Alright, I thought about this yesterday so today it's YOUR turn to think about it! :lol:

here's my Q.

Why does it stinks after you've gone uphill (assuming it's a big hill) and what is the cause of that smell.

So it's in two part.

Why it stinks?
What makes the odor?


I really don't get why, since (I thought) an engine works harder when revving high than when steady at 3k RPM to go uphill... or was I wrong?

nope.

It's just normal stinkness for going up a big hill, not the egg thing (I know that duh) it's done that in every car I've been in.

A big long hill where you try to go fast that is...

it's not a problem, it's normal..

well rev's are just how fast engine (and car) are going. uphill or not it will be the same unless you down-shift.
however how hard you press the gas pedal will change how much the engine strains, which might explain more exhaust and more smell.

i think the new digital-pedaled cars might be a bit different due to computer override :|

Could be the clutch, if you hold a car on the clutch on a hill for a long time it will stink. And it'll be wrecked if you keep doing it, it's just the friction burning it. Shouldn't happen in normal driving though.....
