Smelly!!

Ive noticed that when i put my foot down a bit i get a nasty smell in my car..at first i thought...oh no clutch!! But there doesnt seem to be any slip or drag...again any ideas? ive looked around for obvious things stuck to the manifold or exhaust.

Re: Smelly!!

might be leaves in the air vents.. or a dead animal.

Most smells come through the ventsm I had petrol smell through mine but that is because I was leaking petrol.

close all the vents to try and pin point the problem.

Re: Smelly!!

if its a pungent smell,then it is coolant.only need a tiny leak around the back of the engine piping/matrix for it to drift in the cabin.
