You turn on the heat and the air smells funny it kind of smells like glue what could cause this?
Could be bacteria build-upIf your vehicle has air conditioning the smell could be caused by build up of bacteria on the heater matrix and in the vents, as this bacteria decays it causes a smell inside the cabin, this can be resolved by purchasing air specialist air con cleaner the is sprayed into the air vents. The smell can also be caused by the heating of leaking coolant from the heater matrix, this would also combined with the car steaming up. Check the coolant level to see if it has dropped.

What would cause a smell from the heater of a 99 Ford Taurus wagon that at first smells like a farm then turns to a maple-syrup smell when warmed up?
Answer . aleaking Heater Core.. Answer . \nInteresting description! There could be multiple answers. To begin, the cabin filter could be the source of the farm odor. It is located under the vent cowling on the passenger side at the bottom of the windshield. Carefully removing the black plasti…c screws from the cowling. However, the maple syrup smell after warming up potentially could indicate a heater core leak. If you are occasionally having to add coolant or if your heater is only "warm and not hot" would be a clue. If you have a core leak or if it is plugged the entire dash assembly must be dropped to access and replace the core. Good luck! ( Full Answer )

If all of the hot water pipes in the house smell all right but one faucet in the bathroom smells like rotten eggs when you turn it on what could cause the odor?
If you are using well water or the city water is well water you may have some sulphur compounds that get airborne when the water goes through the aerator. It isn't really a problem, it just smells bad. ANS 2 - I deal with many wells that have high iron in the water. This causes the odor described,… -but it's carried through ALL the faucets. This appears to be an aerator problem, and the possible solution is fit a new aerator. - If that doesn't get rid of the odor, it's a simple and cheap matter to fit a 10" filter on this cold line, under the sink ( Full Answer )
Answer . Leaking fuel filter or fuel filter connections; Plugged, dirty or poorly connected fuel injector(s).
Answer . Over time debris and other things can collect near the heater core, its possible that something small and plastic has fallen down through the defrost vents and gets hot when the vehicle is running. You may need to disassemble the heater and remove the items and perhaps vacuum it out.
Answer . I have the same issue with our Subaru Outback 1996. Our mechanic said we should replace the Fuel Vapor storage Canister. This is a carbon filter that stores fuel vapors that leak out of the tank. If it gets clogged with fuel on a hot day the vapor is going to leak out when you're at a st…op and get pulled into the car by the AC. ( Full Answer )
What could cause a car to turned off while driving i have some kind of leak it smells like radiator fluid but im not sure any body know what happened?
Answer . \nSounds like you have a headgasket problem, if your compression is strong is enough for it to run, your engine gets hot and the parts inside expand, creating a larger compression leak thus your vehicle is not capable of running and shuts down.

On a 2002 Honda CRV if you smell a dead mouse when turning on the air conditioning or heat system where can you find the source of these systems in the engine to clean it out?
Answer . Not sure about the CR-V but we are returning our 2006 Pilot to the dealer for the third time to deal with mouse problems. The first time was a dead mouse that got run through the blower fan when my wife turned on the AC this summer. The blower is behind the glove box and I could see the… nesting materials when I dropped the door on the glove box out of the way. You might want to look and see if the CR-V has a similar setup. Hope you get it resolved, we're basically done with Pilots if this trip doesn't resolve the problem. ( Full Answer )

What would cause the check engine light to come on also the car smells funny what could be the problem also there is no heat or air blowing out of the vents you have a 2000 VW beetle?
Is it a fish smell or a rotten egg smell ?. FISH SMELL COULD BE A BAD HEATER CORE, THIS WOULD CAUSE YOU NOT TO HAVE HEAT IN THE CAR , BUT IT MIGHT NOT CAUSE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COME ON UNLESS MAYBE CAR IS LOW ON COOLANT. ( THERE MIGHT BE A LOW COOLANT SENSOR TO TRIGGER CHECK ENGINE LIGHT). ROTTE…N EGG SMELL COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER , WHICH WOULD CAUSE THE OXYGEN SENSOR TO TRIGGER THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, BUT IT WOULDN'T CAUSE THE LOSS OF HEAT. ( Full Answer )
You are getting gas mixing into the oil! This can happen when thevehicle is running rich...as it would when cold, and the choke ison. Normally the gas will evaporate when the oil is heated. Thishappens when it reaches the full operating temperature. However, if you are only making short trips in co…ld weather, theevaporation may not take place. Then the extra gas collects in theoil, and builds up. There is the possibility that there is a mechanical problem that isallowing gas to mix with the oil, but the first cause above is morelikely. Drive the car on the highway for 10 miles once a week and youshould help alleviate the problem. ( Full Answer )
Clothes smell funny when i am at school they smell like fabric softener when i leave my house but after a while they begin to smell weird?
That smell is maggots in your washing machine growing when they leave our home. Maggots are parasites and they emit a foul odor as they grow and shed their exoskeltons. This has probably happened by washing some soiled underwear in your washer. While they are not growing in your washer the warm, sus…tained temperatures of your dryer is sufficient enoiugh to incubate and hatch the maggot eggs. It is recommended that any clothing that smells like this be thrown away, as it will exacerbate a difficult problem. ( Full Answer )
Maybe there is something wrong with yours or you have animals who have urined somewhere in your house.
There could be a number of things that can cause feces to smelllike metal such as if you are detoxing or if ketone bodies arebeing excreted in your stools. Also eating garlic can cause yourfeces to smell like metal.
The odor of urine derives from uric acid. what can I do to take care of this problem and how does it get into your system?
Ouchie! That must be awful.. What I think you should do is that you should probably call someone who can help with that kind of thing. Sounds like you need it pretty bad. If the person you call can't help you, I suggest you go find someone who can.
The sweet smell is caused by antifreeze leaking from the heater core. As the hot air passes through the core it evaporates solvents in the antifreeze which have this "sweet" smell. This contaminated air enters the car when you put the heater on. You might try a radiator sealant additive obtained at …any car part store. If you interior carpets are wet then the leak is bad and needs immediate attention. ( Full Answer )
Possibly a semi stuck thermostat or anti-freeze dripping on the hot manifold or engine. Someone may have a better answer. I do not own a 07 Chevy HHR.
Throttle body injections (TBI) have what is callled a wet intake where the fuel is sprayed into the intake instead of the intake runners with port fuel injection. The fuel vaporizes and can make the air cleaner smell like gas.
if u would have noticed the onion smell comes only when you cut onions .
because there's acetone or strong glue in it Maybe so; but last night around 8 p.m., an unexplained odor of very strong fumes (similar to strong glue or paint thinner) filled the center of my home and the basement. Only thing is, no one has painted here in three years nor glued anything. My youn…gest son came downstairs and asked me what the smell was, so I was not the only one that noticed. I opened the doors and windows because it made me feel light-headed. I never determined the source and inside of 15 minutes it was gone. When did this happen, and was it similar to my experience?

Eating foods that have garlic in them will cause most people to have garlic scented discharge.
It is not just you. You probably do smell funny. Try a new body soap, deoderant, and body spray.
Yes, any smell of gas is an indication of a leak and should be repaired.
I'm not 100% sure, but My auxiliary heat is electric strip heaters that work usually only when the outside temp is too low for my heat pump to operate efficiently. It doesn't come on very often (thank goodness, because it is way expensive to operate) and since the strip heaters sit unused for long p…eriods of time they accumulate a thin layer of dust and dirt which gets burned off each time they're used. I have strip heaters in my bathrooms, which I rarely ever use and I can actually see household dust on them and see it get burned off whenever we do use them and they put out an odd smell at first until all the dust gets burned off, so I think that's what you're smelling, burnt dust and dirt!

Too much fuel being put in the engine and it gets by the rings and if it has a mechanical pump attached to the motor, it can be leaking inside and running into the crankcase. Too much and the oil will be so thin that it no longer lubricates and you loose a bearing.

because the food we eat is mashed up in our stomachs and well you see when we digest the food the food/drink smells weird!
I am not quite sure that I have your answer, but I've been told that it could be mold. All of a sudden where I work smells like vomit. Some internet responses suggest you rinse your sink drain with hot water, followed with lemon juice and possibly baking soda. This has not helped. Another website sa…ys check no rotten vegetables, particularly potatoes. This was not the problem. Another site says it could possibly be mold in the walls. I certainly hope this is not the case.....mold removal can be expensive. But the smell has gone on for several days and is driving me crazy.....really don't want to go to work, not just because of the smell....But is this possibly a health issue? ( Full Answer )
I don't think so. Probably your cabin air filter is dirty or the air duct is partially clogged with old leaves and decomposing stuff - that's what happens to me. It might even be a dead animal that crawled up into the engine and died! Anyway, I keep my cabin air filter changed and I use some of the …recipes from the following webpage to keep the inside of the car smelling good. ( Full Answer )
Heat will sometimes smell due to the warming of different metals and/or the burning of different gasses. For example, if you are beside a fireplace that is made from iron you will notice a bitter smell emitted from it. Another example could be understood when you are next to a propane furnace, it wi…ll give off a slightly sweet smell (do not inhale this product as it can cause internal dis-function).

That could be a leaking exhaust system. A leaking exhaust system is very dangerous! Please have it checked out ASAP.
most likely you have a leak in the exhaust pipes or a bad catalytic converter

Valve cover gaskets leaking oil onto exhaust manifold/s. Bad valve seals. (if oil level drops) Bad PCV valve. Allowing oil into intake manifold/throttle body area.
An air conditioner should not smell like smoke when turned on (or when turned off). I would have to suspect that the electrical insulation is burning.
That funny smell is the scent produced by the dirty socks somebody left on the floor.
