So do you guys think emptying the septic tank won't do anything, and is not the source of the problem?

I'm still changing my oil based on color; that trumps all the 3000 mile-ers.

No auto vent under the sink. I forgot to mention I went on the roof and looked down the vent to see if I could see anything. I could only see about 3' down the vent, but didn't see anything. New toilets were installed last year, I'm wondering if may

^^ Or if the roof vent is close to an open window, a breeze from the right direction could do it.

The meat of MA2 is providing the most efficient clutch friction during starting, accelerating and sustained clutch engagement, AND reduced emissions via less oil additive emissions and longer catalytic life.

Your bathroom sink could be vented by a auto vent. Look under the sink and follow the plumbing up. If there is a small round piece higher then your pea trap. Then you have a auto vent. If so it could be stuck open letting the gasses in.

The sink ,shower and toilet have a trap that holds water to stop the gas as mentioned , also there is a vent that goes to the roof to allow the gas to escape . Is the vent clogged?

Any idea why I would start smelling sewer gasses in one of my bathrooms with a toilet and shower? This bathroom is closest to where the inlet to the septic tank is. I did some research on possible causes, but I'm curious to know what you guys think.
