There is a funny smell inside the car and outside after I get out. It lingers in the air for several feet. It leaves a metallic taste in my mouth for several minutes. Do you know what it could be?
hi John...this could be a few things, but it sounds like either, you have a leaking water system and what you can smell and taste is the anti freeze, does is also taste a bit sweet as well?, the other thing could be the clutch ( if manual gears ) slipping, and burning, but you would notice the driving experience starting to go slower, so i would say the heater matrix inside the car ( the heater radiator ) may be leaking , feel the carpets around the bottom of the dashboard where your feet go, and the sides of where the centre console is under the dash this is normally a give away sign, and check your fluids in the expansion bottle to see if you have lost any water....hope this helps
