RE: [DML] Noise & Smell - something happened

  I would wager your throw-out bearing has given up the ghost. Mine did that, & boy it was a bit scary! Had the screeching when shifting, hot smell from the engine compartment, & a bit of smoke wafting up from behind the engine. Not an expensive part to replace, but a pain doing the tranny-drop thing.  Go ahead & replace the pilot bearing (~$4); depending on milage, overhaul the clutch plate & pressure plate, too.        Drive Stainless      Robert    VIN 6924

Tonight it happened again and the engine was making a real wierd noise. Then the car was consumed by what smelled like burning rubber. Any ideas? I think a belt in the engine compartment slipped off or something.
