don't laughlmao

Thanks to the excellent build quality of Vauxhalls I'm familiar with the smell of oil burning, leaking, dripping etc
Also the smell of coolant, PAS fluid, tx box fluid in the bay, etc etc...

But what on earth would produce a smell like onions? First time I put it down to something from outside (unlikely, but hey)
It's happened again, and somehow I just know it's from the car :rolleyes:

Sounds like very slightly leaking heater matrix. Try flushing the cooling system and replacing with fresh water/coolant additive (antifreeze/corrosion inhibitor).

Or; Stop working as a driver for Sanjay's kebab shop...

Doesn't happen often, but it's very strange...
