I think the first thing you should do is( SHUT THE ENGINE OFF) when you are fueling up. The engine running will cause static electricity, which can cause a spark to you fuel nozzel, then boom and you are burnt up along with your car. As to you running problem when fueling up, som cars have a sensor in the fue tank mesuring tank pressure. with the cap off there is no pressure

Almost unable to turn steering wheel.Heat smell coming from around Alternator belt but belt runnig fine and tension good. When turning wheel after 5 minutes engine running the ESP ABS and Alternator lights...

engine RPM must be near 800 not 400.
for all accessories to work , alternator, and P/S and A/C

so RPM is first.
next is belts must not slip.

the engine is running too slow. that is called bad idle controls
the PCM controls idle at all times perfectly
so its lost control and that is causes by 50 reasons.
get it serviced, is what you do.
or learn to fix cars. if you didnt notice low RPM then you need to learn that first.,

low rpm can be cause by
1: never getting a tuneup ever?
2: bad spark. weak or worse dead plugs.
3: bad fuelling, (too lean, or to rich misfiring)
4:bad engine, (50 reason) but can be vacuum leaks or ISC valve stuck closed, or EGR valve stuck open.

next time ALT lamp comes on , use your right foot to raise rpm to 800 or more, id bet the alt light goes out, and the P./S pump wakes up.

I have a masda 2000 4 cylender whit the a/c running and siting at ataffic light the idleing goes from 800rmps to 700rmp the the engin shakes

rpm range sounds right, when was the last time you had a tune up? if over 100,000 miles I'm sure new plugs with help with better MPG and a smoother idle.

RPM is over 400 rpm higher than it should be with no gas pedal.

Could be several things.. I would suggest replace the neutral safety switch, all O2 sensors and fuel and air filters, PVC valve and if needed plugs n wires..
The issue could also be a bad throttle body.. Should be a good idea to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine - get the codes and then you will know more of what you are dealing with..

Have a great day !!

2002 honda odyssey when idling temp goes in the red.

check & see if fuse for rad fan is blown, relay in circuit may be faulty, or fan itself shot. Your manual should tell you where fuse & relay are, and you do know how to by-pass all of them to test if fan is good or not don't you?
