    Strange smells

    I have a vase of daffodils on my desk this morning and they smell strongly of ginger, I wasn't expecting that. I've recently discovered that the yellow flowers on gorse bushes smell of coconut when in direct sunlight. Any others?

    Dear all, I have a 2005 E320cdi Estate with 125,000 miles, full service history etc. I've noticed lately that the engine sounds a bit louder than normal and that it's starting to smell of diesel inside and outside especially when idling. I'm wondering if this is common or if something's...

    2001 320 CDI s210 smells strange

    Hello, when I start my s210 it smells strange, not a toasted smell. It could be the catalyst? V belt is ok. Filters are all new except the active carbon, but the smell is out of the car. Many thanks

    Air Conditioning Smells A Bit Strange

    When I first turn the Air Con on, it emits a rather unpleasant smell at first. The best way to describe the smell is you know when you were younger and you'd go to see a really old relative, well it's that smell...;) Will it be the Pollen filters?

    My drill smells like my old Scalextric

    I have a reliable Dewalt DW907 (type 1) which whilst still working perfectly has started to smell. What is causing this and can I replace it or will I have to buy a new one?

    Smells like peardrops

    No, not a "Weird Al" song!! '06 A180CDi. Last couple of weeks, a smell not dissimilar to peardops has been rather prevalent in the cabin. Not had chance to look under the bonnet for any obvious signs. Car runs fine, everything works, no warning lights. Any ideas? :dk: TIA, David.

    Microwave smells

    Rather than join a microwave forum I thought I'd ask here. My sister rather intelligently microwaved a slice of chocolate fudge cake for over 4 minutes and made a terrible smell and mess inside my mum's brand new microwave!:eek: We have tried using vinegar and lemon but to no success...the...

    Oil smells of petrol?

    Hi, I'm a little concerned by my e240's oil which smells strongly of petrol. I'm not sure what would cause this? The coolant is clear with no gunge and there seems to be no imulsion on the oil cap. I'm not sure if this is signifiacant but after a short journey the fuel filler cap hisses when...

    A/C Musty Smells, Air filters & Drain Tubes

    I have the classic musty smell for about 5-10 mins after the A/C is switched off. I have replaced the pollen filter (in the passenger well) and have tried two different aerosoles ( a Comma product and one from Euro car parts), both have helped but not eliminated the problem. I have two questions...
