Cars are our truthful servants. Give them appropriate service and repairs, and be sure to drive the car on road with nominal problems. Noise is a common symptom, but paying attention to unexceptional smells can assist you to detect obvious issues quickly.
Here we take a look at 5 smells that you should never ignore.
Burning Rubber Smell
The engine relies on a series of rubber belts and hoses for everyday driving. The smell of burning rubber in your car can pinpoint that a rubber hose or belt under the hood has become loose. When this happens, these parts can rotate and come in contact with the hot parts of the engine – this is why they smell like rubber.
Petrol or Diesel Smell
When you smell the gasoline while driving, it means there is a leak in one of the pipes that carry it. Gas can be emitted in a fuel injector or a fuel tank.
Fuel leaks in modern cars are minimal, and really only happen when the seals around the fuel lines are removed over time.
Burning Carpet Smell
This smell reveals that there may be a problem with your brake pads or that your routers may overheat. Note that brakes are an important part of your vehicle, and any problems with them should be fixed immediately to avoid any hazards.
Rotten Eggs Smell
This smell indicates that there is a problem with your catalytic converter. The purpose of the converter is to convert the gases emitted from your engine into a form that can be released, and its smell indicates that it is not working properly.
In some cases, this may be an indication that there is a problem with the engine that is overwhelming the catalytic converter.
This sweet, syrupy smell is caused by the leakage of engine coolant. This is not good for your engine because the coolant relies on the enclosed system to keep it cool. Leakage in the coolant can cause the engine to overheat. Open the radiator with caution, and do not open it when it is too hot to avoid getting burnt.
