Re: White Smoke!
Thx for your reply. Not a HG, IMO. The cloud of smoke was coming from the A/C compressor area which may be it's or another bearing in the area seizing up and burning the belt. The serp. belt did not fry or break and the car started up again later just fine. My thoughts are that oil is getting on the belt and causing it to slip. I've got to get under the car to find the leak if that's the problem. Of course, I hope its not the A/C bearing or something more $$$. Going back to the seller is not an option. I'm new to the Taurus, but not to other cars, so I appreciate your help.
