Remove the center consule. Underneath the leather boot around the shifter lever is a rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the tunnel. This prevents road dust, water, and fumes, etc. from entering the cockpit. Under this rubber boot is another rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the transmission. It is possible one or both rubber boots are ruptured. Should replace both anyway, if one is. I assume you have a manual transmission.

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.

Will 1992 miata side mirrors fit exactly on a 1996 miata


The above is a good explanation of accessing the mirror but to answer your question directly, yes, they will fit. All the 90-97 mirrors are interchangeable with the exception of installing later power mirrors onto a 90-91 Miata where it wasn't a factory option. They will mount up fine but do require enlarging the center hole where the wires need to run.

Strong gas fumes coming from 2001 windstar


The "cause" would be a fuel system or EVAP system leak. If the fumes are that strong, then I would take the vehicle back to Ford again and make the sevice manager stick his nose in it and then tell you there is no problem....

In the summertime mostly, the gas tank will build up pressure and make huffing like noise, release the gas cap and it lets out air whats wrong?


As bennet 860 replied the escape of air when you loosen the gas cap is normal. The whole evaporative system is designed to keep gas fumes from leaking into the atmosphere. While you are driving the EVAP controls bleed those trapped fumes into the engine combustion. All this is designed to help clean up the air we breath.
Gasoline is always trying to evaporate, so your Town Car is just keeping the fumes enclosed.
