump that is no longer pumping oil will cause your engine to make almost the same sound and the squeal that you hear is the cylinders lacking lubrication. You might want to check your oil pressure just in case.

Slight squeeky noise when I turn the steering wheel and a little more stiff to turn.


Hi the steering pump uses a belt to drive it, when this gets stretched it will slip, oil can also get on the belt causing it to slip, so check the belt, make sure it is tight and free from oil, also make sure the power pump reservoir has oil at the same time

Oil pump is leaking on 1996 toyota camry, 2.2 lt


Since your friend just replaced the timing belt, there wouldn't be a need to replace the oil pump O-ring and crankshaft seal unless they were leaking.

No, you cannot get to the oil pump unless the crankshaft, lower timing belt cover and belt are removed.

I have the same exact car with the same engine and just replaced the oil pump O-ring and crankshaft seal. I'm a good mechanic, but this is a tedious and time consuming job, but It can be done if you have good mechanic skills.


VERY IMPORTANT.
There is a big chance that the car's engine timing will be off, have someone who is knowledgeable to set the engine timing. If you don't and try to start the car, serious engine damage will probably occur.

ALSO IMPORTANT.
When you get the oil pump off removed all the old O-ring the new oil ring will not stay in place, I used petroleum jelly to keep the ring in place, it's perfectly safe and won't affect the operation of the oil pump.

If your not sure you can do the repair yourself, take it to a mechanic.
