I have a 99 Honda Civic, automatic transmission.
About two weeks ago, for about 10 seconds it started to smell like burnt plastic and a little smoke started going from under the hood. It stopped and happens once or twice a day since then. When this happens, the temperature is OK according the gauge.
I also noticed 2 things:
- a few drops of oil I think that the car didn’t have before.
- the heater is working good, but it seems that some piece of the fan is broken (or melted) because when I push the button to change the air direction of the fan, it changes but return always to the “head” direction.
