I own a 2005 Acura TSX for about 3 months. Recently I noticed that when I start the car, I sometimes smell rotten eggs and sometimes this gas smell. Is this a serious problem? Also, When you turn off your car after driving, is it normal to see transparent/whitish fumes coming out of the exhaust even after you turn the engine off? <---- on a humid day that is. I'm not a knowledgeable person in cars , so please help. Thanks, Brian

A small amount of white smoke (it's actually just water vapor) for a very short period after turning off the car should be OK.
If strong enough, the rotten eggs and gas smell is something you might want to have the dealer diagnose - but make sure it's reproduceable.

Try using a different brand of gas at your next fill-up. The rotten-egg smell is a byproduct of burning fuel that has a high sulfur content.
