    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.
