  • Skunk smell

    I've got a 2016 nxt20. 32 hours. I've ignored it for a while but all of my passengers this weekend commented on it. The exhaust smells...some say like a skunk, some say dog poop. Typically smell when slowing to pick up passenger or throw the rope again. Any thoughts?

    Have you already done your 20 hr service? The initial break-in oil in the engine smells bad, it goes away after an oil change or two.

        I remember mine smelling for a while, can't recall exactly when it stopped, but it did. I attributed it to break-in. Maybe someone with more engine knowledge can comment.

          I have 110 hrs on my 2015 with the 6.2 and run 93 octane gas. It still smells like skunk. I did 20hr, 55hr and 88hr oil changes with no change in oder. It seems the better the gas I use the more it smells and I just thought it was those great catalytic converters doing their jobs. They stink but thats the smell of less CO and pollutants?

            Bad batteries can give off an odour that smells like rotten eggs, could be that?

              My 2016 X46 does this as well and has service done at 50 and 75 hours. Hopefully just the engine breaking in still?

                Human babies are the same way - once they have about 2-3 months on em, the exhaust really stinks!

                    Never experienced this. Have you ruled out your passengers?

                              You sure someone didn't leave a goodie bag somewhere and you just haven't found it? Maybe that's how the wife has delt with MCCOD and you just never knew it.
