Why Does My Car Smell? We Buy Stinky Cars!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 19, 2020

So, has your car’s pleasant smell gone astray? Has it taken the path of that unknown, “What is that smell??!!” A lot of us have said this before and went on the not so fun adventure of tracking down the culprit. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a bag of fast food you didn’t finish and forgot to throw out; but what about when there is nothing found to throw out? Since the Coronavirus COVID 19 has so many of us finding we have time on our hands while staying home, it’s the perfect time to dig in on that stench and kick it to the curb once and for all. Guess what though? We buy cars fast that, well, stink. If you want to sell your car quick the fast, safe, and easy way, you can see how it works and get a cash offer in around 20-seconds. If we agree on the price, we will come to you and take that smelly vehicle off your hands. Regardless if you want to sell your stinky car to us or not, we hope this information will help you answer the question, “Why does my car smell?”

TIPS

  1. LOOK FOR THAT BAG OF SMELLY OLD FOOD!
  2. Give the interior a good cleaning.
    • If something spilled onto the floor, floor mats, seats, etc. clean it up.
    • Grab the vacuum and attach the tool; miss no crooks and crannies.
  3. Look at the details below to see if there is a solution for your “stink”.

My Car Smell Like Rotten Eggs – Why?

A rotten egg or sulfur smell can happen when the vehicle’s catalytic converter is not working properly. It could also be due to poor combustion and too much raw fuel is getting into the exhaust system.

Suggestion: Consider having it looked at by your mechanic a.s.a.p.

My Truck Smells Like Cooking Oil – Why?

If it smells like you’ve figured out a way to drive and have your deep fryer ready to drop wings in old oil, or maybe you forgot you have a pan with oil on the stove top:

  • Check the crankshaft for leaking oil and smoke.
  • Check if the valve cover is possibly leaking oil or if it’s smoking
  • There could be an oil level issue, so check this too.

My Car Smells Like Something is Burning – Why?

  • If you smell a burnt carpet odor, you may have a brakes issue.
  • A burning rubber smell could mean there’s a problem with the engine belts and/or hoses.
  • A burning metal odor is an indication of a burnt clutch.

My Vehicle Has a Musty Odor – Why?

Been there myself with this one.

A mildew, musty, or a faint vinegary smell occurs when vents need cleaning. It’s a simple job – just grab some cleaning solution and a tooth. If that doesn’t send the stink packing, it may be time to change the cabin filter.

My Car Smells Like Gas – Why?

A gasoline smell in your car can be a sign there’s an issue with the fuel cap, fuel injection line or vent hose.

Suggestion: Get this check immediately!

My Car Smells Like Maple Syrup – Why?

After you’re sure no one slipped pancakes under the seat, the smell can be due to coolant leaking.

  • Check the radiator and the hose for leaks.
  • Check you don’t have a bad head gasket – this allows coolant to boil in the combustion chamber and produces sweet smelling white smoke.

I Can’t Find the Stink Source – Why?

If you’ve checked off any or all of the advice above, what on earth did you leave in the trunk? Maybe a Ribeye fell out of the grocery bag? OR WORSE a small pack of chicken??? Not good. Then again, maybe when you parked your car in the driveway you left your windows down? Cats LOVE finding a comfy place to hang out, and they will most definitely stake their claim on your seats so other cats don’t mess with their new home. (Note to self… don’t ever do this again.)

CarBuyerUSA - Cat inside the Car

And, if you like to fish, don’t ever, ever, ever leave a container of worms in the trunk. It took my step-father weeeeeks to get that stink out; but I do love still teasing him about it.

If you’re lucky you’ll find the answer for your, “why does my car smell?” and your stinky smell will be easy to resolve with a little soap and water or a quick swipe.

Regardless, like mentioned above, we buy stinky cars and even those that might need a little TLC. On that note, we buy cars fast in every city, in every Continental U.S. state, which means you can sell your car quick and come to you to do it! We’ve been doing this for years; way before the Coronavirus COVID 19 kept everyone home. See how it works and get your 20-second cash offer now.

Craigslist – Coronavirus COVID 19 – Ying Lien Wang Arrested – Sold 3 Test Kits to Undercover Investigators

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 14, 2020

Unfortunately, the opportunity meant to trick you, scam you, hurt you, or put you six feet under is not lost on Craigslist criminals. The illegal activity during a pandemic crisis is flourishing and being seized in the name of a buck. We all know how it works; anything in society, whether it be an ad to sell your car quick or buy a test kit to see if you have the Coronavirus COVID 19, can be dangerous. LAPD Detectives arrested a women, Ying Lien Wang, for selling 3 test kits to undercover detectives and seize an additional 61 test kits; none of which had the U.S. FDA approval. We have warned the public here many times of the dangers of selling your car on Craigslist, and we stress it now. Sure, CL has safe ads, but why on earth would anyone risk their safety there for a vehicle? It’s not worth it. We buy cars fast, safe, and easy. See how it works – it’s a 2-step process, and get a cash offer in as little as 20-seconds. We do NOT put your life at risk throughout our entire process. We have strict safety guidelines we follow, and we definitely respect and follow your safety rules to extreme.

The image above is not the actual picture taken at the crime scene, we cannot legally use the image; but, it is the type of test kits seized by the undercover detectives. I know people are scared, even desperate; but risk your life to meet someone for buying an illegal Coronavirus COVID 19 kit? It’s the same “meeting risk” you take when you run a “sell my car quick” ad on Craigslist. Ying Lien Wang didn’t care she’d possibly be putting you at risk; and criminals who mean to harm you in someway using “Sell your car quick to me!” as a disguise to get in front of you for their evil plan, falls right into the same category. It’s about your safety first; so stop, think, and react safely.

The image above is not the actual picture taken at the crime scene, we cannot legally use the image; but, it is the type of test kits seized by the undercover detectives. I know people are scared, even desperate; but risk your life to meet someone for buying an illegal Coronavirus COVID 19 kit?

It’s about your safety first; so stop, think, and react safely.

It’s unfortunate and sad there are bad people out there wanting to hurt us, but it’s a reality. Criminals use every opportunity they can to trick you, scam you, hurt you, or the worst, kill you. Craigslist is the criminals playground and this Coronavirus COVID 19 pandemic crisis is their sandbox. Never forget how it works; anything in society, whether it be an ad to sell your car quick or buy a test kit to see if you have the Coronavirus COVID 19, can be dangerous. Law enforcement knows the danger; why else would they monitor CL for criminal ads? Thank you Ying Lien Wang, for selling 3 test kits to undercover detectives so they could seize your additional FDA non-approved 61 test kits. On behalf of every American, you rock for being stupid and careless; and for giving us the opportunity to remind everyone in every U.S. Continental U.S. state that we buy cars fast, safe, and easy. See how it works – it’s a 2-step process, and get a cash offer in as little as 20-seconds. We do NOT put your life at risk throughout our entire process. We have strict safety guidelines we follow, and we definitely respect and follow your safety rules to extreme.

CARVANA Has STOPPED Buying Cars – Coronavirus COVID 19

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 30, 2020

As a reminder, and for those who may have missed information made available here in earlier posts, below are some Coronavirus COVID 19 websites with valuable information. Also as a reminder, we buy cars fast digitally online, you can get an instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds, sell your car quick right from the comfort and safety of your home, and WE COME TO YOU! You stay home, stay safe, and stay well. If you’re thinking, “sell my car quick” then you’re in luck. Unlike CARVANA, who has STOPPED buying cars and will only sell you one, the pandemic has not stopped Car Buyer USA. We buy cars in every Continental U.S. state and still do it FAST, SAFE, and EASY. See how it works.

COVID-19 Update
Due to recent market changes, we are over-supplied with vehicles. We are buying cars on a limited basis and continue to accept vehicles for trade-in. “LEARN MORE”

The “learn more” takes you to the FAQ where I found this:

CarBuyerUSA

When I clicked on “To see your options, visit “here”, I was looped back to their “get a real offer in 2 minutes; but if I want to sell my vehicle, I’m now right back where I started and I can’t get my time involved back. BTW, our offer is in around 20-seconds

CARVANA’s website still shows “SELL or trade your car”; but they are NOT buying cars, except on a limited basis. Previously, they had stopped buying altogether. Maybe they received complaints of being misleading from too many potential customers.

CarBuyerUSA

Regardless, why use your time to inquire if you’re going to fall outside their “limited basis”? You can check out our process and see how it works, get a 20-second high instant cash offer, and then sell your car quick to us, because we buy cars fast and have the money you want and need in your bank quickly, safely, and easy. So, what are you waiting for? See what the accurate value of your vehicle is our patent pending formula quotes you now. Coronavirus COVID 19 may have slowed the world down, but with smart safety measures, we’re still going. When you think, “sell my car quick”, think Car Buyer USA.

Coronavirus COVID 19 Has STOPPED CARVANA from Buying Cars – NOT CAR BUYER USA!

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 22, 2020

As a reminder, and for those who may have missed information made available here in earlier posts, below are some Coronavirus COVID 19 websites with valuable information. Also as a reminder, we buy cars fast digitally online, you can get an instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds, sell your car quick right from the comfort and safety of your home, and WE COME TO YOU! You stay home, stay safe, and stay well. If you’re thinking “sell my car quick” to Carvana, you’re out of luck; the pandemic has stopped CARVANA from buying cars! Don’t worry though, because Car Buyer USA is still here for you waiting to buy your car FAST, SAFE, and EASY! See how it works.

CarBuyerUSA

Something odd I noticed, is why wouldn’t Carvana have the message…

“COVID-19 Update – Operational changes to keep customers and employees safe have impacted vehicle purchasing. We are still accepting trade-ins with purchase, but have temporarily paused all other purchases of vehicles from customers.”

…on their home page? It’s because they’re hoping to keep visitors (you) on their page longer and if you click on “get an offer” you’ve now helped their page ranking on Google search. This is also known as “giving it a little juice” in SEO circles.

Instead of being able to decide if you want to waste your time thinking you’re about to click to find out the value of your vehicle, you don’t see this message until you click from their homepage on the button “GET AN OFFER”. If you look a little closer at the image, you’ll see you can get a real offer in just 2 MINUTES. JUST? Seriously? Not only is that 1 minute and 40 seconds LONGER than the high instant cash offer you get from us, it’s misleading right from the get go. NOT COOL. IMHO, that’s click bait because it’s not true today (April, 22, 2020). We’re very proud of our quote takes 20-seconds, and under most of the time; and all that’s required is completing our short form. That’s not click bait, it’s pure honesty.

How to Properly Wash Your Hands


According to Wikipedia “Internet homicide refers to a killing in which victim and perpetrator met online, in some cases having known each other previously only through the Internet. Also Internet killer is an appellation found in media reports for a person who broadcasts the crime of murder online or who murders a victim met through the Internet. The first known murder of a victim met online was in 1996. Depending on the venue used, other terms used in the media are Internet chat room killer, Craigslist killer, Facebook serial killer. Internet homicide can also be part of an Internet suicide pact or consensual homicide. Some commentators believe that reports on these homicides have overemphasized their connection to the Internet.”

Shelter in Place–COVID 19–Quarantine–Self Distancing

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 26, 2020

Coronavirus (COVID 19) is growing at a ramped pace all across America. As of March 25, 2020, the U.S. is 3 rd in the most confirmed cases in the world. New York State, hit the hardest, is the epicenter of this disease at 30,811 confirmed cases, with the state New Jersey confirming 4,402 cases, and states in the 2Ks, some in 1Ks, and others lower. States and many state counties have declared a state of emergency and have issued shelter in place orders. No gatherings of 10 or more people are allowed regardless of location; in addition, all recreation buildings and parks have been closed. All essential and non-essential businesses are to open not one second before 6:00 a.m. and must close not one second past 9:00 p.m. or they risk losing their business. It’s possible all non-essential businesses will be ordered to close their doors in the near future. Car Buyer USA tells you, we buy cars fast, safe, and easy in every Continental U.S. state, and we will come to you to do it. We also encourage you to see how it works, to complete our short form, and get a 20-second high instant cash offer. If you need money and have a vehicle as a resource; sell your car quick to us and get money wired to your bank fast. Our process is digital and can be done online, and right from the safety of your home. We want you to stay safe. You stay home, set the social distancing safe zone, and tell us what your safety rules are.

We cannot stress this stronger; used car price values are taking a hit. Prices are dropping. If you need to sell your car, sell it quick. Do not put it off. Every day you wait, you lose money. Our uncertainty of the near and distant future, along with dealerships, and all essential and non-essential businesses across America, is overwhelming for all of us.

Practice safe distancing. Stay home. Stay safe. We buy cars and we are happy to come to you. We’ve been doing this for years, the Coronavirus (COVID 19) didn’t start this for us, but it makes us thankful it’s part of our business model. See how it works, get your high instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds. We are here for you, we will buy your car, and wire cash to your bank before you sign over the title. Then we’ll tow your vehicle away and handle the headache of ordering a new title. If you have a lien on your vehicle, we’ll be the ones to wait up to 8 weeks for a clean title; not you. That saves you a minimum of 8 weeks to sell your car yourself. Again, stay safe and practice social distancing; even if that means you need to self-quarantine by choice or by a shelter in place order.
