My car is 95 Neon Sports Sedan 4 door. By turning on all the electrical
system on without starting the engine, no odor comes out. So it seems
that's no problem with electrical system. And I smelt the odor from the
emission. It's not from there, either. The last thing that I did was going
under the car with starting the engine. I found some plastic stuff attached
to the emission pipe. (I think the smell might be a burning plastic after I
saw that, now I'm not sure what kind of smell it is) I tried to get rid of
most of them but there were still some left that I couldn't remove. When I
drove, I still smelt some odor but not as much as before. Would this smell
be the plastic bag melting?
For the source of the smell, I'm pretty sure that it's not from under the
hood because when I stop the car, the smell always comes from the back of
the car. When I smelt the odor, I opened the hood immediately, but I
couldn't smell any odor from inside the hood. But I don't know whether I
need to go under the car to smell again. Do I? Thanks a lot.
I'm planning to drive a long distance by this car if this problem can be
fixed. So any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks a million.
