The smell and smoke went away within a min or so, so i decided to slam on my brakes one last time before i made a stop. Once again same thing happened, saw some smoke and my car had that awful rubber smell. Once i open my hood i didn't notice any strange smell what so ever, everything seems normal. And there are no leaves in my engine bay.
Can anyone help me resolve this issue, please!?! ?!?
I have this same problem on my 07 328i and I looked and smelled my power steering or brake fluid whichever canister is on the right of the engine bay and it smells the same! I think it's overflowing and dripping in the engine I need to research it more but please let me know what you find out!
