    Default Sulphur Smell when starting sri 1.9 cdti veccy

    My wifes sri has had quite a few problems, all now sorted i noticed the other day a faint sulpur crap smell inside when driving, initially i thought it was junior in the back seat filling his nappy again until today, i got into the car, started the engine and immediately there was a strong sulphur smell inside. Would this possibly be the Cat starting to pack in?
    Any help or ideas would be appreciated

    Mine does it sometimes, usually if i have got the door open or a window when the wind is in the wrong direction. Diesels don't need CAT's for emmisions, just for soot so don't worry too much, diesel burning does smell of sulphur.

    Does it happen every time, can it be smelt when driving?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    if its smelling in the car whilst driving it could be the injector seals!! i drive merc sprinter for a living and it is a common fault that when injector seals are knackered fumes come in the cab.
