Audi A6 air con always blow very hot air coming from engine with bad smell


The smell is probably related to the catalic converter when a cat goes bad it creates a smell similar to rotten eggs. You might need to replace the catalic converter. This will improve gas mileage and performance. The hot air blowing from the AC is probably a low charge on the Freon.

I have a 1999 ford contour...running horrible...missing...no power...chug chug chug...engine lighrt on..only code it is throwing is for the egr valve...when you have to excelerate up a hill it has no


EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve may be stopped up with carbons. This would account for some loss of power as well as odor if leaking around intake. If I remember correctly, egr tube originates just above catalytic converter on this model. Condition may be early signs of cat failure ( commonly accompanied by "rotten egg" odor). I recommend having emission system checked by certified tech to avoid uneccessary component replacement.

My car loses power sometimes and I can have the pedal on the floor. What causes this? I have new spark plugs and wires, fresh air filter good engine oil life. (1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6)


Could be many things but,i would put my money on a weak fuel pump.Check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs replace pump and filter.

I would have the catilitic converter checked. when they clog up you loose power and burn more fuel it could also explain the hot engine as the exaust can not escape. hope this helps!

Heat/catalytic converter is on all the time but is dim, plugs in correctly?


if your catalytic converter is getting hot and smells it could just be time to replace it. they do wear out. the cataylist either loses it effectiveness or disintergrates. if your engine is running fine than this is probably your problem.
