1992 galant vx quad cam v6

When driving the car it suddenly stopped and could smell electrical burning smell inside the car. The car still turned over but wouldn't fire. Turns out the computer had a surge an burnt out a diode. Replaced the computer and car fired straight away and idled like normal. Put it in gear, engaged the clutch and the engine stopped. Burnt out the same diode in the computer. Checked the coils and they are fine. Wondering on the next step to take. Please help me. Can't keep replacing computers.. Car is a *** import...

BURNING SMELL AND CAR SHUTDOWN


Not good. Better have that car checked out asap by a qualified electrician since you have a nasty situation there. Smells like a massive short has invaded your car.

I was driving my 2001 Alero when all of a sudden the fan turned on full blast, and my car filled with smoke on the inside so bad I could barely breath. After I pulled over and the smoke went away, I w


From your description I would guess it was most likely an electrical short and subsequent melting of wire insulation. But that is assuming you mean the blower fan came on full blast. Did the smoke smell like something was burning? The loss of your dash lights is probably just a blown fuse, probably related to the electrical fire you somehow avoided. Either way, I would take it to a professional repair shop so they can find out where the short is. This is not something to be taken lightly, nor should you try to fix it yourself.

2003 cts smells like its on fire


I had the same problem. The dealership said it was a dirty cabin air filter. An ace mechanic diagnosed it as a very small oil leak from the valve cover gasket heating up as it ran down the side of the engine. We replaced the gasket and the intermittent burning smell disappeared.

I have a 1988 toyota pickup 22r must rev the engine manually to heat it up. The choke does not engage. I can smell gas inside the car and after high speed driving (60-70 mph) the idle becomes rough at...


Sounds like you have some significant carburetor or fuel line problems. I wouldn't drive this thing at all if you smell gas inside the car. Gas fumes are more explosive than gasoline itself. One small electrical spark and at best, you'll explode and die. At worst, you may end up with burns all over your body and spend the rest of your life in terrible pain.

My steering has gone hard only when turning there was a sudden hissing noise what could this be hope you can help dum blonde


are you leaking power steering fluid? is there any left in the car? normally all you have for power steering is a pump with fluid and an assist ram, if you hear hissing my guess would be that you blew the High end hose in the system, if it happened while driving with little turning such as freeway driving, you wouldn't notice until you got off and were driving slower and making more turns,, check your fluid, if its empty filling it won't do much good until the hose is replaced, but don't drive to many miles as it will end up burning out the pump

2001 aurora when fan is on high for a period of time it smells like the header is burning.


Not sure what a burning header smells like, but I would expect two possible smells. First, if the blower motor itself is going, you might smell the windings getting hot - like a transformer burning. If this were the case I would expect that the motor wouldn't spin on the low speeds.
The other smell you sometimes get is when the heater core leaks. Then you will get a coolant smell inside the car and sometimes (usually) a wet carpet as well.

Burned smell coming inside the car(pathfinder 1998) while long journey.


Dear Sir,
As you said while driving burning smell comes, if it occur in this condition 1. at hill side road 2. you trying go up side on slope or 3. you are in traffic on slope. basically what happen due to over riding or you can say you are in 2nd or 3 rd gear and you moving towards up side you will press clutch half and press accelerator , that will cause clutch burning if having problem in pickup then get replace clutch kit assay,if you are not facing any problem with car pickup you can drive it till you feel problem in pickup. it will not stop suddenly it will give indication with pickup loss then go and replace it .till drive the car don't worry. Thanks

A major short. I wouldn't use the car. Especially if you smelled a burning smell. because your car can catch fire. This is very rare to happen to a car, but take it to an electrical system repair garage.

You have a failed output section inside the radio. If you remove the radio, and take it apart, you will see some burnt capacitors at the very back side of the PC board. This is, unfortunatly, a very common problem with those cars. You are going to have to get another radio, the expense for the manufacturer to fix is is more expense than a replacement. Sorry, but I have seen this situation too many times.
