Re: Smelly cats

To:   randrews
If there is a solution, I haven't found it yet. One glimmer of hope just
appeared, though. Last week, or so, I brought my car into AutoBon in
Cambridge, MA, they found that my right bank output seems to fluctuate a
bit, while the left bank is rock solid. Although, the fluctuations still
appear to be within spec, there's a small chance that the high side of the
fluctuation may be contributing to a rich condition causing that stink. I
have to set up an appointment to have some diagnostic equipment hooked up
for a more thorough investigation.

BTW, my wife's face is priceless when she's caught in mid-stink. Of course,
it's all Audi's fault....
