Hey guys, I have a strong smell of something overheating. I can localize it to around the turbo somewhere, if not the turbo itself. Not sure if this relates to or caused the issue:
The only thing that has changed is that I was running without an O2 Sensor at the intake for a while. The sensor was not functioning properly so I unplugged it so the car would run okay instead of "bogged down". I was told by the mechanic that since I didn't have a catalytic converter it shouldn't matter in the short run. I was running the car without a sensor for close to 4 months (shame on me). About 3 or 4 weeks before I got a new sensor I started smelling a raw fuel within the car, I couldn't smell it outside. Once I installed a new sensor I haven't smelled fuel since, but now I have something overheating like I said. From the color of the turbo, I really think it's overheating. Turbo is still functioning, car actually drives really nice with the new sensor. Has anyone run into this problem?
