Why would a 1998 Ford Contour with 2.5L V6 engine that has no visible signs of a fuel leak smell like gas all the time?

Check the charcoal canister in the fromt. It is a black can looking thing that stores fumes when the engine isn't running and is supposed to burn them when it starts/

Aweful smell when I opened a new bag of brussel sprouts. They looked very fresh, but the smell was quite aweful. Concerned to eat. How can you tell by smell if no visible signs?

Evaporated milk will smell sour (awful) if it is bad.It may also have mould growth or other visible signs that something is not right.

Some people say that the smell of hot antifreeze smells like mold. It could be possible you are smelling the antifreeze from the engine.

Foul egg smell and the engine becomes hesitant. Also loss of power, poor fuel mileage, and check engine light may come on.

Engine oil mixing with coolant and/or coolant mixing with engine oil.Losing coolant but don't see any leaks. White smoke (steam) coming out the exhaust that has a sweet smell to it.

If there is no leak visible so you can see antifreeze under the parked car, you probably have a head gasket going bad. You may have some signs of steam in your exhaust, or at least a sweet smell coming from the exhaust. You should have a compression test done on your engine. That is exactly what the overflow reservoir is for. When the engine is hot, excess coolant goes into the overflow tank, as the engine cools,it draws coolant back into the radiator.

2 most obvious signs of exhaust leak are noise and smell of exhaust fumes

If the check engine light comes on go to auto zone and have the codes read free. Check the injectors and fuel lines for leaks.

There are generally two signs that the alternator is going bad. First is the noise. A new noise will begin to be heard. Something like a whining when the car is accelerating. Second is the smell. You may smell burning from the engine department.

They smell with their tongue and some hunt by heat signs.

Oil that has somehow gotten onto the manifold of the engine will produce this smell. Any oil leak in and around the engine will produce this.

Your engine will speed up & the car won't go any faster (transmission slipping) Or you can pull the dipstick & smell the transmission fluid if it smells burnt you may have a problem with the transmission.

There are several signs that an alternator is going bad. A few signs are dim lights, smell, warning lights, and a dead battery.

1. Gas production. 2. Colour change. 3. Presence of new smell. 4. Heat loss/gain (i.e. apparatus gets hot or cold) 5. New substance - e.g. precipitate visible.

you should know whether your chicken is spoiled before cooking. Smell it and if you smell even the slightest bad odor, throw it out.
