My 2016 Chevy Trax smells hot. No lights have come on but it smells hot.
What does the coolant temperature gauge read?
The Trax does not have a temp gauge. Just smells hot.
Put a big fan on it while parked.
But seriously…take it to a mechanic who can measure the coolant temperature for sure. There may also be a coolant leak that you’re smelling.
We checked the coolant level. It was 2" low. Add and today after about 3 miles 1 " low. Going to add again and going to dealer Thursday! Thanks
Another hot spot with a smell is an overheating brake. Walk around after a drive and feel the heat off each wheel near its brake (but don’t touch the rotor!). The 2 fronts should feel the same and the 2 rears the same, cooler than the fronts.
