Question about Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

I got in my car this morning and I got about 1/2 block away from the house and I started to smell something. Then Smoke started to come out of the vents on the dash board. I have just replaced a unit that plugs into the fan because the fan only worked on high. now it works just fine. What could the burning smell and smoke mean?

I assume you replaced the resistor. Often, the resistor failure is caused by the switch, and replacing the resistor will result in burning up another resistor. Recommend you look at your new resistor and if it's burning up, replace the switch. Let me know if you need any instructions.

For an explanation, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6234839-doesn_t_heater_or_air_conditioner_blow . These are generic instructions.

White smoke


from where, end of tail pipe or ?????????????
tail smoke has 2 types,. oil and steam.
1: steam smells sweet(glycol) and goes away fast.
2: oil smoke, smells like burnt oil and takes a vary long time to go byebye.

or is normal.
all cars burning gasoline make water (H2O) as a byproduct, of combustion the seems to go away on a hot day.
but really does not, it just seems to.
on a cold day all cars make steam
if yours is and your neighbors car dont at the SAME time (out door temps same) then your steam is wrong. a bad sign of bad head gasket or far far worse , a cracked head.
did you do the pre fall service, and check antifreeze protection levels.

Hi. This is a common fault with m50/52/52tu engines. Engine is flooded because you did not warm it up. Must be out of blue on temp gauge be for you turn off.

White smoke is coming out of the tail pipe after changing my oil when i start my car in the morning. It goes away after a block or 2 blocks down the road. Any answers???


I gather you are sure it is smoke and not water vapour from the car warming up? Cars can run rich at start up until it warms up (automatic choke). You may have also overfilled the oil a little this can cause some burning through breathers. Unless it is excessive I would not worry too much about it - keep an eye on your oil and coolent levels.

My engine is smoking when i start engine on mornings


sounds like valve guids are wearing out.. drying out and cracking. only fix is to replace them. or try a heavier oil. sometimes that will help depending on the severity of the problem.

White smoke from exhaust


Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
Rich
