GRINDING WHEN ACCELERATING

When I accelerate, I get a grinding noise coming from just under the bonnet on the drivers side. When I coast and take my foot off the accelerator, the noise stops but when I come to a complete stop, my car cuts out. When I parked, smoke appeared and smelt rubbery.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Check the serpentine (alternator/power steering) belt and tensioner
