SOURCE: burning chemical smell coming from vents when

This is most likely a blown heater core. It's almost sweet smelling, correct? If so, have your mechanic or dealership check it out right away, this will cause a low coolant and possibly an overheating issue.

SOURCE: Burning smell when ac is turn on

well as for the ford man sorry to here that. I am a holden man myself, but it is most likly that your fan switch is on its way out if you have a test light just pop the switch out and see if you have power to your high setting if not replace your switch. And for mgauthier I would suggest you just reroute your overflow pipe so it overflows onto the ground not onto hot metal parts. But you shouldn't have coolant coming out your overflow all the time. As for burning smell it was probably the switch burning out and failing.

SOURCE: chev aveo, no heat when sitting still

First....check your radiator...make sure its full. No water = no heat. Have you noticed that the knob controlling your heater has become much easier to move? If so, your cable may have come loose. Disconnect your Neg. battery cable. Remove radio, ac/heater control panel. This usually involves removing a few screws. Find your heater control valve located behind above items. You will see what looks like a plastic box behind the dash. On that box, you will find a cable mounted there that moves a lever back and forth. Make sure it moves the lever when you move your control knob. This is your heater control valve. While in there, look for any loose vacuum lines, connections, etc.

A little common sense goes a long way.
If anyone has been working on car in the same area i.e. radio..etc. this could cause one to investigate possible problems as a result.

SOURCE: AC vents on passenger side blowing warm air even

You will probably need a new RF temperature actuator which is on top of your HVAC box/under dash pad.($400 + at dealership.) I have replaced MANY....They get stuck and dont know where they are...If you want to try and recalibrate them yourself you can remove the HVAC/ECAS fuse in the underhood fuse block for 30 seconds(engine running) and reinstall the fuse and wait(IMPORTANT) 2 not operate the a/c controls during this time...(engine still running) ..Then shut off vehicle and wait 30 seconds.. start the engine again and operate the A/C and see what happens....Hope this helps!!

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out

Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

Fuse for heater in 2006 Ford Escape

Replace the thermostat and if that doesn't work have the heater core purged of its air while engine is at normal driving temps. Have this done professionally or wear really good gloves do that you don't get burned.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning

If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

Lost heat fan still blows cold only and car overheating

Sounds like a possible water pump problem with the over heating part. About the heater only blowing cold you may have to get it "recharged"

No heat in a 1996 towncar

after checking coolant level,thermostat operation and if heater hoses feel hot(be careful not to burn your hand) the temperature blend door is probably at fault. It directs the air from the fan blower motor either across your heater core or A/C evaporator, giving you either hot or cold air. Most cases the dash has to come out to replace this $80 electronic motor. Good luck, Mr.P

I have a 06 2500 dodge sprinter and the fan control speed wheel isnt working. Settings 1-4 will not work. I can feel hot or cold air coming out of the vents while I'm driving but cannot adjust it.

I have changed the resistor 2 times for the same problem. Its under the hood behind the fan motor insulation.
Mine burned because of fan motor frozen & stuck in the winter. Solution is to let the engine warm up before turning the fan on.
Cheers, Brian

MPV 2002. Black particles come out from air vents

I get the feeling this is the first time you've used the heater? Its probably accumulated dust. As long as you don't get a burning smell or smell exhaust fumes you should be ok after a few hours use.

Heater not working

I would check if your vent to the outside is open. If it is I would check the vacum hose that controls the vent to open and close.
