I have a 1998 Tiburon

Asked by Jul 01, 2008 at 08:05 PM about the 1998 Hyundai Tiburon 2 Dr FX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am getting a burning smell of sorts from my car, I have checked the oil and coolant and it seems fine, does anyone know of what else it could be? It's not all the time but sometimes when I am driving it happens or when I shut the car off.
Thank you

I have had a few friends with this car, and this is just a suggestion, but you might want to check your belts. They might be overheated, cracking or something like that. This can be a serious problem. Trust me I've had a belt break on me, it is no fun at all.

Zack is probably right my friend has a tiburon and he had the same problems and it turned out to be one of his belts.
