"Stop and smell the Roses"

"Stop and smell the Roses"
Recently a few customers have come in with complaints of a "weird smell or foul odor when their vehicle is warmed up." Sometimes a foul smell can be a big deal and sometimes not. After inspecting the vehicles we found 2 different issues. In picture above a gentleman ran over a plastic grocery bag and in time it will burn completely off. In most cases this is not a big deal. The picture below shows a bad axle in which the seal and boot has blown out and it (literally) puked the grease onto the hot exhaust. After an axle replacement this vehicle smelled much better. We never know what we are going to run into, everyday is different and sometimes we just gotta stop and smell the roses.
