Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

Nissan smell


the smell probably came from a wire that is shorting out-maybe when the headlights are turned on-look at the wires right behind the headlight-look for burned or bubled insolation on the wires-cheers Denny

1997 blazer,heater bad smell when on


Is it a bad smell or a sweet like maple syrup smell. If its sweet you got a coolant leak probably heater core. Bad smell possible causes burning something up. I would run some water in the in the air intake below your wipers just to see if it changes. Not much but a little. Better or worse in cold tempers. Hwo about when the car first start or has run awhile does the smell get better or worse. More feed back please.

I have a 2005 chevrolet equinox the other day it started making this really loud sound like loud static coming from the speakers and the radio was off and you could smell wires burning can anyone help me


Yee gads! this issue sounds like something is shorted to ground, most anything of that type would broadcast into the radio.

Locate, immediately, the source of the burning wire smell. this issue is a serious FIRE HAZZARD. Do not let up until you find it. Burning wire smell, presuming that is what is happening, often results in major car fire... Find the burning wires and you will have your answer.

Truck stalls


if it is burning rich, there for it will be over fueling around low rpm i do belive, which will cause the engine to flood, im guessing after you have been low rpm then go for high rpms, it like hesitaes and takes abit of a cough then goes, if that is the case then it is overfueling.

there is a way to advance/****** the engine mixture, but id say for safe if you don't know what your doing to take it do a garage, and ask for it to be timed up with the timing strobe light :) which will stop the, over fuelling around low rpms.

Heater not working


The problem is probably the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where yours is located exactly. They can be on the firewall under the hood or some are near the blower motor under the dash.
