Car smells like antifreeze and overheats?
most likely you need to replace te heater core.generally i if the leak is on engine you wont smell it in the car
Oil on engine burning as engine overheats. Sort of common sense, don't ya think?
white air that smells like antifreeze coming out of heater, indicates that you need to replace the heater core in your vehicle.it is leaking
There is smoke coming into the car through the defrost after you turn off car and it smells like antifreeze?
The smoke is actually antifreeze mixed with air. The most common cause of this is a leaky heater core.
It is possible that the heater core ( the device that heats the air inside the car) is leaking. It is connected to the engine cooling system.
Generally, if your car overheats with the proper level of antifreeze, either your water pump has gone bad (not circulating fluid), the thermostat is stuck, or your radiator is clogged up inside. -NAPAman
What makes a Lincoln town car signature series make steam come from air vents then the car overheats meanwhile the whole time driving you smell antifreeze?
it sounds like you have a leaking heater core
check your fluids it is probably low on antifreeze and if it still does it change your thermostat that should fix the problem
2001 Lincoln town car air vent is blowing smoke and smells like antifreeze when the air is on. Any ideas what is causing this?
Your heater core is leaking.
What does it mean when you smell fumes coming from the air vent in a 2002 passat when the car is stopped?
Depends on the smell. if it smells sweet, like antifreeze, then it is probably a leak in the heater core. This is a small radiator that runs from the main radiator and makes hot air for the heater. If it smells like gasoline, may be a gas leak. Do not drive the car, get it fixed by a professional. If it smells like smoke, it may be an oil leak. get it checked.
Could be that your head gasket is beginning to go. Does it smell strongest when you first start the car, then go away? Look for excess steam coming out the tailpipe when you first start it.
Yes anti freeze has a sweet smell, at least in comparison to the normal fuel and oil smells of a car
your vehicle may smell like antifreeze while driving because it is overheating
Each car overheats at a different temperature you need to look up and find out on the internet
It smells terrible it smells like old gas from the car when people smoke their teeth get ruined
after car runs four 5 minuties it smells like burning plastic why?
You smell like an ash tray Your car smells like an ash tray Your house smells like an ash tray
The car exhaust smells like the rotten eggs as a result of the hydrogen sulphide. This usually happens, when the engine is not serviced for a long time.
What causes a diesel engine to loose water in radiator smells like antifreeze but couldn't find a leak?
Maybe a head gasket leak they're hard to see and can cause coolant leakge and you might smell the coolant in the car
because of the exhaust
my car smells like i have a petrol leak when i turn it on but have no leak underneath the car
Because the engine is too hot to continue cycling correctly without the pistons "sticking" against the side of the cylinders, causing them to slow down or even stop moving in extreme cases. buy some antifreeze
If you have a motor other than the car such as a lawn mower in the trunk it smells. Also if you just got gas it smells.
make be there is a gas leak
A car heater that smells like burning rubber could be an indication of a belt that is slipping. The slipping belt smell can be drawn in from the engine compartment into the passenger cabin.
Likely an exhaust leak
You are probably leaking anti-freeze
The car should be aired out for a day. Then afterwards should be meticulously cleaned. This should get rid of any rotten smells in the car.
If your car smells of petrol inside, and you have not been using a petrol-like solvent to clean something inside the car, you probably have a fuel leak and should have the car checked by someone able to detect and fix a leak.
it sounds like you have clutch whine which is the bearing in the clutch and that would explain why it smells like it is burning as well hope this helps
Shorts out and overheats or has too much resistance for some other reason and overheats.
your face smells like poop and you look like a stupid retard
The type of car antifreeze that is safest to the environment is propylene glycol antifreeze. While it is still not totally safe, it is less toxic than other antifreeze.
Car overheats, your heat in your car stops working
because you spilled gas in it
my car a/c smells like freon? Type your answer here...
most likely your catalytic converter
If your car smells like the inside of a smelly gym shoe, you might need an air ionizer. Not only will it remove the offending smells, but it also works to clean and purify the air inside your car.
When your car smells like the engine is hot, is the engine hot? If it smells hot and the engine is not hot, then you have coolant escaping onto a hot surface. You may have bad radiator hoses, a leaky radiator, a blown gasket, or some other problem. You need to find the leak.
Your car will not neccessarily smell like Antifreeze if your water pump is going, in my personal experience it sounds like your HEATER CORE is shot. That is what usually makes that smell, unless you spilled some on the engine. Also, if the water pump was going the car would run hot and/or overheat.
It probably has a leak, possibly from the heater core.
because it gets so hot it's like it's about to burn
it can..rain has NOTHING to do with your radiator or the thermostat
Poor coolant circulation in the cooling system.
no but antifreeze in oil will eat the bearings
My dad puts antifreeze on his car.
too much fuel in your cylinders!
roy smells like rotten taco with a pinch of brown waste.
the antifreeze runs through all your water lines in your car . . . . you put it in your water tank or radiator
The car will start. If it is malfunctioning, then the car will overheat. If the car overheats, it may not start again for awhile as a safety feature, or it may not start because of heat damage. On newer cars if the car is cold, then the electric fan will turn off. It only turns on when the antifreeze needs cooling. On older belt-driven fans, the fan runs all the time.
Varnish, or in other words it does not smell like gas, it smells almost burnt
