I know almost nothing about cars, I have an 05 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2
The other day I had to brake hard, like the hardest I've ever braked, but it wasn't full foot down. As I stopped, I noticed a large puff of smoke from my front right tyre and an instant burning smell.
It dissipated after a while and has been fine for two days, the car handling and breaking feels normal. I assumed that I just made the breaks worked hard during the fast stop, maybe worn/burnt something on on my break pads?
On the way back from work after driving for 20mins I started smelling a burning smell and I think I could see smoke (it was raining super hard) and as I stopped the car (and turned it off) there was a noisy vent sound that continued for a minute and then turned itself down to less of a noise and then stopped, I opened the bonnet and the smell of burning wasn't strong, I couldn't see any smoke, leaks or anything obvious - I couldn't really isolate where the noise was coming from either.
Turned the car back on and there were 0 warning lights.
I took the car out again 3-4 hours later and it didn't happen again and it was an even longer drive.
Can anyone help me isolate the problem? I had a full MOT (I know MOT's are just to check car is legal) 4 months ago and there were no faults, however I have yet to have my full service (almost a year since the last one).
Thanks for any advice.
