    Ewww My car smells like fart!!

    OK so ive noticed my car smelling rather unusual over the last week.
    When stoped or idling a rather pungent sulfur smell seeps through the vehicle.
    Not cool when everyone just thinks you let it rip at every set of lights hahah
    What is this? How can it be stopped?

    Cheers

    Driving a da6 teggy if you need to know?

    Cat Converter??
    If your car still has one it could be past it's used by date, either get it replaced with a coby muffler or a straight peice of pipe.

    Sounds very much like the cat converter. replace the converter or get a bit of straight pipe welded in where the converter goes if you don't care about the environment
    Serious allegations.

    I thought the cat converter caused funny smells when it was working correctly.

    Checked battery?

    Probably less likely if its not in the cabin. But if you check the other things try that.

    My battery did that when it started bubbling (Only on really long trips) and it smelt like fart all of a sudden
    HATER

    Lol. Anyone you might have pissed off lately, done the grated poo trick (shit in bag, freeze it, the grate it somewhere) in your air vents at all???

    just for a note - cheap vodka when it dries out and heats up again (like in a heater and your air vents) smells like catpiss. Seen this done before. Not nice.
