Getting the Odor Out of Your Car

In the last several years we have  encountered many cars that have developed stubborn, offensive odors.

Maybe the owner spilled something, maybe there was a leak, or maybe something even crawled into their engine and died. Whatever the source may be, it can often leave behind a stench that simply will not go away with conventional cleaning. Fortunately, there are measures you can take against such smells.

First of all, it’s good to be aware of what might cause your car to stink. Dry up wet patches before they encourage the growth of mildew. Clean up food before it attracts mold. Avoid eating, smoking, and transporting pets around in your car whenever you can.

Should you find yourself stuck with an objectionable odor, identify its source and remove it. Dry out mildew, or steam clean spots that might be infected with bacteria. If the smell has worked its way into the fibers severely enough, you may need to replace carpeting or under padding. There are also some commercial products available which claim to be able to eliminate odors; consider these as appropriate.

Once you tried the above and you still are unable to remove the odor give us a call 888-406-0795  or contact us via email

What’s That Smell?

The smell of sulphur or rotten eggs often indicates an issue with your exhaust system, specifically the catalytic converter. The catalytic converter helps eliminate some of the harmful gases produced by the engine, so a malfunction could be hazardous to your health and the environment. Waiting too long to have this fixed can be extremely costly.

If your car smells sweet…

It could indicate that your coolant is leaking! Coolant is critical to keeping your engine at the right temperature while it’s running, and if it overheats, you’ll have a much bigger and more expensive issue on your hands.

If you smell gasoline away from the pump…

Gasoline can signal one of several issues. If you’ve just tried and failed to start your car, it could mean you’ve flooded the engine and you’ll need to wait a few minutes before trying again. If you smell gasoline at another time, you may have a leak in your fuel injector line, or in your gas tank. Any fuel leak is a fire hazard – have it checked out as soon as possible.

If you smell something burning…

Usually, a burning smell is a sign that there is an electrical short, or that oil is leaking and burning. Oil leaks can usually be seen on the ground below your vehicle, especially if it’s left sitting for a short period of time. Either issue should be repaired quickly to avoid further damage or excessive heat.

If you smell burning rubber…

Usually, burning rubber is an issue with brakes. You may not think a collision could cause brake issues, but anything from unbalanced tires to a misalignment can lead to uneven wear on the brakes and tires, leading to a burning smell. To be safely driven, every vehicle needs functioning brakes, so don’t waste time in having them repaired.
