What would it be if I had a loud squeel and smoke when I parked. Smelled electrical from passengers side of Motor.


Asked by Jan 18, 2015 at 12:47 PM about the 2002 Chrysler Town & Country EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Now the engine rattles and whines when
idling. Sounds like something is loose on the
same side.

Sounds like the alternator has locked up. Is the battery light on? If so, the alternator is my first suspect. HTH. -Jim


Finally took it in and my AC compressor was locked up so that was burning rubber smell and the ugly whiny rattling sound..
