    Is it on the passenger side? If so , it's the condensation from your A/C draining from the vent tube from the evaporator case and it's normal.

    More than likely steam from water dripping onto hot engine/exhaust.
    Like stated in answer clear liquid has to be coming from AC drain.
    Check under hood for something touching exhaust pipe causing smell.

    look under the car at the exhaust pipe and see if you have the remains of a Walmart grocery bag burned onto it. They tend to smell quite bad. Otherwise it would be good to have someone investigate the 'burning rubber' smell. Good luck.

    its your power steering hose that is leaking.. the smoke comes out when you brake suddenly or make a sharp turn. these reasons force the hose to release oil suddenly on a hot engine, hence the smoke. have the hose replaced.
