That doesn't sound right to me. My big ol' FE might stink a bit at the sidpeipe exit, but you cant smell anything when I lift thee bonnet, or not that I've noticed.
Are Chevy's usually like this?
Where is this going - a 'Fords smell better than Chevy's' contest!!!!! That's funny!! I am going to go for the Fords obviously!
Could be a build up of fumes on tickover under the bonnet if the manifold is leaking? But if it is fuel then it does need sorting pronto. Carb check over needed. I guess it's only one of two things, leaking manifold or carb throwing too much fuel in
