About three weeks ago my husband told me that every now and then and sometimes all day he can smell something like vinegar. It comes and goes and it doesn't seem to have any causes that we can find or think of. It may be while he is home or working, he spends a lot of time in his CR-V, sometimes 12 or 14 hours at a time. I have spent hours in it with him at times and I don't smell anything. I can't smell anything about him that smells bad or like vinegar. We made an appointment with his doctor but he is stumped too. We asked for a blood test since this is making us very nervous and the doctor agreed. It all came back normal. He is now going to have some tests, x-ray and CT scan, I think, sometime next week. Do you have any thoughts on this?
