Rotten Foul Egg Smell

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have today experienced a really unpleasant Egg/!Removed! like smell from my MK1 MR2. It is not there all the time.....it just happens intermittently when i am driving.

What could this be and what should i do?

Many thanks

One or two things springs to mind, well three actually

1: You get a waft of exhaust gas (the cat convertor sometimes produces eggy smells)

2: The air conditioning system needs sanitising (you get bacteria in the ducting that produces foul smells)

3: Don't eat stir fry veg or curry the day before a trip in your car :sick:

Kingo :thumbsup:

Brilliant, thanks for your help. I wish it was down to number 3 but unfortunately not. The car does not have air con but does this still apply to the heater system? If it is the cat ....will i need to replace it ...and at whap approximate cost?

Thanks again!

If you dont have A/C then the above does not apply, that wont be the problem

When catalytic convertors were first introduced, we used to have half a dozen people a day complain about smells, its the way they work, just make sure your exhaust is not leaking

Kingo :thumbsup:

So if it isn't leaking there is nothing I can do, and nothing to worry about? It was only today that I noticed the strong smell about 3 times.

Really Appreciate your help! Thank YOU!
