Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Smells like a mixture of gas and oil when I turn the blower on

Problem started approximately 1-1.5 months ago. about when the season started to change. Every time I would turn the blower on I smelled what seemed to me to be a mixture of gas and oil. A friend walked past my car after it had sat parked from a day or two and said he smelled gas. I checked but could not find a gas leak underneath the car. Is it possible that the connection betweent the throttle body and fuel line is bad?

    97 CHEVY Caviler, has a gas smell both inside the car and in the garage. Now parking outside until fixed because of safety reason with excess of gas fumes. Had a shop do a smoke test in the gas tank & they said # 4 injector is plugged. It is also getting harder to start. Monday the 22 of Dec. the shop will put in a new injector to see if this fixes the troubles.
    Do you believe this will be the fix?

Intermitente starting problems & transmission seemed to go out the other day while driving it


sounds more like an engine issue off the top of my head. The transmission runs off the vacuum from the engine. If the engine timing chain is stretched it will run then not run, have problems idling and shifting and won't charge the battery properly. anyone who has done one before could probably tell you just by the sound of the engine running.

2004 focus 80,000 miles/6 weeks ago, using ac with blower on high, blower gradually shut off and car produced bad smell. Drove home with ac off, blower off, had car checked and nothing found. Now it's...


The 'whirring' sound from the blower motor could be a dry bearing or damaged armature (part of blower motor that the brushes ride on), or just wore brushes. The smell could be the motor winding wires burning due to blower motor bogging down and overheating. You can replace blower motor with new or salvaged one.
