    E280 CDI Hissing and nasty smell

    With no prior warning, at the end of a 400 mile journey my E280 CDI was hissing loudly from the rear and smelling of cabbages. The hissing (and smell) persisted for some minutes after switching the engine off. Is this the catalytic converter? Or something else? Thanks for any thoughts.

    My car is giving a harsh and firm ride. Took it to Waynes Gates and he can't find any problems but did advise on changing all four tyres and they're finished. Tyres are on order so will have to wait a few days and see if that resolves the problem. One thing I have noticed, when I park the car...

    Hissing Query

    When I switch the car off & get out, I can hear a hissing noise coming from behind the passenger side front wheel. It sounds like air leaking from a tyre but it isn't the tyre & it stops after a while. Nothing seems to be wrong. Is this normal or is something going wrong??
