  • Ford Model: Fiesta 1.6 Titanium Hot Magenta

Posted 05 March 2009 - 03:52 PM

How long does it take for a Cat to burn In, had my 1.6 Titanium now since New Years Eve, everything about it is great but for the last week have had a "bad egg" smell from the exhaust, only done around 500 miles due to problems not car related. Any ideas ?

Have something to contribute?

"cats" often smell like rotten egges for various reasons and it can and does happen at various times so there's no "running" in period! Irrespective of what we're told this country does NOT get hot enough for a "cat" to operate properly.

Confirmed in Serbia :P New car (100 km) outside temperatures around 10 C. Smell not observed on open roads, only during very slow driving. So, it is normal?
