Check the exhaust side of your valve cover gasket for evidence of an oil leak. Burning synthetic oil tends to smell like hot plastic.

If you smell steam/water/antifreeze inside the vehicle, then most likely you have a heater core issue. If it is more 'overheating' smell outside of the vehicle, it could be overflow container leaking on hot parts, leaking hose, radiator leak, etc.

Mazda eunos leaking cold water, engine running hot and smells like burning rubber, temp gage is not showing a problem. Could it be the themosat?


Unless your gauge is faulty you engine probably is not overheated. Any vehicle engine at normal operating temperature is hot. I'm guessing but I bet your normal operating temperature is about 185 degrees. You say it is "leaking cold water". Were you using the air conditioner when this took place? If so that is normal condensation. As for the burning smell I would look at the exaust area to see if a piece of trash has caused it.

My honda accord wagon smells hot i stop running car, ther,s no leaks do i need a termostat?


You may have a bad thermostat or a weak water pump or a clogged radiator. Smell does not indicate if its hot. The gauge or coolant light might suggest its getting hot. You may have a fuel control issue that is overheating the catalytic converter which would smell or an oil leak that is dripping onto a hot surface causing a smell. You may have a real small coolant leak that you cant see that could cause this also.

might be water inside the car leaked in slowly from the soft top in heavy rain, does the car smell slighly inside when all windows are closed? take the seats out and remove the water under the carpets, then leave everything to dry by slightly opening the windows for moisture to escape, try parking the car in the sun..........
