SOURCE: Smell like burnt rubber in engine compartment on

I expect that you have an oil leak that is dripping/running on to the exhaust. The burnt oil will smells a bit like rubber. Check for oil leaks that are higher up on the engine. (Valve Cover gasket for example).

SOURCE: 2001 accent gsi.... diodes burning out for

Diodes are simply electrical current gates. Current passes through them in only one direction. If current is fed in the reverse direction, poof., there goes a diode. You are getting a feed back from a short with a hot wire or another componant. Chk the body to engine ground strap. usually at back of engine and screwed to the firewall. A diode is not a fuse. It is a one way gate for electrical flow.

First of all: Ground your car till you fixed this problem! A short can cause a fire and, believe me you can't stop it!
Next: check the complete wiring for the seat first, then remove the seat and check wiring and switch inside. After that, check the motor(s). If there is no problem with the seat and the wiring in and to the seat, remove the dash board (you need to remove it complete! This will take a day, if you don't do this every day). Use a wiring diagram and check the wiring for a short or broken wire. The electrical system is not as simple as it was in the later 80' . Cars with ODB systems uses wires not only for a special system, like power seat. The same wire can be uses to activate other systems so it is not easy to find the electrical cramlin right at the point you think it have to be! Searching for a short can cost you days or, in some cases weeks.

SOURCE: Smell of burning rubber rear offside wheel area

Hi there! Check out this link.
http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic175126.htm
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

Most newer cars have _two_ separate fuse boxes. One in the engine compartment and one inside the car. Some even have a third fuse box located in the rear (inside) the car. I have seen owners manuals that make no mention of the third box.

At speed, my car sounds like it is an airplane taking off.


Check the transmission fluid, if it is low add to correct level while running. If it smells burnt that's not good. Sounds like a bad transmission. Or check tail pipe to see if someone put a gag sqweeler in pipe. Do not burn your self getting the sqweeler out, it can be very hot.

I have oil in my air intake. What would cause that?


If it's a relatively small amount then it's normal: the crankcase breather vents oily fumes back into the air intake to be burnt off by the engine as a normal anti-pollution measure.

Larger amounts may mean that the crankcase ventilation system (pcv valve) needs cleaning or replacing (very common), or if the engine has endured high mileage or frequent short journeys then it may indicate worn piston rings or cylinder bores. A dry compression test followed by a wet test will confirm if there is wear in that part of the engine, but if it still runs well and passes emissions tests then repairs are an expensive luxury.

Do i need to worry if i have a puff of black smoke from the exhaust when i first start my car. its black and only for a minit. also my car always smells hot like oily after even a short journey. would this...


65 thousand isn't much for a diesel engine.
I would not be too worried if it is only when you first start it up.

Diesel smells like oil at the best of times especially when it gets on your hands :) I have an old diesel engine (280,000 km never had the head off ) with no fancy turbo or anything on it. It used to blow a cloud of black smoke when I started it in winter time. It used to crank more before it started when it was cold too. The problem turned out to be 5 out of 6 of my glow plugs were broken. So it was just squirting more and more diesel into the cylinder before it generated enough heat to start. When it finally kicked all the fuel burnt at once hence the black smoke. There is a way to test your glow plugs (assuming you engine has them) with a multi meter. Or just get a mechanic to check and replace them as needed. Mine were about as complicated as changing a spark plug.

This is just my experience. I'm sure there are other reasons your can might be blowing black smoke.
