I just bought this 2005 escape which is nice i love it . but i notice when i stop driving its smoking under the hood . Not a lot of smoke and it also smells bad . all fluids are ok and nothing seems to be leaking. I did notice that the dealership had it detailed and it looks like they used tire wet on the engine to make everything look shiny could that be the smoke prob and smell anybody have any ideas thanks

If you don't see anything leaking out from anywhere, it maybe just the shiny stuff burning/evaporating from the hot parts. Then again...
I would agree that it is burning off and should subside in a day or so. BTW, how many miles?
