If you have a 1.8T, the breather for the crankcase is below the intake manifold. The poor design of the engine causes oil to be sucked up through the breather and sit in the breather assembly then causing it to rot and fail. When you aredriving slow, the vapors from your crankcase waft in through the cabin air intake. you need to purchase a breather T fitting, it is expensive -about 45 dollars from the dealer, and install it. Look below the intake on the drivers side of the engine for the faulty part.

In what ways is the sense of smell useful?

You can smell burning and sourness. If you smell something and it smells horrid then you would put it down. If you didn't smell it and u just looked at it and it look good, you wouldn't be able to determine if this really is something i should be consuming. So you should be thankful for smell instead of having to taste something that could virtually be poisoness to your body

Is nose least important sense organ?

No, to me the sense of smell is important. If the house was burning down and you in another room if you had no sense of smell you would have to go on your other senses to figure it out. If you didn't have a sense of smell how would you know if you stink, that would suck if your on a date and your date leaves you because you smell "rank." Your sense of taste seems less important to me, if you think about it living without taste isn't bad as you not being able to see, touch, hear, and smell. All in all you need your sense of smell to coexist in everyday life.

What does Jupiter smell like?

Sorry to down your feelings right now. But no one has ever even touched Jupiter let alone smell it. If you did touch Jupiter you would be crushed instantly because of its pressure. But if you could smell Jupiter I would say it doesn't smell of anything because no ones been there and its made of helium and hydrogen which doesn't have a smell to it. But Jupiter is made out of gases such as methane, vapor, water, and ethane so there might be some sort of a smell to it, Jupiter probably smells like natural gas.
