Details. 3.5 v6 limited. 63,000mi
new cooler and air condenser, brakes, oil change & filter.
Engine light came on recently. Not sure what is wrong. All fluids are good, except power steering is low.
It has had 0 problems as of late. All I could sense was 2-fold;
1)during cold-start, car ticks for 2 minutes. It eventually goes away. I assume that is because the oil has not been sucked up into the engine yet.
2)This is a problem more at idle/park. Car has faint smell of burning. Almost electrically. I notice it on the drivers-side more. I probably smell it more in park because the wind is not blowing it away quickly enough. But it is not a normal smell.
My gas cap has been looked at. Engine oil seems fine. I am unsure if the car is running hotter than normal but the thermometer has moved just passed halfway leaning toward hot.
research has been closely related to issues of o2 sensors, egr's, lifters, emissions.
your help is greatly appreciated.
