Mazda 2008 mx5: I am getting engine fumes coming into the cabin via the cabin air intake.


There are a couple of things to consider...

First the cabin air intake is generally in a tray that once the engine compartment hood or bonnet is closed should be almost completely isolated from the engine compartment due to the rubber sealing strip and other rubber components. Perhaps some of these are missing or in poor condition. If heater intake water drains are fitted they should be self closing...

In good condition normal smells or fumes should not get past those seals.

The other consideration is where are the fumes coming from? Unless the engine has an exhaust or oil leak or a breather problem the amount of fumes generated to leak into the cabin, even if the sealing isn't in good order, should be minimal.

Why is my Mazda mx5 got grey smoke coming out of tail pipe aswell as water what could this be


Hoops, classic sign of blown head gasket between pots.
check to see if there is oil residue floating on top of your water in Radiator and also smell it if it smells of exhaust type of smell then that's a sure sign, do you keep having to top up rad if so sorry it's the head gasket.

Good luck.

Start from easyest -
1. Check spark plugs and distributor for wear and aging
2. Check air filter
3. Check exhaust for any obstructions
4. Check fuel filter.(if petrol is dark - then you should change the filter)

Ford focus 1.6 zitec petrol, engine warning light flashing, engine chugging, very high fuel consumption, fumes smell when stationary, exhaust seems ok, recently change speed sensor and coil pack?


try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

Can you tell us more?
How many miles on the car?
Which side of the engine area? Drips after you park etc?
Oil ever low? If so how often do you ad oil?
Any visible oil on engine and bay components under hood?

likely areas for oil leaks may include depending on model and make:
Oil pan gasket seal.
Oil pressure sending unit.
Oil filter installed dry or over tightened at your last oil change.
Oil drain plug loose or plug gasket needs replacing.
Valve cover gasket needs replacing.
Crank shaft seals need replacing.
Distributor seals need replacing.
RTV gasket sealer beyond expected life and need replacing for other engine components, inspection plates or covers.
