The Nose Knows – 6 Car Smells To Watch Out For

The Nose Knows

If you smell something strange coming from your car, don’t ignore it.

When it comes to your car’s health, your nose knows. Pay attention to unusual smells. Abnormal smells are one of the first warning signs that something may be wrong with your car. Strange odors may signal the start of mechanical problems that can lead to costly repairs and put you in danger of an accident.

When you start smelling something strange coming from your car you should not ignore it, instead bring your car to a certified mechanic as soon as possible.

 

Six Car Smells That Mean Trouble

 

6 Car Smells To Watch Out For Infographic 

 

My Car Smells Like Rotten Eggs

If your car smells like rotten eggs this could mean that your catalytic converter has gone bad. It creates this smells when your catalytic converter is not converting your engine exhaust correctly – not only is this bad for the environment but if left unchecked it can lead to a costly repair.

My Car Has a Sweet Syrupy Smell

If your car is emitting a sweet syrup smell this could mean that engine coolant is leaking from your car’s coolant system. This is going to be a smell almost like maple syrup. This can be very dangerous and lead to overheating and breakdowns.

My Car Smells Like a Burning Carpet

If you smell a burning carpet smell coming from your car this is one to pay special attention to as it usually indicates a problem with your brakes. Your brakes can save your life, they are a critical safety feature of your car, so if you are smelling this odor during normal driving conditions be sure to bring your car in for a brake check right away.

My Car Smells Like Burning Oil

If your car smells like burning oil than chances are you have an oil leak. Cars can get oil leaks for a number of reasons and all of them are cause for a visit to the mechanic. If you suspect an oil leak you can check for drips under your car in the driveway, or let your car warm up and check under the hood for smoke.

My Car Smells Like Burning Rubber

If your car smells like burning rubber it could indicate that drive belts or hoses are rubbing against rotating pulleys. This smell could also indicate an overheated clutch. If you are going to take a look under the hood, make sure not to touch anything while the engine is still running and hot.

My Car Smells Like Gasoline All The Time

While it’s normal to pick up the scent of gas at the gas station, it’s not normal for your car to smell like gas all the time. If you smell gas frequently while driving this can be a sign of a gas leak within your fuel injectors or gas tank. Smelling gas frequently can also be a fire hazard, so this is something to get checked out by a mechanic right away.

Want to Destroy Your Car? Try These 7 Bad Habits

Are you guilty of any of these habits that could hurt your car?

Your car is a big purchase – something you want to take care of.

However, everyone has bad habits, most of us don’t even know we are doing them. Want to extend the life of your car? Make sure you aren’t guilty of these 7 bad habits that can quickly kill your car!

 

7 things that destroy your car infographic

 

Riding Your Brakes

Don’t ride your brakes going downhill.

Sometimes you need to brake to keep from going too fast, but don’t brake unnecessarily as this can build up heat in the brake pads and rotors causing wear and warping.

Haven’t had your brakes checked lately? Come into AAMCO Minnesota for a brake inspection, your brakes keep you safe!

Consistently Running Low on Gas

Do you have enough gas in your tank?

You notice your fuel gauge is running low, so you stop at the nearest gas station and put $10 into your tank. We’ve all been there – you don’t always have the cash to fill up your tank. However, consistently only putting a few gallons into your car rather than filling it up can wreak havoc on your fuel system in a couple ways.

Some fuel pumps stay cool by staying submerged in the fuel tank, if you are regularly running on less than a quarter tank of gas then you may find yourself needing a fuel pump replacement much quicker.

If you are constantly running on low fuel you are also making your car draw from the very bottom of your fuel tank, where any sediments in the gasoline have settled. Over time you may be pulling these sediments from the bottom of the tank into your fuel lines where they can clog your fuel filers and in some cases slip into your engine causing bigger problems down the line.

Not Using The Parking Brake

Using your parking brake helps your transmission last longer.

You might think you only need to use your parking brake if you are parked on a hill, uneven or slippery surface. However, engaging your parking brake, even on level ground, helps to take the weight of your car off of a piece of metal in your transmission called the parking pawl. It’s a small piece that can wear out easily and using your parking brake will help it to last longer.

 

Carrying Too Much Weight

The more weight you are carrying the more stress on your car.

If you are carrying a lot of unnecessary weight in your car you are putting stress on your brakes, suspension, and drivetrain. Try not to lug around any weight you don’t need.

 

Ignoring Your Check Engine Light

Your check engine light is the first sign of trouble.

It might seem convenient to ignore this little light and keep driving if nothing seems immediately wrong – but your check engine light is a warning sign you should not ignore. Driving around with a small issue over time can lead to a much larger and more expensive problem.

Not Checking Your Tire Pressure

Tire pressure isn’t just about having a flat tire.

Making sure your tires are properly inflated is crucial for making sure your car is getting the best fuel economy, otherwise you might be spending more at the pump than you need to be. Proper inflation will also make sure your tires are wearing evenly which will make them last longer.

 

Skipping Regular Maintenance

Regularly scheduled maintenance extends the life of your car.

There are a few things you do on a regular schedule to help your car perform better, longer.

Oil Changes

Oil changes are typically recommended every 3,000 miles. However, drivers who are in stop and go traffic may need to change their oil more often and it is always best to consult a trusted mechanic or your owner’s manual for the oil change schedule that is best for your car.

Other Fluid Levels

Oil isn’t the only fluid your car needs to run. There are many other fluids that should be checked and topped off during your regular maintenance including brake fluid, transmission fluid, engine coolant and power steering fluid.

What’s in a Tune-Up?

Prevent and Detect Problems

Regular tune-ups can help prevent problems, and catch problems earlier before they become big costly repairs.

Taking your car in for tune-ups can make the difference between expensive breakdowns and keeping your car running smoothly for years to come. While a tune-up isn’t a cure-all, it can help you and your mechanic stay on top of any potential problems before they cause permanent damage,

 

What Happens When I Take My Car in for a Tune-Up?

 

Performance Checks

White car cornering in mountain road with speed blurEvery tune-up should include a series of performance tests to get a baseline of how your car’s engine is performing. These performance tests look at:

  • Battery voltage – your batteries ability to charge and hold charge
  • Power balance – identifies mechanical problems like worn rings, bad head gasket, bad cams, and leaky exhaust valves
  • Engine vacuum – detects air leaks and exhaust restrictions
  • Faulty codes – verifies that no fault codes are present
  • Exhaust emissions – tests your car’s ability to meet emission standards
  • Idle speeds – checks how your vehicle idles and what mixture of fuel it is using while it idles
  • Ignition timing – detects possible sensor and computer problems related to your ignition

 

Replacements

While a tune-up could help you find any number of things that need replacement as needed, there are three main areas you should be focusing on.

Spark Plugs

Spark plugs need to be changed periodically as they wear down every time they fire. After about 45,000 miles your spark plugs have fired 60-80 million times and they have begun to erode. Instead of having sharp edges they will become rounded and dull and the distance between spark plugs will have increased, causing potential misfires.

Oxygen Sensors

Underperforming O2 sensors can cause a variety of problems with the drivability of your car. If your vehicle needs new O2 sensors it might not pass emissions. To prevent these problems your mechanic should check if your O2 sensors need to be replaced at your tune-up.

Filters

Fuel filters, air filters, PCV valve and breather filters should all be checked at your tune-up and replaced as needed.

 

Cleaning

While the need to clean your fuel injectors and intake system is not as important as it once was, it is still good to make sure they are cleaned if needed.

Fuel residue deposits on your injectors and this can restrict the amount of fuel delivered to your engine. This can result in misfire and deterioration of engine performance. This residue can also accumulate on the back of your intake valves causing hesitation problems with your engine. Cleaning is suggested if you are noticing performance issues or you have reached over 50,000 miles.

How Often Should You Get a Tune-Up?

Tune-up intervals vary between cars.

image - mechanic working on underside of car on lift in repair shop.If you have an older vehicle with a non-electronic ignition you should consider tune-ups every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. Newer cars that have electronic ignition and fuel injection systems have a much wider range – 25,000 to 100,000 miles. If you do a lot of stop and go driving or are regularly pulling heavy loads then you may need tune-ups more often.

You should always refer to your owner’s manual, or a trusted mechanic to determine your recommended tune-up intervals. It is in your best interest to adhere to these directions in order to keep your car working at its peak efficiency.

 3 Signs You Might Need a Tune-Up

  • Car stalls a lot
  • Engine runs rough when idling or accelerating
  • Car is hard to start

 

Tune-In and Tune-Up with AAMCO Minnesota

A tune-up with your local AAMCO Minnesota location means our mechanics will inspect every system in your vehicle. Our tune-ups include:

  • Installation of new spark plugs
  • Inspection of spark plug wires and distributor cap
  • Idle speed adjustments

Check Engine Lights

A check engine light indicates a problem with your vehicle.

A check engine light is one of the first warning signs of a problem with your car.

Check engine light technology has been included in all cars manufactured in the U.S. since 1996. Your check engine light is part of program in your car’s computer system that is constantly checking your vehicle’s sensors to look for problems.

If your check engine light comes on it could indicate any number of problems and means that it is time to come into AAMCO Minnesota for your free check engine light diagnostic test.

 

What Does a Check Engine Light Mean?

The check engine warning light is there to help you know when there is a problem with your cars engine and other systems. Your check engine light can indicate a huge number of problems, from a serious repair to a loose gas cap.

 

5 Common Causes for a Check Engine Light

While your check engine light can indicate hundreds of problems all with different causes, there are five common reasons why check engine lights turn on.

1) Spark Plug Wiring Problems

Spark plugs wear out over time and this can cause your engine to shake, stall, choke or chug. Your car’s spark plugs are what cause the explosions in your car’s engine that allow the cylinders to move. No sparks means no combustion and no combustion in your engine means you aren’t going anywhere.

2) Mass Airflow Sensor Malfunction

Your mass airflow sensor measures the amount of air flowing into your engine, without this sensor your engine can really suffer. If this sensor is malfunctioning your car may become hard to start, drag, jerk or hesitate when accelerating, you may idle too fast or too flow and your engine can hiccup.

3) 02 Sensor Replacement

Your 02 sensors determine the amount of oxygen (02) that goes into your car’s engine to fire the pistons and power your engine. The 02 sensor reads measurements and is able to make adjustments to the mixture of fuel and oxygen. If your 02 sensors need to be replaced, your engine may not be receiving the right mixture of oxygen and fuel.

5) Loose Gas Cap

While it may sound silly, a loose gas cap is one of the most common culprits for a check engine light. If your check engine light comes on after pulling away from the gas station, pull over, turn off your engine and tighten your gas cap. Once you have tightened it, restart your car and if the light stays off you have fixed the problem. If the light stays on, then it indicates there is something else wrong, but at least you have ruled out one easy cause!

Catalytic Converter Replacement

This is one of the more expensive reasons not to ignore your check engine light. Your catalytic converter is a part of your car’s exhaust system and helps to change harmful pollution into less harmful emissions. If the catalytic converter has gone bad it has to be replaced, or you risk your car not running. If you are experiencing trouble with your exhaust system, schedule an appointment with your local Minnesota AAMCO location for expert muffler and exhaust repair.

Flashing Lights vs. Static Lights

Typically there are two types of check engine light alerts, one light that is flashing and one that is not flashing. A non-flashing check engine light typically indicates a less serious problem than a flashing check engine light. While a non-flashing light may indicate a less severe problem, you should still get this checked out as soon as possible.

image - An extreme closeup of an illuminated yellow-orange check engine indicator dashboard light isolated on black background.

While many of today’s cars are smart enough with computer technology to compensate for performance when there is a problem, you still don’t want to drive around for too long with a check engine light. Driving your vehicle with a non-flashing check engine light could increase your car’s emissions and decrease your car’s fuel economy. Ignoring these warnings for too long could lead to a more critical, and expensive issues.

AAMCO Minnesota can help you diagnose your check engine light, flashing or non-flashing, with our free check engine light diagnostic test.

 

What To Do If Your Check Engine Light Is On

It’s important not to simply ignore your check engine light if it comes on.

Even if your car is running fine at the time, leaving the problem could lead to bigger problems down the line.

If your check engine light comes on, look for a problem that requires immediate attention. Is the light flashing, or red? This indicates a serious problem. Also, check for any other warning lights on your dashboard and your dashboard gauges. In some cars, a yellow check engine light means there is a problem that needs to be investigated and a red or flashing light means there is a serious problem and you need to stop right away. Your gauges will help you to determine problems like overheating and low oil pressure. If your car is indicating there is a serious problem you should pull over and turn off your engine as soon as possible.

When your check engine light comes on, you should bring your car to a mechanic as soon as possible to have your check engine light diagnosed. If you check engine light is on, AAMCO Minnesota offers a free check engine light diagnostic test.

5 Transmission Problems You Need to Know

How do you know if you have transmission problems?

Here are five ways you can tell if your transmission needs to checked.

Some simple warning signs that the transmission is having problems:

  • Transmission is slow to respond when shifting
  • Grinding, shaking, vibrating
  • Won’t go into gear
  • Slipping between gears
  • Burning smell and transmission overheating

These are symptoms of problems that could cost you a lot of money if you don’t get to a mechanic and have them checked out.

Slow Response or Delay in Shifting

If your car hesitates or does not go into gear, this is a definite sign of trouble in your transmission. If there is a delay when shifting into or out of park, you should make an appointment with your local AAMCO Minnesota transmission repair center. Manual transmissions can have the same lag in response issue, but after shifting into gear the engine will rev to really high RPM’s, but the car won’t move as fast as it sound like it should be going. This could be a clutch problem, or something more serious.

Grinding, Shaking and Other Bad Vibrations

Your car is supposed to run smoothly, without any drama like shaking or jolting, or grinding sounds and vibrating. For manual transmissions, if your car is going into gear with difficulty and making grinding noises, or if it feels like it’s gears are grinding as they engage, it’s a sign that the transmission is in need of some serious attention from a certified AAMCO technician.Image of automatic transmission internals, lots of gears, cogs interlocking.

An automatic transmission is more subtle in its signals, but they are unmistakable. Transitions into gear and between gears will cause some vibration at first; but then, as the problem persists, gear changes become more jarring and cause shaking. You should take your car to an AAMCO shop to be checked and serviced.

Transmission Won’t Go Into Gear

If the car will not shift after engaging the clutch and trying to move the stick, check the transmission fluid level. Also make sure you’re using the right type, or thickness, of fluid. The source of the problem could even be the car’s computer system. If you’ve already inspected the fluid, try resetting the car’s computer by detaching the battery for thirty minutes. After you reattach the battery the system should reset itself. It might take up 30 minutes for the system to reset, so make sure you have plenty of time. If these steps don’t work, then it’s time to take it to AAMCO.

Gears Slipping

If the car slips in and out of gear or pops into neutral while you’re driving, you’re facing a serious safety issue. The transmission should stay in gear until a shift is performed (manually or automatically). When you step on the gas, you need – expect – power to be delivered to the wheels, especially while you’re in motion and facing potentially dangerous situations. If you are experience gears slipping like this, you need to go AAMCO immediately. Do not ignore this issue and hope it goes away. Call or schedule an appointment online today!Image - woman looking at engine overheated and smoking, hood up.

Burning Smell – Hot Transmission

Any smell of something burning from your car is not a good sign. Transmission fluid keeps the parts lubricated and cool so they don’t wear out prematurely and break down, potentially ruining the entire transmission. If the fluid overheats and breaks down, the transmission will run too hot and give off a burning smell. The extreme heat will result in increased friction and buildup of sludge and potential debris. Take heed, because if it goes on too long, the transmission will be damaged and possibly break down completely. Many times this is due to low fluid levels or incorrect fluid types – two other issues which should be self-evident if you are sure to regularly check the transmission fluid as recommended by your owner’s manual.

Winter Prep Checklist for Your Car

Prepare Your Car for Winter

Do you have a checklist? Here’s one that’s easy and won’t cost a lot.

image of infographic winterize your car checklist - Check and fill fluids, Check battery, Check tires and brakes, Replace windshield wipers, Coolant system flushSeems like autumn just rolled in and now it’s about to roll on out. Winter’s great frozen air horn roars as it rumbles down on us. Start preparing for the long, cold, wet months ahead. One of the most important things – but often the last thing on people’s lists – to prep for winter is your car. Minnesota winters are not for the faint of heart, and Mother Nature will take any chance she gets to remind you who’s boss. The elements and random mishaps can combine to create situations that in winter have the potential to become dangerous or deadly very quickly. Don’t leave things to chance – there are many things you can do to prepare for a Minnesota winter. Here are a few things to check on your car to be sure you’re ready and don’t get stranded on that frozen road less travelled.

  • Check and fill fluids
  • Check battery
  • Check tires and brakes
  • Replace windshield wipers
  • Coolant system flush

✔ Check all fluids and flush the cooling system.

The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is usually recommended, but check your car owner’s manual for specific recommendations.

Overheating in engine is the most common cause of mechanical breakdown, summer or winter. Coolant (also called anti-freeze) protects your engine from freezing just as much as it protects from overheating. Coolant’s effectiveness can diminish over time, causing the radiator to rust and corrode. The cooling system can also become blocked with crud from oil, grease, scale, material decomposition, and other contaminants. So we highly recommend getting your cooling system serviced and checked at least once a year. What better time than right before winter!

✔ Have your battery checked with professional equipment.

A weak battery will only get worse and die in cold weather, possibly leaving you stranded. AAMCO battery service and diagnostics can determine the status and reliability of your battery. In most cases, the battery does not give warning signs before it fails. A battery three years old or older should be checked – and probably replaced.

✔ Check your tires & brakes.

Tires and brakes don’t last forever. Check your tires for proper inflation, tread depthInsert a penny into the tire tread with Lincoln's head down. If you can see the top part of his head or forehead, your tires are wearing out., and abnormal wear. If your alignment is off or suspension system is worn out or having problems, your tires will wear out faster and unevenly.

Have your brakes checked for wear – rotors, calipers, pads, pistons. Have the whole system checked to avoid any safety issues. Reliable brakes won’t help you stop faster on ice, but will help you maintain control of your car through winter conditions, such as slush or snowpack.

✔ Replace windshield wipers.

Don’t just check your windshield wipers – replace them. Unless you just replaced the blades a month or two ago, just put on new ones and know that you’re ready for whatever the weather or traffic throw at your windshield. Be sure to keep a jug of windshield wiper fluid in your trunk.

✔ Get a tune-up.

A tune-up is a good idea, especially if you haven’t had your car serviced in a while. It’s a cost-effective way to cover the bases and find anything that might cause problems when you least need them. Some basic fixes and maintenance steps can be done in a tune-up that will give you some peace of mind in the winter months.

  • Installation of new spark plugs
  • Idle speed adjustment, timing, choke, throttle linkage, spark plug wires, distributor cap
  • Comprehensive performance check for any drivability issues or computer system trouble codes.
  • 36-point Vehicle Courtesy Check to ensure critical systems are in good working order.

Other Things to Check

✔ Check heater, defroster, and A/C.

A car’s heater core is a radiator-like system that heats the cabin of your car. Hot coolant from the vehicle’s engine is passed through a pipe that winds around the core. Fins attached to the core tube serve to increase surface area to facilitate the transfer of heat to air. The air is forced over the fins by a fan and passed into the passenger compartment, keeping you nice and toasty warm.

Along with this system is the defroster and the air conditioning. Both of these systems are key to keeping the interior of your car fog-free, as well as mitigate ice and frost buildup on the exterior of the windows. If the air conditioning is not functioning properly, it won’t be able to perform one of its key functions – dehumidify the passenger cabin.

✔ Check and replace filters, such as oil, air, fuel, transmission, and positive crankcase ventilation (PCV).

What the heck are all these filters and where did they come from all of a sudden? All of these filters are important and should be checked or replaced as part of a regular maintenance schedule.
