These cars leak! Regular services can usually find and fix these leaks as they happen. Valve cover gaskets and cam Phasers are one big one that drips on the exhaust manifld and stinks up your car. Oil sending units and oil coolers are big on these cars also.Good Luck.

How to replace rear main seal on an 2006 audi a6 sline?


the first thing is to determine exactly where the oil is coming from. If it is a sump gasket at the rear main area it will be easier to do that than pulling the transmission and flywheel to do it (if it is not the main seal) Next is it gear oil - reddish or if manual smells different to engine oil. IT auto and is reddish it may be an oil cooler line or a front seal in the torque converter. I am saying that if it is a rear main seal it will be a big job so make sure before you get involved.

Fan with burn smell when engine switched off


It is normal for the fan to run for a short while (few minutes) after turning off the car to allow the heat in the radiator to dissipate. The time may be dependent on the coolant temperature or it could just be a fixed time (i.e. so many minutes). The burning smell could be a loose belt, but I suspect the radiator fan is electrical and not belt-driven. I think the burning smell could be oil from a leaking gasket. The oil drips onto the hot engine and voila... burnt oil. Not sure what you mean by new (new to you or 2013-14 model), but new cars should not have any leaking fluids. A stuck break caliper could aslo produce a burning smell.

Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

Theres a smell of gear oil in the cab when driving.What could it be?


(1) motor oil only smells when its being burned.
(2) the output of the air ducts is in front of the gear shift area.
So, I'm thinking that you have an oil leak in the engine compartment (which may be dripping onto the exhaust system), and the oil has found a hot part of the engine/exhaust, and the smell of heated oil is wafting through the cabin air filter into the passenger compartment through the air ducts in the middle of the dash to just above the gear shift area.
If my theory is correct, you should be able to re-route the burned oil odor by changing the setting of your air ducts by changing the setting from its current setting to a "defrost-type" setting, wherein air entering the passenger compartment comes from the ducts below the windshield, rather then entering through the openings at the center of the console.
Ultimately, your fix will be to locate and resolve the oil leak.

Here's your list of possible culprits for the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect - Valve Cover Gasket -- Valve Cover Gasket Leaking Oil.
2 Inspect - Oil Filler Cap -- Oil Filler Cap Damaged or Missing.
3 Inspect - PCV Valve -- Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
4 Inspect - Oil Pan Gasket -- Leaking Oil Pan Gasket.
5 Inspect - Head Gasket -- Leaking Head Gasket.
6 Inspect - Oil Pump - divided O-ring or Oil Pump Gasket

If the odor really is gear oil (aka transmission fluid) and not motor oil, then there's a leak coming from the automatic transmission/manual transaxle.
Look under the transmission after the car has been parked awhile, and look for a reddish oil spot/blot/pool. transmission fluid is dyed red just for the purpose of differentiation from other automotive lubricants. You can assist the process of color differentiation by putting newspaper under the vehicle once it's been parked for the night.
Placing enough newspaper may also keep your Pathfinder from depositing a nearly-impossible-to-remove oil stain onto your garage floor overnight.
If you already have an oil stain on the floor, try a spray can of engine degreaser first. Citrus degreaser next.

2001 jeep smells like burnt wire in the cabin


That smell may be related to an oil leak burning off on an exhaust manifold or pipe. Since you did not report any electrical malfunctions, I'd check that first. When working the engine harder it gets hotter and you will therefore smell the burning more than when just normally driving. I can't see your vehicle so don't give me a bad rating if I'm wrong, but I'd look there first!
