At first,big HELOO to ALL forum-dudes on this forum.Second,forgive me on my bad English speak,bc,im write from Germany..
This problem with smell,i have to..but..ONLY when i start car very sharp..Smell is not gas,not oil at all,not fluid in aircond,bc.AC not in this moment working..
My mashine is gas,163PS,manual...and official energy fluid is Eurosuper E10,what means, 10% bio ethanol..smell in cabin is so "alcoholic"..just on short period..
Maybe is problem just brand new engine and all instalation,which MAYBE not all firmly fixed..
MAYBE gas+ethanol,wenn comming in turbine(direct injection) make very big pressure,and in next CIRCLE,wenn TURBINE is open for AIR,small part ethanol going out,then with air for normal circulation and vent sistem going in cabine...
This was i writen,is JUST MY GUESS,and not take like expert advice...just one possibility..
check all conection...air,gas,turbocompressor seal,rubber hose..and firmly pinched,if is not enough
Engine in Eclipse Cross is last word of tech,and is it possibly thad had "childs deseas" in construct...
I want to all,manny mileage and pleasure in driving Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross..
