Why does my car smell like burning rubber under the hood after i drove it for a while?


could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.

SMELL OF DIESEL IN SIDE CAR


Smelling gases from outside usually means one of your rubbers have failed. Inspect all the rubbers on the firewall and the boot rubbers. May also be coming up from around the gear stick.

What is a EGR valve assembly?


EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation- It allows gases from the exhaust to mix with the intake to allow NOx gases to not form at high temperatures.

Problems with it include being plugged, or open or not holding vacuum, causing a vacuum leak.

Gas Smell when heater turned on


When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?
