Ewwwhew! You’re rolling down the road minding your own business when you get a whiff of something foul. You do the quick sniff check. No it’s not you.
“Did the kids leave their lunch in the car?” You quick check the back seat and nothing seems to be left behind. Yet something smells funky and you need to know what.
After careful investigation, you determine it is indeed coming from your car. You pop the hood and find the culprit.
There are a number of reasons why your car might be letting off a smell. Discovering what is causing the foul odor is the trick.
One reason (that you may not be familiar with — it was news to us) is a bad car battery. Yep, smelling a rotten egg smell in your car could be the result of a bad battery. So we recommend you start there. Go down to your local auto parts store, mechanic or dealership and have them check out your battery. It could just be the very thing that has your nose in an uproar.
If it is indeed the battery, it’ll be a pretty quick and easy fix.
If not, make sure you to get to the bottom of the smell as it is definitely signaling a problem.
