WHAT IS THE SMELL COMING FROM AROUND THE ENGINE IN MY ?

2004 Dodge Intrepid • 121,600 miles

I have a 2004 Intrepid with the 2.7, and after I drive it a long distance or go fast, the engine area smells like a burning rubber/smoke smell. I have noticed that I need a new serpentine belt, which I will get replaced as soon as I can. Could that be the smell? The car runs and idles fine otherwise.

Good question. It could be many things. Check serp belt, check for oil leaks
