    Brand New 06 WRX smoking!

    Just bought the car from the local slavage yard/ junk yard. My car came with 8 miles and now has 130 miles, It is and 06, manual tranny. It has a flood title but the car is in perfect condition except for one problem, Evrytime I park the car from a drive I smell wat seems to be like burning wood coming from the engine, Tongiht as I was backing up in my driveway the car starting smoking all out of the engine. Wat could it be Intercooler probs, Clutch, Tranny???!!!

    It's probably leaves packed up into the engine compartment, or on the exhaust system from when it was flooded.

    What's that crap they put on the car before shipping it to prevent rust. I'm sure most of it might have gotten washed off from the exhaust, but the engine compartment might still have a good bit of it on the parts if it wasnt wheel high in water.
