I could not tell you exactly what happened but I was getting off the highway and went about 5 miles down a residential road, when my truck just starting making a horrible noise. The only way I can describe it, is that it sounds like something fell off the bottom of my car and was being dragged along the road. I checked under my car and nothing at all dropped, the car has a weird light smell coming from it. The sound gets worse if I don't hit the pedal, or if I brake. If I step on it, then it levels out until it hit 40mph then it begins to make that noise again. I don't know if it is something has silly as needing tranny fluid, but I don't know if it could be something major too.

Do you
have the same problem?

The symptom description does not give us much to work with and it is best to get someone to have a look at it.

Since you did not see anything loose or hanging and a smell was emityted, I would suggest taking a look at the drive belts and components thereabouts.

Was this
