Bad smell from 159 JTD
I searched forum for many similar words but I just can't find any threads that refers to my problem.
My 159 1,9 JTD is from 2010, 56000 km, 120 HP engine.
Sometimes, when I follow computer display, consumption goes wild; it reads high values like twice than normal consumption.
I can't say that it has effect on the car power, it's still going strong but I always stop the car and turn off the engine.
When I go outside I meet ugly smell of burned rubber.
First time I thought my tires were in fire but I touched them and they were cold.
I guess the smell is coming form catalizator or exhaust part.
When I start engine again, everything is normal again and days can pass by until it happens again.
My usage of the car is not optimal, I know.
I drive two very short ( 2 + 8km) runs in the morning and two short runs (8 + 2km) in the afternoon.
Once a week I take it for two a little longer (30km) runs and that's all.
