asked by on

I think I have a few problems with my car From it smelling like something is burning in the front too my gas gauge meter not being accurate I feel like I'm putting more gas than I should

My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to have the burning smell checked to see if you have oil leaks. The gas gauge not working is most likely the fuel sender in the fuel tank is not working correctly and will need to be verified it is the cause.
