Recommended Posts

Well I was on the highway, and I was driving my car pretty hard with the manual mode, then all of a sudden I started smelling this rotten egg smell, and it worried me. Is it burning oil, or something melting in my car I'm soo mad. Any helpful suggestions wat that smell is? thx guys.

There is a product called Seafoam. IF you run it through the engine using the PCV system or sucking it through the vacume line that ataches to the master cylinder for the brakes it will elimnate the small. If it doesnt work the first time, do it a second and that will for sure get rid of the smell.

I did it on my girlfriends 2004 Ford Explore when it was having the problem and after the first can the smell was 90% gone and after the second can it was gone and is still done after 20,000 miles.

Just my suggestion.

Someone else may already have pointed this out:

TSIB EG001-03 (All Models): Sulfur Odor From Exhaust

Some owners of Lexus vehicles may experience a sulfur–like or “rotten egg” odor from the exhaust system. Sulfur is a natural component of crude oil from which gasoline is refined and the amount of sulfur can be decreased through the refining process. The amount of sulfur in fuel sold in California is regulated, however gasoline sold in other states can have substantially higher sulfur content. Sulfur content also varies considerably between gasoline brands and locations.

Take your car in and demand that Lexus fix your air conditioner! You are smelling Mold!
