NISSAN MAXIMA HOOD PROBLEM

1995 Nissan Maxima • 175,000 miles

A lot of smoke cam out of the hood when I started my car this morning. This has never happened before. I turned the car off, looked under the hood and everything what charcoal black. It smells burnt. I let it sit for 30 minutes. Started it up with no problems. It still smells. But I drove it around the block with no smoke. Is it safe to drive? What could be wrong with it?

I would have it checked before driving to see the failure

could be electrical or maybe an exhaust issue.

Play it safe and be pro active instead of re active
