I was getting the Nomad out of winter storage, cleaning her up and getting my inspection sticker last Friday. In detailing the engine I had unplugged some sensors and the injectors so I could better clean and polish. When done, went for a ride and got the inspection sticker, then I went and picked up the wife and we headed out for lunch, and she commented that it smelled and she was correct. When I went to start up the Nomad, it started real rough and the idle speed was faster then normal. I was thinking it the gas went bad sitting over the winter, and by the time we got home, it really did have a strong smell. Ended up being the H2O sensor wasn’t connected so the computer didn’t now how hot the engine was and I guess was richening up the mixture. As soon as it was reconnected, the idle speed dropped and the smell went away. The point of this long tail, the suggestion to check the engine tune is a good one.
