If I park for an hour or so. Runs good at 35 miles an hour for maybe 10 miles. 40 miles an hour 6 miles. Last time really loud sounds like something dragging underneath. Smelled like something burning. Any ideas?
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello. It sounds like you have an issue with a loose components in the steering. I would usually start by getting the vehicle in the air and check the front suspension and steering for any looseness. If the steering is tight then I check the tires and road force balance them. This would let me know if there are any tire issues as a separating tire will also cause this. If those are also fine then the alignment needs to be checked. There is a serious wobble that can occur in the front end of this vehicle if the alignment is off.
