Engine Performance problem
1992 Mazda 929 6 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 192000 miles
I just bought this 929 for $2500 and it seems like everything works, really nice car.
The scary part.
I smell something burning everytime I stop and turn off the engine. At first I thought it was coolant, but now I think it is oil, and sometimes rubber.
So I smelled the dipstick, it has plenty of oil but I am very afraid I smell gas in the oil?
I also hear a squealing belt and the idiot lights, flash dimly like they want to come on during idle, so I think the alternator belt/serpentine may be loose ant this may be the reason for the burning rubber smell? Now I am notincing a rough idle, but the performance seems to be OK?
I park in dry spots always expecting aleak, but never have seen any indication of a leak?
Last thing is that the brake idiot light is on but the parking brake is off, I am sure it is due for pads, but maybe the brake is on and this is the burning smell? Brake pads on the front?
