How do i get rid of fish smells out of the carpet in my car?

You may have to have the carpet cleaned as fish smell is hard to remove . You can hire a wet and dry vacuum cleaner from Woolworths , It should do the job.

My 2004 Jeep liberty limited smells very hot on back underside what might this be

I would take a look at your catalytic converter. Sometimes these can get red hot. Often related to oxygen sensor issue. Past that suggestion, I can't help more. Good luck

My heater wont work, my car smells like fish & chips, overheats

If your inside fogs up your windshield , i would say its a heater core leak. Check your coolant level it could be very low due to the leak.

Engine smells like rubber burning and temperature gauge at normal temperature. Water/coolant leaking out of reservoir and needs to be filled ever 2 days. Oil level is normal, but when it's hot outside the...

Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.

I would suggest checking the alternator. It sounds like the stator windings are shorted. I have had similar smells both a Nissan Sentra and a Jeep Wagoneer. Both times it was the alternator going out. The smell would get worse when the air conditioning or other accessories were in use. In both cases the alternator heated up very quickly.

The second suggestion would be an accessory drive belt slipping due to a bearing in an idler pully going bad. Look for a very glazed surface on the drive belt.
