Not knowing what kind of bike you have, I can't tell which parts to change, but it is definately OVER-charging. the rotten-eggs smell is battery acid boiling(so to speak) out of battery. Have voltage regulator checked first tho

Vehicle smells like natural gas after stopping when vehicle is hot


I think you are getting a rotten egg smell,not natural gas. I would check for exhaust leaks from the catalytic converter for starters. Have you checked the grill at the base of the windshield and on top of the firewall? folks have been known to drop eggs down there as a prank.

What's your problemm?chevy colbalt smells like rotten eggs


The rotten egg smell usually occurs from time to time. It comes from the battery being charged by the alternator. However, if it smells continuously there is a problem. It's likely that your alternator is overcharging the battery. This needs to be looked at soon. The alternator will need to be replaced or repaired. Hope this helps.

The rotten egg smell if it is coming from the exhaust is a very good sign that you catalytic converter has failed or is failing. but a bad or battery that is being overcharged can also make a rotten egg like smell.

My 2005 chevy malibus check engine light came on it's running really rough. It also smell like rotten eggs. I have tried the gas cap thing and checked all thefluid levels and still nothing


its your alternator voltage regular failed and your alternator is isnt being limited to 12 vots and its overpowering your electric system. the smell of rotten eggs is your battery over heating and the acid inside is boiling giving off the sulfur based smell. this is unhealthy for you to breath and is a sure sign that your car needs to be repaired. you need to replace your alterantor and battery immeditly or it coud damage your vehicals computer. The new altenator will have a new regulator in it and you will be good.

Rotten egg smell / sink


Two different problems. Rotten egg smell is sulfer from the water supply, especially strong in heated water. Drain may need to be cabled out.
