No heat but blows cold air

Not if the engine is getting up to normal temp. Could be low on coolant or a problem with the heater core or a blend door under the dash.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee drive it a while turn the engine off wont start back up

Your starter solenoid armature is sticking. It is mounted atop the starter and the heat from the exhaust manifold sometimes causes this problem on older systems. You can try a temporary fix by placing some type of heat shield over the solenoid using something that is fire proof but replacing the solenoid will eventually be necessary.

I can smell burning oil smell inside my car sometimes when i turn the heat on.and the engine light also came on couple of days after. i jus changed the oil and filters 3 weeks ago. can someone please

depending on the type of car, you might have oil leaking directly onto the exhaust system, which is dangerous as it could possibly ignite. I would take it back to the oil change place and have them double check the oil filter to make sure the seal isn't leaking. AutoZone or Advance Auto can hook a mini scan tool to the car and tell you why the light is on.

2001 Monte Carlo has about 168,000 miles on it. Stopped for awhile left engine running and car smelled like gas (propane like smell). Recently "low Coolant" light has come on and then gone off...

Some of these issues are unrelated. One thing to look at is the condition of the turn signal switch and the ignition switch. The low coolant light has a TSB from Chevy on the issue and it says to check and clean the sensor. The sensor is on the radiator and has to be removed. The sensor can become contaminated with engine oil, check for oil in the coolant if that is present then you need to find the source of the oil and correct the problem. This problem could be serious like a head gasket issue. That would explain the loss of power and the smell.

The sweet smell sounds like the converter stoppng up. But don't think this could cause it to boil in the resavore. Also might take to a shop just to check the hose may be colapaing. good luck sorry not more info.

Air con smells

If it is the check engine light then something else is wrong. Typically no warning lights are associated with the A/C.
