Heater not blowing hot air & vacuum leak


sounds to me the hissing is the sound of a leaking heater core. Its smells weird becuse coolent usually has a sweet smell that is very noticeable. I bet the floor is wet/carpet damp in the front near the hissing. I bet your coolent level is low as well. Replace heater core.

My 1996 buick skylark has gas leaking into the oil. What is causing this?


The most common causes are a faulty injector or fuel pressure regulator.
If one of the injectors is not closing, it will allow liquid gas to flow into the cylinder and past the rings.
If the regulator fails, it will allow liquid gas into the intake.

Have a 1996 buick skylark, temperature gauge is running hot - losing antifreeze but not seeing anything on the ground? funny smell. car running fine. nothing looks disturbed under the hood. any...


if you don`t see any coolant on the ground then you could have a bad head gasket that is leaking into the combustion chamber and being burnt,this will also cause a smell.it could be an external leak as well you don`t say how often you have to top up the rad.the leak may be running down the side of the block and being evaporated before it hits the ground and causing the smell.you should have the cooling system pressure tested to see if anything shows up and have a combustion chamber test done on the cooling system to check for a bad head gasket.

Rich condition on bank 1. Can be dirty MAF sensor, vacuum leak, fuel pressure problem. Inspect all vacuum hose and PCV hose. Clean the MAF sensor. Inspect fuel lines for pinches, leaks, or cracks. Replace the fuel filter. Purchase a can of quality fuel injector cleaner such as Seafoam or Techron and pour one can in a full tank of fuel. Check for exhaust leak before the O2 sensor. If none of this corrects the problem seek professional help.

My 1996 Maxima leaks water from what looks like a hose going into the front of the engine block


ok check the hose if its very soft feeling you may need to replace sounds like a coolent hose. also make sure the hose is tight on the block fitting maby the band has worked loose may just need to be tightned, then refill your radiatior with new fluid. you should be fine. remember to do this after the car is completly cool you dont need a coolent burn and it will stay hot awhile so its best to get the hose you need [if you need one] the day before with the coolent, that way you can do it first thing in the morning when its cool. also if green coolent comes out green coolent goes back if orange coolent comes out orange coolent goes back in. never mix those typs of coolents they are not compatible.. you will probily loose all you coolent so drain it at the bottom of radiator before you start. unless you like laying in it to work on the hose. then refill all is well.. i hope this helped you.. also youtube has alot of good videos on radiator type stuff just type in radiator hose replace and you should get alot of videos on how to do it. who knows they may even have one with the same model as your car.. again i hope this helps good luck

MY 1996 buick skylark olympic edition leaks water on to the driver's side floor. I have replaced the heater core.Is it possible it is a hidden leak at the base of front window or under cowl trim of some...


Taste the water and if it is sweet it is coolant leaking from the heater core. If it does not taste sweet it is a leak somewhere else. What you suspect is very possible. Start by making sure the drain hose is clear an not clogged. Then check the window gasket. A water hose left running on the window slightly will tell you where the leak is coming from.

Look for wet spots after the car sits for a while. Follow these up to the engine. You will find a leak. The leak should be fixed.

Leak in the fire wall of a 1996 buick skylark


Ive used marine sealant before (metal tube) to stop a leak after installing a stereo cable through a firewall, but i hear regular old silicone from home depot will get the job done. These sealant will last about 5 years or so.
