The fuel to air mixture is too rich. To fully answer your question I would need to know what kind of car, make, model, year. Is it fuel injected or carburator? Is it cold out or warm where you live? depends on what type u have . if it's a carb like the other guy said it might b running rich or the choke might not b shutting off right if it's fuel injected then the oxygen sensor is to blame
yes nd it will also give of a oily smell with it
I would start by checking any leaks in your exhaust and fuel filter area, if there is any leaks throughout the exhaust the smell of gasoline or exhaust may come through into the interior.
most likely you have a leak in the exhaust pipes or a bad catalytic converter
The burning smell from the exhaust pipe may be caused from oil or transmission fluid leaking into the exhaust pipe. For example, if your turbo is failing on the car, then that can cause leakage from the manifold into the exhaust pipe. There may be other reasons, too, which other people will be better articulating.
Any exhaust smell in a car cab indicates an exhaust leak somewhere along the line. Th reason you don't smell it while driving is because the air flowing air under the car is blowing the exhaust gasses away before it can rise into the cab. After the car sits for a while, the gasses seep out of the leak, and up into the cab.
Its just the wax they have on them to stop them from rusting while in storage
sounds like you use a bad mechanic a good mechanic would replace a cracked exhaust manifold to start with if you can smell gas,there is obvioulsy a leak in the fuel system. this needs to be found as it is a fire hazard
your catayltic converter is bad and needs to replaced
exhaust leak or a possible fuel line leak
in the exhaust possibly but in the cabin more often means leaking heater core.
Smell the oil, if smells like some gas is in it. then it would be ur fuel pressure regulator.
Could be overheated coolant or just leaked oil burning off your exhaust headers
There might be a hole in the silencer boxes.
exhaust leak or its running really rich
the cold cranking amp minimuim would be 550CCA
Check to see if you have an exhaust leak onto the starter. An overheated starter is one issue. Check the ignition timing Check that the fuel pump works when cranking engine Check for spark when cranking These can all be caused by heat.
A device called the heat riser has stuck or the heat riser hose has fallen off. could this loose part cause a metal raddling when you start to excelerate?
The smell of antifreeze is very strong and distinct, it does not take much of a leak to smell it. The radiator could still be full and have a small leak. I would check for antifreeze dripping onto the exhaust or on the engine block because when it is hot the smell is much more noticeable from the fumes.
wow!! maybe because you know what you got to do something important
you have a blown head gasket
Probably - your head gasket is blown. Antifreeze will be coming out of the tail (exhaust) pipe.
The first thing to look for would be an exhaust leak. Check for a fuel leak on the top of the engine.
Well if I had one with that problem I would look closer cause it is leaking on the exhaust somewhere.
Under coating wax that's under your car. It is common to Jettas, Beetles, and Golfs, mostly TDI's but others as well. When your exhaust heats up it causes it to smell.
