My engine light keeps flashing and the car is sputtering and has a smell coming from under the hood


Have someone run the codes on the engine and then you will know what it is. If it is flashing then you are throwing codes to find out. The auto parts houses around you will do it for free. If not you should have it towed to a mechanic to get a diagnosis so you do not ruin the engine depending on what the problem is.

Smoke coming from the hood check engine light


Someone else's code may not help you as the light could come on for a number of reasons. Smoke under your hood could be due to a leak or leaks such as oil, coolant, power steering fluid and so on and as the engine gets hot the fluids will burn off on the hot engine or exhaust causing it to smoke. The smell when you turn the heat on could be because your heater core is leaking. This would be accompanied with low coolant levels, overheating and low heat especially at idle also the carpet may be wet. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter the smell could also come from there as leaves and other debris and sometimes even rodents can get in there. Also if you don't allow you evaporator to dry by shutting off the ac but letting the fan run for a couple of minutes the water on the evaporator can cause mold and mildew to grow giving you a funny smell as well. Hope this helps.

2003 mazda tribute giving off bad smell and smokes after driving for about 30 minutes.


By bad smell I take it that you are noticing a smell in the car while driving and not from the rear of the car. I'll also assume that the smoke is coming from under the hood and not the tail pipe. Sounds like you have an oil leak around the top of the engine that is dripping onto the exhaust pipe. I recommend that you clean the engine compartment with a good degreaser like Purple Power or Super Clean. Spray the entire engine down, everywhere you can. Let the degreaser sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with a strong stream of water. Repeat as necessary until the engine is free of visible grease and oil. Then buy some engine oil UV dye and put that into the engine oil filler. Save some for the power steering pump (about 10th of a bottle is enough). Get some UV Glasses and a light used for detecting air conditioner leaks. Run the car for 15 minutes down the road. Stop and look for the florescent dye trails to find your leak. This is the hardest part of fixing this problem. After the leak is found the repair is usually minor.

MPV 2001 burning smell, high whine?


Sound like the alternator bearings are seized or about to seize. The noise could be the bearings or the belt and the smell may be either of them also.
