I keep smelling burning oil from my Pontiac 2001 sunfire what does this mean


You have an oil leak somewhere check oil cap, or valve cover, or if you just put some oil in the engine check to see if you accidently spilled oil on the engine.

My 1997 pontiac sunfire is overheating. There is


there is a steel pipe that runs across the motor there, they are prone to corroding and leaking, you might get away with cutting it and bridging with a piece of hose but the best bet is to replace it. We have been lucky a couple of times and found a car in the wreckers that had newish ones fitted.

Missing, stalling Pontiac Sunfire


The OBD II code for P0400 is Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction.
I'm sure the only thing you have left is you may have to replace the EGR valve or check for any leak from the vaccum lines going to to EGR valve.

GAS IN ENGINE OIL


The engine is running way to rich, that would be the only reason for gas in the oil, things that cause a rich mixture are leaking fuel injectors or to much fuel pressure, have these checked by a shop, also do u have a check engine light?
