Work done on car now has a skunk smell emitting from the car inside and out what could this be?

Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 11:01 AM about the 2001 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just changed timing belt, water pump, and oil gasket.  Car was running great, then when I drove it home from work it started to idle rough and stalled out. mechanic told me that the 2001 Camry has to reset the idle when the timing belt is changed and just to run the car a couple times.  Went out to car this morning and there is a skunk smell coming from the car. Any ideas what could be wrong?
