I have 2001 chevy express 3500. about 190K miles. Sometimes, a sort of white vaporous smoke will start coming up out of the hood, especially when facing down on an incline. It has an odor, but Im not quite sure how to describe it. Last time I started the car, it was whining pretty bad. Never heard that noise before, and not sure if its related to the smoke. The whining got louder when I pushed on the brake pedal, and the brakes did feel weird. they also didn't work near as good as usual/as theyre supposed to. Any idea what it could be? Brake fluid leak? I don't have any experience as a mechanic but if its a simple fix I could/have more experienced family members that could fix it. Or at least Id have an idea of the problem and the cost before I have it towed to a shop so I don't get cheated. Many thanks!
I found a 2001 Toyota Corolla with 200k miles on it on Craigslist and also a 1997 Chevy Cavalier with 88k miles on it. Obviously, 88k miles is a lot less than 200k miles, but I'm wondering if it would even matter considering Toyotas run forever. I need a reliable car for college (I will be commuting everyday for college this fall) and both have minimal/no rust. My mom owns a 1999 Toyota Camry and it is still running today (over 200k miles, check engine light is on but not sure what the problem is, it is also very loud), so a Corolla would still be a good choice based on what I've heard and seen. Which should I go with? I do not drive a lot outside of the fact that I will be going to college (about 20-25 miles there and back). I also would take very good care of whichever one I go with (oil changes, washing, driving), but is the Chevy the best choice because it has the lower miles? I live in Upstate NY, so the winter is definitely harsh on cars here. Thanks for the help!
