A bit of smoke and burning rubber smell 2.0 JTDm
So tonight I was driving along the motorway slowing down and I noticed what sounded like the exhaust rattling when foot off the throttle, this does happen when there are 4 people in the car as I guess its worked a tad loose.
Anyway I sit in the queue on the slip road, and notice some white smoke, thinking it was just coming out the back of the car in front I didn't pay much attention.
However car in front moved off and the smoke along with a burning rubber smell was coming from drivers side of engine bay. Not a lot of smoke mind.
I was only a few miles from home so kept on going, after I got moving the smell went along with the smoke, even when I was stuck in another queue.
Got home left it running on the drive but nothing further seen.
done a quick search on here and saw about aux pulley rubber going but that was with heavy steering, mine is fine.
Are there any rubber exhaust hangers at the front?
any other ideas?
It's a 2.0 JTDm btw.
