I've bought a car that was stuck for two years into a garage and was used for storing a car part that left the rear carpet filled with ATF Oil. I did cleaning of the carpet with Kitchen Antigrease (Mister Músculo), and Dish Washing Soap. Both did clean of dirt and some of the greasy behaviour but the smell keeps strong, and not mentioning on hot days smell.

I've done a deep Google search and got no chemical hint to this. Can you guys help me out? I'm getting some dizzy driving with the smell.



Replace the carpet... it would cost less than all the cleaning needed to remove all the ATF. However, the smell may have soaked into the paint and upholstery. Remove the carpet at least temporarily to check if the smell persists without it.
