my 2001 honda accord is throwing out smoke that smells burnt when I drive, but the gauge does not show over heating.

Asked by Sep 26, 2014 at 09:52 AM about the 2001 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For the past two days I have noticed that when I drive my car starts to throw out smoke on the passenger side of the car, and the smoke and smells like something burning. The gauge in car stays in the middle and does not indicate that the car is over heating. Can someone guide me as to what the problem may be? Thanks

have you looked under the hood yet

yes but I do not see any hoses off or broken. I did see what looks like liquid not a lot though on the passenger side of car, so I am wondering if it may be oil leaking, but not sure from where. I am going to take to a mechanic to look over, but I wanted to see what it could be so that I do not get jerked around and over charged

is it coming from the wheel fender if it smokes from behind the wheel your brake caliber might be seized and eating your pad

smoke is not coming from that side of car. it is actually coming our from the other side of the car further up from where one would put anti freeze on but further up towards where there is a fuse box under hood

somehow rats chewed through the hose causing car to over heat! thanks for your help in trying to figure out what may have been wrong with my car
