If a car begins to smell like rotten eggs and then starts acting like it has bad gas, it may have been filled with the wrong type of fuel. This smell is common when diesel fuel is burned.

Why does your battery smell like rotten eggs?

If an automobile battery is in normal condition, there should be very little smell from it. The one smell that you should be aware of is the smell of rotten eggs, which indicates severe and dangerous problems with the battery. Once a battery begins to smell like rotten eggs, it cannot be saved, but must be immediately replaced. Please be aware that rotten-egg batteries can explode. Rotten-egg batteries are frequently much hotter than normal batteries would be, and the hot rotten-egg batteries are the most dangerous. The most common cause of rotten-egg batteries is an alternator which constantly overcharges, so the alternator should usually be replaced along with the battery.

It can, but it depends what is in the rotten food - and what you mean by rotten. If you are thinking that microbially adulterated food is rotten or spoiled, realize that the people who consume food involved in a foodborne outbreak did not smell or see anything wrong with the food they ate. If the food is truly rotten, a person would almost have to be starving to get it past their nose. I have heard people describe yogurt as the controlled spoilage of milk.

What is sea- smell?

Well, it depends on what you mean by sea-smell. If you mean the smell of the sea, then that would be hard to describe. It's a tangy sort of smell, similar to salty water. Just imagine water with salt, rotten seaweed, and the occasional dead animal stink in it.
