Lately my 06 Aveo has had a slight burning smell coming from the engine. It smells like it is overheating, or oil is burning, yet the temp remains normal and i have found no leaks. Any ideas?

It sounds like your heater core is leaking. Check to see if you are losing coolant, are smell like antifreeze???? With 190,000-miles this could be what your smelling??? Just a though???

What is cause of temperature gauge indicating overheating and steam coming from engine and coolant leaking?


First off you are going to need a engine or a full rebuild if the temp gauge redlined.. The cause could be numerous things but if it was steaming from the back of the motor then it's either heater core hose busted or blown freeze plug.

Check radiator fluid level. Electric temp gages do not read temp unless there is water present, no water no hot temp reading.

Temperature gauge rises when idling


First check that your fans are operating and coolant level is full. If they are, check that there are no leaves etc stuck betweren the radiator and the AC condenser.Last option is a bit more expensive...radiator may be partially obstructed internally (would need flush or replacement)
Egg smell brings me to another potential problem if converter is partially plugged it will raise engine temp as well...the rubber smell is oil residue on block getting hotter than normal and evaporating.
If you work on this yourself ask any techinical questions you have along the way and I'll try to help. Otherwise get the car to a shop asap...overheating in any form can severely damage your engine.
Good luck!!
