Hi it sounds like you've "cooked" the engine lost all water and blown headgasket unfortunatly this will be a very expensive repair and depending on the amount of damage to the top end COULD mean a replacement engine chris

2004alero burning alot of oil and wont go over 35mph. Losing power when you go uphills. What could the problem be


If it is burning oil, as in blue smoke out the exhaust then changes are you have top end damage such as failed piston rings which is preventing the car from developing proper compression.

Why is my 1998 toyota corolla oil getting short


Is there any white smoke? Could be your valve stem seals. But the Toyota Corolla in this year's is known for burning oil. If you are having to add more than 1 quart per month. You may have a problem. Check for the obvious. Milky oil. Idle it to op temp and smell exhaust for burnt oil smell. Hit the gas...see any white smoke? Open your radiator cap after running and smell for exhaust... If all is well then you have a normal running toyota corolla. These cars are champs. They just tend to burn a Lil oil here and there.

No power accelerating uphill but ok on level and downhill cruising.


Probably the catalytic converter. When the cat starts to go bad that`s what normally happens, do you notice an odd smell from the exhaust?

Burning smell


vechicle could be burning oil.or look under hood for valve cover gasket leaks. oil leaking on hot engine and exhaust manifold will cause burn smell.check drive belt could be slipping.make sure brakes not dragging or if you replace brakes pads you will smell burn smell until new brake shoes or pads break in.

94 Cadillac Eldorado overheating uphill


This actually sounds like your motor is not the problem it sounds as
thougth your transmission is in need of work. if you have flushed your
system also may look at your oil pump system as the change in pitch of the road to climb hills may infact be pulling sludge against the sump
tube screen and plugging the oil pump. these are the only two reasons I can see for this to happen if system only dose this when climbing a hill
.

Car: 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX. feels like losing power on uphill drive, and when given more gas, something smells like burning..


It may be the transmission is slipping under load. Check the transmission oil.If the oil is a dark colour and smells burnt
this is probably the problem.

In the last month car has had three occurances where it runs rough and rumbles. When it happens the car smells like maybe something burning or rotten egg. The temp gauge has been fluctuating at 150,...


Is it a sweet smell or a burnt oil smell? If you are having fluctuation water temps then I would look into the cooling system. That would not explain running rough though. Check your plugs, wires coil pack and fuel pressure.

1995 dodge stratus smells like something burning, can't find any leaks. Smoke at back of motor. Temp gauge goes half way when I smell it. It never runs hot. What can this be???


sounds like oil leaking on the exhaust, this can be engine oil or power steering fluid, have the car put up in the air and checked, this can cause a fire if not repaired.

Lack of power


is the trans fluid level ok? check the color of the fluid, should be a nice cherry red color, and notice the smell of the fluid. if it smells burnt, or like the smell of burned brakes. if you have the bad smell, the clutches are burning, time to rebuild.
