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.

I was just in Mexico and some of the common smells that I smelled were cooking foods, flowers, car exhaust and garbage.

What causes water condensation to come out of tailpipe?

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.
