Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

Exhaust fumes coming through heater vents

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus SEL w/24valve DOHC engine. Whenever the heater/AC are on exhaust fumes come through the vents. When the heater/AC are off there are no fumes. Any idea what this could be?

    Same issue but the Max AC setting does not deliver same exhaust fumes, heater settings does. Midas replaced my muffler due to a leak they detected (?!) but no help. They could not ID the leak otherwise. If this problem is common who should I take the car to?

    Digital climate control is off and heater/air conditioning is on always. The temperature works and vent controls but never turns off ever

    Noise comes from heater/ac unit

Air vent schematic


air for the inside of the car comes from the vent at the base of the windscreen or is recirculated inside the car
if you see what appears to be mist, fog or smoke from the ac vents ,it is extra cold air from the ac system that is seen as fog when it hits the air in the car
you will know exhaust fumes by the smell

Fumes escaping from ac vents inside vehicle while driving and leaves a film residue on inside of windshield whenever the heat or defrost are used.


Hello dedunwoodie.
Your heater core is beginning to leak coolant.
As the fan blows through it it is picking up the liquid and depositing it on your windshield.
It will need to be replaced to solve your problem.

Fumes that smell like antifreeze through vents!


well it could be a clog but i doubt it. sounds like you will have to replace the heater core and it takes all day as the entire dash and steering column has to come out.
