could be a leaking oilpan .the wind blows the smoke away while driving and when you slow down it goes away leaving the smell. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info

That depends on the exit, in most cases yes you would slow down when exiting a highway, but there are off-ramps that are mostly straight and lead to another highway.

because that is where you olfactory organs are and something is burning nearby.

If you locked your wheels and slid, you burnt your tires and that will smell like burnt oil, since they ARE petroleum products.

The smell of cannabis is quite pungent, reminds me of a mixture of wet soil and burnt pine needles. Probably would smell different for each person.

Brown fluid = burnt fluid (either dark brown or black in color) . In the early stages of slipping, a burnt smell will be the first noticeable indication.

There is a short in your wiring somewhere to your radio. I would check it out. Or get it checked.

That is almost always an indication of a failed transmission. Check the fluid for a burnt smell.

The "burnt match" smell is from sulfur. More than likely, if your feces smells like sulfur, then you probably ate sulfur-rich foods such as eggs.A methane smell would come from foods that attract a lot of bacteria in the intestines, often items that don't digest that well in the body. That might include eggs too, as well as beans, and a number of other things.

The main part of diesel fuel is kerosene, which produces thick black smoke, and gives that smell that is commonly associated with diesel. most likely if it is white smoke, it is antifreeze, if it has a blue tint to it, it is oil. the smell of burnt diesel is rather strong so it could cancel the burnt oil smell, or on the other hand it could be coolant, because burned coolant doesn't have a strong smell. I would check your coolant and oil levels, and check your coolant for having oil in it.

Many things can cause a burning smell under the hood of your car, if the smell is accompanied by smoke you are most likely looking at a fluid leak dripping onto something hot and burning off. If it smells sweet this would be a sign of a coolant leak. A ozone type smell would most likely be caused by a burnt clutch (standard transmission) or brakes hanging up and staying applied. burnt clutch smell would be expected if you have a new driver learning to drive a stick. An exhaust leak would smell, well, quite frankly like exhaust which is a dangerous gas to be inhaling (CO2, CO, etc). either way if your car is smelling funky you should really have a professional auto technician check it out to prevent damage to your health, the environment or future damage to your vehicle.

Naturally, I think you should slow down when you exit a highway but how much you should slow down ultimately is up to the driver. If you're not a very experienced driver then I would suggest that you slow down to the suggested ramp speed, which is posted before the ramp by a sign that has black letters and numbers with a yellow background. Those are suggested speed signs, those signs tell you a speed that you can safely take the ramp at. As far as exiting in general, yes you should.

i would say that there is not much flora but what there is would not be too exiting cause it would be cold

User Avatar

I suspect you would smell nothing at all.

I do not get why you would want your house to smell like burnt plastic, but to make a long story short, go burn/melt plastic. They do not melt at very high temperatures (lcompared to some other substances). You can put some plastic in a pan and heat it up until it melts but MAKE SURE to do it safely and watch it as it burns at ALL TIMES. Xox, Smartiiz. by burnig plastic

No. The moon is atmosphere-less, and the rocks there would not smell. But when moon rocks and soil are taken into a normal air environment, they do emit an odor that the astronauts likened to wet ashes or burnt fireworks.

If it had been used it would smell bad, if it was clean and stored properly, it would smell fine.
