get your heater core checked out. the heater core is right by the blower motor and if its busted it will blow the smell into your car.

No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.

SOURCE: 1996 eclipse surging problem
The 1st thing to do here is test the engine control computer for fault codes, if none are present then do the following to clean the automatic idle speed control valve and the throttle valve, they get sludged up and this causes stalling and idle surge among other issues. So before you do any parts replacing do the cleaning, it costs about $5 and 30 minutes of your time. Here is the procedure. My experience? 35 years as a dealer factory trained technican. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.
