You need to get a scanner hooked up to see what error code your computer has stored, and then go from there. (Most auto parts stores will do this for free)

Look under the dash on the passenger side and under the hood more closely for burnt wires to the computer. If the computer has burnt wires to the instrument panel, then you found the problem.

White smoke under hood but not over heating. what could this be?


The rubber smell leads me to believe a coolant hose is leaking and getting ready to burst. Better get it fixed immediately!

Burning smell in turn on the heater and out side to 2004 Honda accord LX 4 Door


Can you tell if the smell is coming more from the outside(under the hood), or the inside? I can only guess from the info so far. If the smell is from under the hood turn the heater on recirculate and you won't smell air from outside the car. Not sure where you are from, but here in New England it is time for mice inside the heater boxes.

Burning plastic smell from under hood


You will need to check where the liquid is coming from, It may be anything from Air Con, Fuel, Transmission Fluid etc..

The fact you smell burning plastic could be 3 things..

1, Brake pads could smell and burn down if they are on too tight (Had this problem with a trailer). Hence when you apply the brakes it could be squirting brake fluid out due to too much pressure.
- Check brake fluid

2, If the smell and liquid is inside the car (front pass side) it could be the air ducts. Under the dashboard you have air ducts etc for the fans and in car cooling (brother had issue with this)

3, Whatever the fluid is, it could possibly drip onto something hot, unusual for liquid to smell like plastic though, Auto transmission oil smells like fish.

Best bet would be the brakes. Next time you smell it just smell in the wheel mag and see if you can smell it, check the engine fluids often and dont use A/C (Air Con) as that does drip fluid (normal). If it is the brakes smelling you will need to have the lines bled out, tyre places may be able to do this, and possibly new brake pads

Good luck

Smell of burning oil out of heater vents


Have you checked under the hood,Mark? The heater commonly pulls outside air thru the vents and can get air coming up from the engine,so I'd look for a smell outside the car,under the hood.Let me know what you find.
You can alleviate it some by using the recycle air button on your heater,but you need to find the source quickly,so you don't have a fire. don-ohio (:^)
