    I had the same problem I try to diagnost it for a while but it was too late, it is the coils getting evaporated Oil from a head gasket, if you are still on time you can get them clean, if not you will need to replace it, the cost $70 each at an auto part or $120 at the dealer + labor

Most likely an oil leak around the ignition coil packs in the valve covers. Remove the center covers on the valve covers and remove the coil packs and see if you have oil in the spark plug wells and on the coil pack boots. If so you will have to replace valve cover gaskets and the orings around the coil pack holes. You can also get the coil pack boots separately if the are oil saturated.

Why does my van have a burning smell when I go up hills?


You may have a minor oil leak and not see any dripping on the ground. The van is under load going up hills and will run slightly hotter. If there is oil leaking in or around the exhaust manifold it will give a burning smell.

Fan with burn smell when engine switched off


It is normal for the fan to run for a short while (few minutes) after turning off the car to allow the heat in the radiator to dissipate. The time may be dependent on the coolant temperature or it could just be a fixed time (i.e. so many minutes). The burning smell could be a loose belt, but I suspect the radiator fan is electrical and not belt-driven. I think the burning smell could be oil from a leaking gasket. The oil drips onto the hot engine and voila... burnt oil. Not sure what you mean by new (new to you or 2013-14 model), but new cars should not have any leaking fluids. A stuck break caliper could aslo produce a burning smell.

I have a 1994 toyota estima petrol it smells like a oil burning smell but theres no oil on the ground when i turn it off?


Hi Kiwi, Have a look for oil leaking onto the exhaust system, particularly onto the exhaust manifold. I'm fairly sure that you'll spot something from there. Regards John

I have a 2002 hundai accent , drove car approx 15miles with radiator steaming to shop. replaced radiator. now needs o2 heat sensor and I!m smelling a sweet type coolant smell, but very little and its...


the sweet smell is the motor burning off the residual coolant on the components that got sprayed with coolant.if the car got overheated enough it may have damaged the head gasket and is now burning oil due to the over heating.or there is a mechanical problem due to the overheating(ring problem,valve problem,etc.)if its burning oil then it can cause an 02 problem as the sensor will get coated with what ever is coming out of the exhaust.the heat sensor is part of the 02 sensor that warms the sensor up so the computer will go into closed loop sooner and help with fuel mileage.

My 2000 Z3 BMW smells like it is running hot. The dash gage shows normal (right in the middle) We have not found any leaks anywhere indicating that the water resivor overflows. Any suggestions?


Check the exhaust side of your valve cover gasket for evidence of an oil leak. Burning synthetic oil tends to smell like hot plastic.

When i drive after some time is getting bad smaile


Bad smells can come from a variety of heated item in a car.

The key word is HEATED. After you drive, and you smell the bad odor, park the car (engine running) and walk around the car smelling and sensing (not touching) for heated areas.

Lift the hood, and see if there are anythings that look out of the ordinary. The engine will be hot, but there are hoses and wires all over the engine compartment. look carefully to see if you have any wisps of smoke anywhere.

Melted wires or hoses. If you just filled the oil, you could be smelling oil burning off the block. This applies to any fluids.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!
