Question about 2002 Subaru Legacy
Our 2002 Legacy Outback will emit exhaust fumes inside the car when we stop at traffic light or, stop rolling? We recently had the radiator flushed but the problem has been ongoing for several years with several radiator flushes. Defrost and heat are fine while underway so, I'm not convinced of a heater core problem. Is there some filter that I'm not aware of in or, around the heater core box ala Honda (so I have heard)? It's most noticeable when the ambient air temp is below 32 F.
Hi, What you have is a leak in the exhaust system. What you need to is take the vehicle to a repir shop (anyone that can weld) Drive the car up a ramp, and start it, you will see the fumes emitting from the hole in the exhaust and entering the heater ventilation system(thats how its getting in the car) simply weld the leak shut. Ps It can also be the exhaust manifold gasket that needs replacing, check for a leak first.
