Your cooling unit may have a leak, and you are smelling the coolant, though normally this would be ammonia.

You may have food that is spoiling as well. Check the condensate / drip tray at the back of the fridge (inside). Look for water building up (likely green as well). If water is not draining, clean the hose that leads from the drip tray to the exterior back of the fridge. There will be a small evaporator cup / tray that the hose empties into. Check the end of the hose for insect activity. Note that it is normal for the end to be crimped, or it may have a plastic plug (perforated) inserted as well.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

Gas smell


This is a nasty problem with this car. It is the smell of mostly Sulphur. It comes when the Catalytic Convertor gets faulty. Replace it and get Smell-free. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Nasty smell in garage.....think its coming from refrigerator


It's either the drip tray which is removeable from the front, or, mice are playing in the drip tray under the compressor. Soak in up, rinse with some ammonia water & repeat a few times. Rinse well when done. Line up some sticky traps behind the fridge. The mice found a playground amd they will return.

Strong Diesel Smell inside HJ Turbo Diesel Landcruiser


Since you didnt notice any change in the performance of your engine, ill presume there's nothing wrong with your fuel injectors.
look for moisture around your gas tank cap, the hose and clamps going down the tank, around the fuel gauge sending unit of your tank. have your fuel line checked from the tank to your fuel injection pump, give particular importance around the connections of your fuel filter, fuel pump, and the return hose from your fuel injection going back to your tank.
Diesel do emit strong hazardous odors that may stick on carpets inside your car.

Car starts fine...but dosent run


ok... first question... the Tach(rpm guage) does change when you rev your engine in either P or neutral? Also.. is your check engine light on? any odd smells(burnt eggs) if your check engine light is on.. it's most likely a fualty sensor.. based on educated guess idle air control valve .. ot maybe posibly a faulty throttle position sensor.. if you have a foul smell.. similar to eggs or just nasty... could be a catalytic converter went bad... reply and lemme know if i help.. or raise new questions :D
