SOURCE: this morn a burning like smell came through the

you probably had one of the diodes in the alternator burn out...go to auto parts store and have them test the charging system or use a multimeter if you have one, normal, engine running voltage should be around 14 volts, if below 12.6 the alt. is not charging and needs replacing. Enjoy

Sound like a possible leak or you have a bad injector. You will not be able to lokk under the car for any leaks due the fuel will evaporate, you will need to start the car and look at the fuel rail while it's running. If it is not that check your fuel filters. If your lines do not have addaquate fuel pressue due to a leak or a dirty filter, it could cause those symptoms...


Good luck!

SOURCE: heat/ac fan doesn't work

go to the ac fan resistor first - then check the fan itself (put 12 v), remove climate control and check plug for shortage-melted wires

SOURCE: ENGINE LIGHT IS ON, CAR BURNS ALOT OF GAS. SLIGHT

You don't have a simple problem. Engine light has to be read by a scanner (OBDII) available at autoparts store. Or take to mechanic. After you get code you'll have to be a mechanic to fix problems. Burns lots of gas can be many different causes. Miss in motor, same. Please take to professional if this is beyond your knowledge. Good luck!

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

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.

Vehicle smells like natural gas after stopping when vehicle is hot


I think you are getting a rotten egg smell,not natural gas. I would check for exhaust leaks from the catalytic converter for starters. Have you checked the grill at the base of the windshield and on top of the firewall? folks have been known to drop eggs down there as a prank.

Audi A6 air con always blow very hot air coming from engine with bad smell


The smell is probably related to the catalic converter when a cat goes bad it creates a smell similar to rotten eggs. You might need to replace the catalic converter. This will improve gas mileage and performance. The hot air blowing from the AC is probably a low charge on the Freon.

Hi, Sounds like the catalytic converter is shot. It needs to go to the shop to have it checked. Best of luck to you!
