White smoke coming from rear drivers side wheel, loud ticking noise in engine. Car seemed sluggish as well. Only drove 4 blocks but car was overheating. Have had alot of rain and flooding in area and had to drive through quite a few inches of water one night, could that have anything to do with it? The noise only seemed to start after that night. 3 weeks later I first noticed the burning smell, and the next morning after driving the 4 blocks I noticed a much stronger burning smell and the white smoke. Have not driven the car since.
