did you forget to re-install the dip stick or the oil filler cap after the last oil change/check? also, did you just have an oil change or anything like that where oil may have poured onto the exhaust system? if none of the above, your valve covers are probably in need of new gaskets...:) also everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual available...in the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)
You have a serious safety problem or a engine control problem. See a technician immediately! 3 minutes
The new car burning smell is probably just the oils burning off the engine. As the engine warms up for the first time, it will release a odor that smells like something is burning.
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.
Electrical problem... have a professional diagnose problem ASAP!!! If you do not fix, your car may have a fire!!!
Oil on engine burning as engine overheats. Sort of common sense, don't ya think?
Burning cotton will smell like burning paper because both cotton and paper come from plants and burning wool smells like burning hair because both wool and hair comes from animals.
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.
Burning cotton smells like burning paper because it is extracted from plant same as the paper.Burning wool smells like burning hair because it is extracted from animals like sheep etc. and is actually the hair of the animal.
Check around the rocker cover to see if it's leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold.
Burnt metal smells like burnt metal.
It smells like you
Many times the problem is a valve cover gasket(s) that has leaked oil onto the hot exhaust manifold underneath it. When you have stopped in traffic, or if you are on a hill, etc., the oil that has leaked has a chance to run down on the hot manifold and smells like rubber or oil burning. Most of the time this is just a nuisance but it should be repaired if is bad enough to the point you can smell it in your car or truck.
It smells terrible it smells like old gas from the car when people smoke their teeth get ruined
-the rocket smells like yo poo and the jet engine smells like yo mama
You could have an electrical problem, perhaps the fan is going bad. I would get it checked out, in some instances, it can cause a fire.
If it smells like oil u most likely jus need a new valve cover gasket
you can ask them if you can smell their mouth and if it smells like smoke it means they are smoking.
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
I can't think of anything that would be placed under a passengers seat that would do that, so look for a power wire to a remote amplifier installed after market, a possible power seat motor malfunction or seat heater problem. Problem is that any of these would be fused and would blow the fuse long before smoking, so it would have to be incorrectly installed without a fuse. Or someone dropped a burning cigarette under the seat.
It's very possible. I would definitely take it to a mechanic and get their opinion. Burning smells and smoke can be a sign of overheating, which can severely damage your motor.
because it is a type of plastic
Your house smells.
The smell. If anything smells like smoke, marijuana or anything then someone has been smoking.
after car runs four 5 minuties it smells like burning plastic why?
