2002 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 164000 miles
Good day, I was driving on the hwy yesterday and noticed a rank ugly smell, a bit like a rotting corpse, I thought it could of come from the garbage truck I was follwing, but the smell didnt stop after a few Km of having him behind me. Then I came home from work and tried to go to work the next day (today), but the bty is stone dead, could it be the alternator that created the smell as it was dying or could it be the battery that caused the smell. Ive look at some forums, and most people say that smells dont come from an alternator, only the strap, but thats still there and in good condition. Do you have any ideas?
have the same problem?
