Burning Smell


Recommended Posts

I'm have a burning smell coming from the front tire wheel well area. does not smell like oil, more like grease. I have taken it to the dealer and local garage. I have looked underneath of it with the techs, no axle boots torn. Undercarriage is bone dry, all fluid levels full. Anyone ever have this?

Drive the car for a while and then put your hand on the hub of your wheel and see if it is hot. If it is, you either have a caliper not releasing or a brake line that is not allowing the pressure to subside. If either one is your situation, it needs to be remedied.

If neither one is, then I would inspect the car while it is on a lift and try to do an up close sniff test to see if you can isolate the area.
