Dear friend-the smell might be oil dripping from the tappet cover on to the exhaust,you will smell it when standing still moving creates a vacuum under the car which drags the smell downwards underneath the car.

Obd light on, idle rough, smell, no throttle


The obd light with tell specifically what it is, is it gas or rotten egg - the latter means catalytic converter, gas smell probably flooded or not firing on one or more cylinders, need more details. Also, if the light is flashing it's warning of catalytic damage - raw fuel hitting the cat, smell could be heat from cat trying to burn off raw fuel,it will glow red hot.

Unique Problem? Was running fine no problems while i was just sitting round at Idle... Started to smell like wires were burning together?? The car then shut off on me havent been able to get her started...


look on the positive battery cable,follow it to a junction,or to the stater,there will be some fusible links there,that will be burned into,but replace them with fusible links,and find out why they burned out.

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.

Car runs great with 90000, when it idles theres a slight burning smell and then it disappears as you drive, comes back when idling, any thoughts?


You likely have an oil leak that is running onto something hot. When the car is stopped, the smoke and smell comes out from under the hood and gets drawn inside the car through the air intake just in front of the windshield.

Engine falls below 500rpm lights dim and engine stalls out


I had a bad air conditioner compressor that caused this same problem. It had almost completley seized and gave the car some real trouble starting. The burning smell I had was caused from the belt rubbing around the seized pully.
