a burning smell by altinator, started 2 days ago, or it might be a stuck valve

I've tryid evrythng now but it dsnt seems to work wht else cn it b

When I use the turn signal or brake the radio cuts out for one second or the head lights dim and sometimes the steering gets stiff is there a solution to this problem without going to the dealer Just started but seams to be getting more frequent

It did it wile I took off in first gear..but it hasn't done it again. .what does it mean?

When I am accelerating - usually when I reach 40-45 mph, I hear a soft high pitched whirring sound which appears to be coming from right front of car. No warning lights come on. This noise does not happen all the time nor is it happening when the car is in neutral and I press the accelerator...any insight is greatly appreciated.

ps - maintenance is up to date.


I have had this checked out by Toyota dealership who said nothing was wrong. Another machanic said the same thing and I've had friends check the battery too.

The car runs really fine. I've noticed this happens most often when it has rained or is raining. (when its very humid outside.)

i replaced the battery and still does it !:(
its bein the 3r time in 4 mounts now! is it the alternator or the cable battery or els? when i start the car the light goes off but when i star rolling it goes on. i had to clean the connector to the battery because there was a lot of corrosion. Now its all clean but still does it when its humid out! what can it be.

Anyone with any info/insight its greatly appreciate.

What causes loud hum when driving except when you steer to the right

2007 Yaris with 135000 miles. I was accelerating on the highway and heard a clunk. The check engine, battery, and cool warning lights all turned on simultaneously. When I turned on the heater, it was blowing cold air. Car runs but don't want to do any further damage. Any help would be appreciated...
