Coming out of the ac vent. I turned the heater off. . . . . . The smell of smoke started to get heavier and heavier. I looked into the vent and noticed that there was smoke and fire billowing inside. . . . . Not sure where it was coming from. . . I got out of the truck, called fire/rescue, and began to get most of the belongings that I could. The truck was fully involved by time fire/rescue arrived on scene. I must say that, back in septmber I noticed that the radio which is still stock was wired incorrectly, I mentioned it the last time that I took the baby in for servicing. They said that they would have to take the dash out and have it re-wired the correct way. And that it would be an all day affair, I havent had the time to have that done, and my dealer doesnt offer loaner cars. Am I saying that this is the reason that this happened? I am not sure.

car   Cooling Fan problem of Mazda MAZDA6

The vehicle was a 2006 Mazda Mazda6. I noticed the cooling fan coming on every time I turn the car on and it doesn't turn off for several minutes after the car is turned off. The engine is running in the normal temperature range, so I don't think the fan should be running constantly. I took the car to my mechanic, who notified me of a recall by Mazda for the fan control module for the same production year and the same make/model. I reached out to Mazda, but they notified me my VIN didn't fall in the range of the recall. It seems odd that the same product would have the same issue in the same car but not be covered by the recall. I wanted to notify the NHTSA of the issue in hopes that Mazda would resolve the issue. Thanks. This cooling fan problem happened on Monday, May. 5, 2014.

car   Cooling Fan problem of Subaru Legacy

The vehicle is a 2002 Subaru Legacy.

The odor is strong enough that I am concerned about the possibility of a fire. The odor is strong enough that after driving the vehicle after a cold weather start my clothing smells like gasoline. This has been a reoccurring problem whenever the vehicle is started in cold weather. The problem occurred tonight at a temperature of 0 f. The problem has been occurring since before the date above, but I did not realize I could file a complaint until now.

car   Cooling Fan problem of BMW 3 Series

The vehicle involved was a 2003 BMW 3-series. The BMW e46 3-series (1999-2006) suffers from a design flaw in the cooling system. Plastic parts in the cooling system fail as soon as 4 years and 80,000 miles from manufacture date, often failing catastrophically and causing the engine to overheat. Continued driving of the car in this situation leads to complete engine failure and loss of power (including power steering and power brakes), potentially causing an accident if it happens at highway speeds. Typical failed parts include the coolant expansion tank, radiator end tanks, and water pump impellers or bearings. (BMW came up with an improved water pump design around 2004 that is more reliable. ) cars with automatic transmissions also suffer failures of the mechanical fan clutch and the transmission cooling thermostat. Failure of the fan clutch (found only on automatic transmission cars) can cause the fan blades to break off and damage the radiator, serpentine belt, and water pump, as well as the car's hood. At higher mileages (>150,000 miles) the plastic coolant pipes often fail, causing overheating and requiring major work to replace. On my car the coolant expansion tank and radiator both failed and were replaced. The thermostat also stuck open resulting in lower gas mileage until it was replaced. Now one of my plastic coolant pipes is leaking. BMW should be required to repair failed plastic cooling system parts on the e46 3-series with higher-quality parts designed to last at least 10 years and 100,000 miles from manufacture date. It was Wednesday, Apr. 9, 2008 when this cooling fan issue occurred.

car   Cooling Fan problem of BMW 335

The vehicle was a 2013 BMW 335i. The car goes into "limp mode" while driving reducing power immediately. I was making a turn onto a street crossing a highway and my car went into this limp mode. I was almost hit due to the sudden loss of power. Symptoms: 1) loss of power and car will not rev. Past ~3,000 rpm (no fault codes on dash) 2) radiator electric cooling fan on max (very loud) 3) engine oil temp. Approx. 205 degf or lower (while limp mode is occurring, temp. Is usually not at normal operating temp of 245 degf) the problem goes away once car is turned off and back on (it resets). Many users have reported that it seems to happen after a long comfort mode drive on the freeway followed by city driving and switching to sport mode. Repair attempts: 1) auxiliary electric cooling fan replacement (mounted to the radiator and fan shroud) - biggest culprit (the fan is tested directly and will fail the test but may or may not have a fault code stored in the ecu) 2) fan relay replacement 3) thermostat replacement 4) dme replacement with software update as far as we can tell, there is no sib yet but plenty of puma cases have been filed. A few people have had their cars bought back and replaced by BMW. This problem occurred on 01/20/14.. Read more...
