Unhappy bad egg smell in my car

when I start the engine and drive off the smell begins and we have to drive with the windows down - I am really worried because I have my little boy in the car with me and the smell is disgusting and getting worse!! The car is already flooded at the front and I can't get rid of the water - the water doesn't smell so I'm not sure where it is coming from - i'm thinking the cat or battery!!!

Re: bad egg smell in my car

Get the water problem sorted first as damp can cause serious bacterial problems in the carpets and heating system. Better it can smell of rotten eggs.

The most common cause of water ingress is due to blocked windscreen scuttle drians so I suggest you check that aspect first.
