Curious if this could be a normal thing from it sitting for 6 months… I have a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse.
Took the battery out for the Winter. Just started the car today only ran it for about 2 min when I went to close the hood after shutting it off I could smell a faint burning smell the smell resembled a burning rubber smell it was not strong but I also didnt run the car for long.
Has anyone experienced this after a cars been sitting? Im worried now to drive it or start it as I dont wanna cause harm what would you suggest I do?
I looked best I could and all the wires look fine… no signs of chewing or anything.
Do you think its safe for me to start it and maybe just let it Idle and see if the smell fades? Im worried about it catching fire…lol :S
Thank you for any suggestions!
