1. Engine Clues:

Ever caught a whiff of something sweet or like burnt toast? It might be a sign that something's up under the hood. If you smell a sweet odor, it could be a coolant leak, while a burnt smell might indicate an issue with your engine or brakes.

2. Tires and Brakes:

Have you ever noticed a smell that seems to come from the tires or brakes after driving for a while? This might be a normal scent, especially if your brakes or tires are brand new. However, if the smell persists or is accompanied by odd sounds, it's a good idea to have a mechanic take a look to ensure everything is in tip-top shape.

3. Funky Filters:

Your car has filters for the air it breathes. If these filters get clogged with dust or debris, you might start noticing musty or moldy smells inside your car. Frank's Servicenter can regularly change your cabin air filter can keep the air in your car fresh and clean!

4. Fuel System Hints:

Ever smelled something like rotten eggs while near the gas station or your car? That might be a clue about your fuel system. The smell could be caused by a leak or an issue with the catalytic converter. If you detect this smell consistently, click here because that means it's time for one of our professionals to inspect it.

5. Interior Investigations:

If your car smells like a mixture of old snacks and forgotten gym clothes, it's time for some interior detective work. Check under the seats and in the nooks and crannies for any hidden surprises. A good clean-up can do wonders for eliminating those mysterious odors.

6. Air Freshener Overload:

Do you love having a fresh scent in your car? While air fresheners can make your car smell delightful, using too much can be overwhelming. If you find yourself drowning in lavender or vanilla, consider dialing back on the air freshener game!!!
