Question about 2001 Ford Escape

Possible vacuum leak/burnt oil smell inside car when heater on/check engine light goes on/off

I have a 2001 Ford Escape. My check engine light is on and is coding that there is a problem related to IAC. The IAC valve has been replaced twice, check engine light goes off and on, and all hoses outside the engine manifold have been replaced. Also, when the heater is on, the smell of burnt oil is present. Several of the coils and plugs have been replaced, but not all. Additionally, oil pan and upper and lower manifold gaskets have been replaced.

2001ford escape burning rubber smell and noise


Check the rear upper strut towers. These are notorious for rusting out, and causing the tire to hit the inner fender well. To my knowledge, no recall on this, but I've fixed a few with a rear quarter panel replacement from rock auto. You wouldn't notice it much on the rear of the vehicle. Smell the rear fender wells for burnt rubber odor.

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise


Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

wonder if it brings a check engine light on? check your coil packs spark plugs/wires - could be a bad injector - could be a vacuum leak - could be an intake leak causing anifreeze to be introduced into the combustion chamber - same with the head gasket could be blown causing the same effect as an intake gasket most of the time if you check your spark plug they will tell you everything like oil on them would be black and oily if its been introduced to water/anifreeze could show signs

It may be coming from the top of the engine and dripping down. I'm assuming you inspected under the vehicle and ruled out a leak around the oil pan gasket and front/rear seals. Check the valve cover gaskets for possible signs of leakage. It is really hard to pin point where the oil is coming from via chat without actually looking at the engine itself.

You may be losing the speedo cable. Others have reported the light flashing related to this. You may also want to check tranny oil condition (color should be clear red, and smell should not have a burnt smell to it)...

Smell like burnt rubber in engine compartment on passengers side. 05 plate 2 litre Focus Diesel. Engine runs seemingly happily, no odd noises, no visible warning lights or messages.


I expect that you have an oil leak that is dripping/running on to the exhaust. The burnt oil will smells a bit like rubber. Check for oil leaks that are higher up on the engine. (Valve Cover gasket for example).

Burnt smell like a petroleum product.ford taurus 2001 3.0


Was car overheated? I've had head gasket problems with Ford b4 and you may have a bad heater core as well and this could be the reason you are smelling a petroleum smell.

Burnt oil smell coming from heater


make sure the pvc valve is in place on the valve cover on the passenager side and also make sure the oil filter does not have a double gasket on it cause this will make it leak and the fan would blown oil back on the engine
