i have the following problem with my 1993 AWD subaru legacy station wagon. It is running on petrol and is an automatic. When i normally drive there is a white smoke out of the engine cover for the first miles and it smells like burning rubber. There was this problem before half a year ago when i went up really steep hills. There are some oil leaks and a mechanic ones said maybe the smell comes from oil dropping on the hot exaust pipe. The car is also loosing some cooling water but not to much. Also the temperature is never too high.
So do you guys think it is something really dangerous or only a leak in the cooling system?
As you see on my thread i am not a car mechanic otherwise a would not have to askˆˆ Would be happy if someone knows something about this problem. Thanks for all the guys in this forum too, great comunity!!
