Why Do I Smell Burning Engine Oil?

Why Do I Smell Burning Engine Oil?

Why Do I Smell Burning Oil? What’s that smell?  Do you smell burning oil coming from your engine? There are many reasons why your car might smell like burning oil.  Usually it’s due to engine oil landing on something hot and burning off.  This could be from a sloppy oil change or a variety of engine oil leaks.  One of the more common reasons is a leaking valve cover gasket.  The valve cover gasket loses its seal and engine oil leaks onto the exhaust manifold and burns.  Smoke can then waft into the cabin.     Is it safe to drive my vehicle with a leaking valve cover gasket? The short answer is No.  Your vehicle is losing engine oil.  If your car drives too long without engine oil it can do serious damage.  If the leak is small and your vehicle has the proper amount of engine oil you can drive until you have the means to fix, but should be high priority.

3 Reason Why Your Brake Pedal May Be Going To The Floor

    Why Does My Brake Pedal Go to the Floor? If your brake pedal is sinking to the floor most likely you have an issue with your brake fluid.  The braking system on most modern vehicles works by a hydraulic system.  A hydraulic brake system is filled with fluid.  When you apply the brake pedal the fluid travels through both the brake master cylinder and slave cylinder forcing pistons to apply the brakes. 3 Reasons Why Your Brake Pedal May Be Going To The Floor 1. YOU HAVE AIR IN THE BRAKE LINES Remember, our brake system works under pressure and air doesn’t provide any resistance.  So, if there are air pockets in the braking system it may cause your brake pedal to slowly sink to the floor.    2. YOU HAVE A BRAKE FLUID LEAK If the braking system works by compressing fluid and there isn’t enough fluid in the system, you will experience a spongy pedal or worst case a brake pedal that sinks to the floor.  ... read more
