If you smell rubber burning and then shut the engine off and it wont start again what could the problem be on a 1995 V6 Ford contour?

Without seeing your car... possibly burnt off the serpentine fan belt due to a seized alternator that was not charging. See if the alternator spins over by hand; that could be the problem. I you. Mark

A car heater that smells like burning rubber could be an indication of a belt that is slipping. The slipping belt smell can be drawn in from the engine compartment into the passenger cabin.

The burning rubber smell in the tranmisson breaking apart inside.

The first and easiest answer that comes to mind is that there is a problem with the cabin air circulating fan. BUT - - there is not really enuf specific information. Are you sure it is a burning RUBBER smell, or a burning PLASTIC smell, or a burning ELECTRICAL smell? All could point to different problems.

Your car smells like burning rubber because a tube or a wire has gotten loose and has come against a hot part. Rubber is burning. Something is wrong. The smell is the symptom. The fire that will happen when the rubber has completely burned away and the fire breaks out is the disease.

Rubber tends to not burn as easily as plastic. Also, rubber is more moisture-resistant than plastic. If rubber burns, the fumes from burning rubber are safer than fumes from burning plastic. Sometimes rubber is used because the cord tends to remain more flexible with rubber insulation.

Burning rubber is slang for spinning the tires. The rubber burns due to friction which causes heat which melts the rubber and causes it to smoke.

For starters I would check out the vibration damper on the front of the engine. With the engine not running look at the rubber insulator between the center hub and the outer ring of the damper. If portions of the rubber are missing it can allow for vibration. Look at it while the engine is running, if it is wobbling around that could be the problem.

It could be your heater fan bearing. But more than likely its something in your engine compartment that is making the smell. Such as oil burning on the exhaust or a worn accessory belt.

User Avatar

Most likely a "dry rotted" hose or rubber connection. Just check the lines from the engine to the gas tank to see where the fuel is comming from.

You could have an electrical problem, perhaps the fan is going bad. I would get it checked out, in some instances, it can cause a fire.
