It sounds like you need to use a cleaner to flush out the system...You can buy a spray can that you feed into the air ducts...

SOURCE: 2007 honda odyssey has smell in a/c vents after

With the A/C on you should notice the condensation dripping out from under the van,after its been on a while. If its having trouble draining find the drain and open it up more.The condensate could be getting on the fan motor.Its electric.

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

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.

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6


It could be the handbrake, and easy to check. Next time you smell it, feel the nearside brake caliper or drum, then carefully touch the offside one. You will notice the difference in heat. Under normal use, they get warm, but if it is burning, it will too hot to touch.

Also look under the car for anything near or touching the exhaust. Check mud flaps if you have them that they are not touching the tyre when you are in motion.

My 2003 escape XLT smells like something is burning but there are no signs of anything


check the wheels for excess heat by feeling the rims are they hot..is there a sweet sort of odor(usually associated with antifreeze) and it will send up small plumes of smoke usually steam or white in color..check power steering also..does the car shift ok when running..transmission fluid gets cooled in the radiator in most models..there are plastic ducts that are close to heat sources in some models also..some of these were to be removed by dealers after break-in mileage was achieved but never messed with on some cars.. this caused underhood fires and was a recall item on some models..check for recalls on yours and see if anything matches.. good luck and repost findings..

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

My 1999 Chevrolet Malibu, It smells like burnt plastic when it runs, the smell is coming from, i think the motor. i would like to know what it coming from can you help?


Does the smell only happen when the heat/ac fan is on? Do all the speeds of the fan work? If smell is only noticed when the fan is on it could possibly be the fan speed resistor.
