I had this exact problem and my battery under the hood was faulty and oozing battery acid. Replaced the battery and it went away.

When I drive my Bmw 323I E90 is shaking after driving for 500m, and then it dont want to drive fast because of the shaking. It also gives a rotten egg like smell. Whats the problem


Rotten egg smell from exhaust is typically caused by sulfur in the catalytic converter burning off. That can be caused by driving the car harder than normal, or harder than previously, making the converter heat up. If you have exhaust leaking into the car, you will smell it.

We will need a better characterization of the "shaking" to help you solve it. Does the shaking stop when you stop, or does it continue? If it stops, it's either in the drivetrain or wheels. If it doesn't stop, engine or trans.

After car starts to warm up engine misses and shows code p300 and we get egg smell from exhaust. I replaced spark plugs and wires. coils and ignition module tested good.

The code is right. The eggy smell is sulphur from un-burnt fuel.

When you changed out all the ignition stuff, leads etc. I wonder if you got the leads back in the right order to the correct plugs?

I had a similar problem many, many years ago.

Smells like rotten eggs but car runs fine


does your car have AC.... ? ac problems can make a eggy smell also a damaged catalytic converter do the same. eggy smell can be the gas from the ac leaking out. you would need to have this check as it can do harm to your lungs..

When I start my car, there is a very strong smell of exhaust fumes or maybe even gasoline in the car. It seems to lessen over time or maybe my sense of smell just adjusts to the smell. Any help with what...


the vehicle may need a service to ensure all fuel is being burned on ignition.
the exhaust may be broken under the car and exhaust fumes are being released.

I hope this was useful.

Cabin smells when heat or defroster is on


What your smelling is most likely coolant (antifreeze). You may have a heater core leak. If you dont smell the same smell after running the A/C or just vented cool air from outside for a few minutes then that is your problem.

Car died rotton egg smell


Not sure if engine coolant smells like rotten egs when it burns inside the cylinders , but it sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. Coolant and/or oil could be getting inside combustion chamber. Another possibility is that the catyletic converter might have broken up and colapsed onto the screen where it goes into the exhaust. Might give the rotten egg smell and block the exhaust enough to cause backpressure sufficient to cause the engine to run poorly too.
Try putting your palm over the exhaust pipe , if the exhaust is coming out in pulses (pop ,pop,pop) thats normal , if it is just slowly flowing out with no noticable pulses , I would check into the cat converter problem.

White smoke and smell of eggs


White smoke in the exhaust, more so on a cold start. That's steam. Water is getting into the combustion chamber. Most likely coolant.
Put your hand in the white smoke to capture the odor. (don't burn yourself)
What does your hand smell like? Coolant (anti-freeze & water) smells sweet.
Likeliest cause = head gasket. Possible = cracked head - depending on how hot it got. Less likely = cracked intake manifold.
Maybe a blown head gasket
