The smell that you are getting is a result of your fuel jets are blocked with a foreign body, check your fuel jets. Depending on the age of your vehicle they will need to be replaced.

correct answer

the smell is caused by unburnt fuel leaving the engine as you are cranking it nuthing to do with blocked fuel jets. if fuel jets are blocked, you wont get fuel at all. u might check condition of battery to ensure engine is cranking at correct speed . if battery is low, engine takes more cranking to start hence the fuel being lost .

i think u need to change the O2 sensor in this case.check the air filter if it is bad.

The car exhaust smells like the rotten eggs as a result of the hydrogen sulphide. This usually happens, when the engine is not serviced for a long time.

probably an exhaust leak, at or near the exhaust manifold

Most likely your exhaust is rattling and the smell is because your catalytic converter is bad

I was just in Mexico and some of the common smells that I smelled were cooking foods, flowers, car exhaust and garbage. These all depended on where one was in Mexico, when I was in Cuernavaca, it was mostly food and car exhaust in the Zocolo, the city center, but flowers where I was staying. In Mexico City, there was more of a garbage smell while riding or driving on the highways and car exhaust and food smells most other places.

Exhaust has several definitions. It depends on exactly which definition you are referring to.1- Exhaust every possibility of a negotiated settlement.2- Even diesel exhaust smells better than a dirty human.3- All this hard work really does exhaust me.

When you start the car, the hot exhaust condenses on the interior of the cold exhaust system. This is normal for a few minutes until the exhaust system warms up. If the water smells and taste sweet, and you are continually adding coolant, you may have a blown head gasket. If this is the case, do not continue to drive the vehicle as serious damage will be done to the engine.

The only thing that has ever worked for me is 'Blistex'. It smells strongly, but it works.

Are you sure it's a leaking exhaust? If you think it is, then get a new exhaust fitted! But are you sure it isn't diesel smoke coming off the exhaust due to leaking seals on one or more injectors? That's the favorite!

we hate it cause usually if its loud then it hurts the earth and smells alot. plus women like to talk to guys and if the exhaust is loud we cant be heard.

Condensation in the exhaust train is perfectly normal. It should dry out after several minutes. If it smells like antifreeze, suspect a bad head gasket.

Flush the toilet, turn on exhaust fan, and spray some deodorant.

You probably have a manifold exhaust leak and the exhaust gasses are being picked up by the heater intake. I guess you could just be picking up exhaust gas from another vehicle though.

generally the smell is due to the sweating. But sweating does'nt directly smells, the bacteria developed in there causes it to smell like garbage

If its smells like gas, you are putting too much gas in the engine and some is unburnt and going out the exhaust. Exhaust underneath means there is a leak in the system somewhere. If there is no louder noise or hissing, I would expect the catalytic converter is leaking. Have it checked and get a tune up. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info answer bad exhaust pipe
