Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.working after noon till just after midnight.
Was this an oil smoke or electrical smoke, or exhaust smoke odor?
Any fluids leaking onto the ground?
Since there were no fluids on the ground that means its more than likely electrical smoke form a possible wire short to the battery, alternator, or starter.
