    burning smell w202

    I've noticed a burning smell coming from my car after having been driven. I think it may be from the catalytic converter which appears to have some residue/gunk on it.

    R129 burning rich

    My R129 300Sl 3.0 litre seems to be burning quite rich. When I park the car I can smell a 'rich' petrol smell. How do you adjust the carburetor/air intake? And would this be the likely problem? Car is going in for a service next week so I may just ask them to do it instead. thanks
