"SKUNKY" SMELL COMING FROM VEHICLE

I know this is weird- but i have noticed a skunk like smell coming from the front passenger side of my van. it seems to get stronger when i first start the vehicle and then better after it has ran a while. Although, i do smell it faintly when i come around that side of the vehicle. i think the smell is coming at least partly from the vents or maybe the area right above the tire. hope this isnt too confusing. the odor is driving me crazy! any help is appreciated! i dont recall running over any skunks. is there any type of engine problem that could give off an odor like this? thanks again- cheryl

Your catalytic converter could be your problem. Or you have a family of dead rodents in your engine.

Burning smell


If it smells like burning a burning plastic/ceramic then your brakes are locking up and burning. Next time it does it, see if the smell is coming from the rear tire. if so, its time for a brake job

Smell comes thru air vent.


You might have both. The fresh air intake is under the windshield wipers, that vent takes in the fresh air from outside. The filter is usually in the rear seat section on vans and suvs, somewhere, sometimes up front under the dash. You can switch your ac or fresh air control to recirculate and it will cut off the outside air. We always do it on dusty roads and dead skunks. Hope this helps.

Smell in my caravn


it may be a coolant leak in your heater core, but coolant has more of a sweet smell than a fishy one, and you would notice a dampness on the passenger side floormat. it is probably just a mold in the air filter of the blower motor and needs replaced

Air conditioner is leaking water inside the van


But boy it will smell nasty if u don't fix it! Most vehicles it's on the passenger side, (front) at the firewall about where your foot if extended would touch. U can also access it from below the car, use a small wire to unclog. If u still have trouble locating it, let me know.

Car has a skunk like smell and AC question


Listen people...it isn't a skunk! My elantra smells like a skunk too and I am sure I didn't hit one. I think that it might be my battery; since battery acid and skunk smell are chemically the same. This is what I am checking next.
