Bad smell!

Alright guys after looking over what I know and could possibly think of it's time for a post to see if anyone else has had this problem. I have this weird smell every now and then and it's the same distinct smell, mostly from the leather shifter cover and rubber boot. I have checked the transmisson for leaks since having changed the fluid about 2 months ago. I have checked the carpet for smell and being wet and can't find anything. Am I missing something? Are these cars prone to leaking somewhere? Or maybe over looked a fluid leak somewhere? The smell is on and off and usually I notice it here and there after driving for a few minutes. Any suggestions? Please help lol.

Shampoo the carpets and head liner, then take out your cabin filter and turn on your air and make sure it's sucking the out side air in and spray Lysol outside thru the cowl

Then clean your trunk really good and the spare tire well

If that helps but not all the way, buy 3 baking soda fridge packs and stick one under each seat and one in the trunk
Had a similar issue in my wife cars. Smelled like dead things. Took it to the dealer and they found two mice in the ducting that had died, plus they had made a nest on top of the cabin filter. It was awful dude....
Haha they must of escaped the engine
They car will be a pile of rust in a few more years don't worry
Grrrrrrrrrrr :mad:
The 240, America's rusty-est car
I'll have you know my 240 has ZERO exterior rust. Just a little rot in the firewall. :p
Better put that in a museum, and tear out the rotted firewall to make room for the LS3
