    Default Toyota Altis 2009 Petrol-Burning smell from Engine

    Hi Guys I am having very strange problem with my Car.


    i bought the car last november and milage is around 6000KM.


    After some 2 to 3KM drive, when i parked car a burning smell started to appear from Engine. it is quite prominent and you can smell it even standing 2feet away from car.


    i went to Toyota Isb motors and they told me that nothing is wrong with car and if there is something wrong i will get indication on my dashboard.


    they even checked the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) and it was ok (acc to them).


    There is no leakage, Brakes are fine.


    Any help or suggestion will be highly appreciated.

    Don't worry it's normal. There is nothing like petrol burning smell. It's the smell of Heated metal parts. Befikar ho kar chalao

    I will highly recommend you to get the Petrol of your tank checked!!!

    Some petrol pumps which are not officially Company operated pumps are selling smuggled petrol by mixing it with company provided petrol.

    My Baleno 2003 was knocked down just a week back due to this problem but unfortunately it broke my valves.

    Welcome to the world of desi Toyota motoring.....no wonder they call it the 'rolla' To be on the safe side, just have it checked at another dealership. At times the showroom people spray motoroil mixed with petrol to clean the cars when they are offloaded. The sticky thing forms a clear thin coat on the engine surface and at places of depth it accumulates. Suggest you have the engine washed with high pressure WATER only. Then see, otherwise revert to the dealer.

    Thanks but it is not petrol burning smell. it is something like oil burning smell and to be more presise it is coming from somewhere between radiator and ATF level check valve.

    I dont have expert knowledge but I can say that if you car is auto, some times it comes when the car is driven in (2) or (L) Gears for a longer period.

    please check sometimes this sort of smell appears when a few drops of mobile oil remains outside the engine surface.

    The burning smell is surly your ATF.


    Even if slightly discolored, get it changed, and also change the filter for the automatc gearbox with it. Use ATF from Toyota and no other!

    Bhai jan like i said before its not petrol smell. it is like oil burning smell coming from space between radiator and ATF gauge. the mechanic even checked the silencer and it has normal smell.
