The first thing you need to do is get the vehicle scan as the check engine light is up meaning you vehicle is in limp mode

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

SOURCE: I recently got an oil

most likely the mechanic spilled oil when filling, check to make sure the oil filler cap is still on. if it is just spilled oil it should burn off and be ok.

Hello: None known. Check the gas cap. Find out what code is causing the light to come on. Go to Auto Zopne or other parts store and get them to read the code.

SOURCE: my car smells like burning

look under the car at the exhaust you might have a plastic bag melted to the exhaust causing the smell. you can leave it and let it burn off. You can also jack the car up if you feel comfortable doing so and scrap off as much as you can. That is a common result, if not a bag could be a serpentine belt failing.

Coolant looks like chocolate milk, burning smell


You may have a blown head gasket allowing coolant to contaminate the oil. This an expensive fix (likely $1500 +) as you will likely need to replace one or both head gaskets.

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.
