I was driving to a job site yesterday on the interstate about 75 mph and noticed smoke behind my car and a smell of rubberish burning. I pulled over immediately and smoke began coming from under my car, the hood, and from under the dash. Looking under the car, the smoke was coming from behind the fire shield around the transmission, forward firewall and sometimes further back on the car. The insulation behind the fireshield had caught fire. I had a couple gallons of water with me in the trunk and did my best to get to the fire to put it out. I poured water down the insulation at the top of the firewall, ripped up the carpet on the front passenger side seat and poured water through the hole behind the console on top of the hump, started to disassemble the dash center part(ash tray and above) and found another hole I could pour through. I got under the car best I could on the side of the interstate and used a screwdriver and needlenose pliers to pull as much of the burning/melting insulation out but to no avail. The car went up in flames and here's the pics... Has anyone ever heard of the insulation catching on fire???? Needless to say, I'm pissed off about it all and loved that car. I will get another one at some point in the future.
