That tells me that its definitely a head gasket leak, behind the exhaust manifold there is a row of bolts that runs from front to back about half an inch below the bolts is where the seam between the head and the engine block is see if you can clean this area off and look for fresh antifreeze. does the oil look like coffee with cream in it?

Where does the upstream passenger side 02 sensor bolt in on the exhaust i found the sensor hanging from the electrical connector busted out the engine its a 1994 ford thunderbird


It should be screwed directly into the exhaust manifold. If you found it hanging, and you do not have a major exhaust leak, then I would say that your O2 sensor is broken. Look for a bung on the manifold and you will have to extract what is left of your old one.

Are you noticing any puddles under your truck? You can buy or possably rent a pressure tester that you just remove the radiator cap and hook the tester up in it's place and pump up the cooling system and watch for leaks. If there are no puddles it must be leaking into the engine from a leaky head gasket or intake manifold gasket. Do you notice excess steam or white smoke from your exhaust? Does your oil look milky? If it does water is leaking into the crankcase. Does it run rough at all? You can start your truck with the radiator cap off and watch for bubbles. If you see alot of bubbles it could be exhaust or compression gasses which would confirm a bad head gasket or cracked head.

The power steering fluid leak is most likely a hose. BMWs are notorious for power steering hose leaks. On this car, replacing the power steering hose is not too hard once you get the air filter box and a few other things out of the way.
The smell is most likely the valve cover gasket leaking onto the exhaust manifold. This is another very common problem on BMWs, and is another problem that is not difficult to correct. Once you take off the cabin air filter tray, the valve cover is easy to access.

HI, The easiest way to find a cooling system leak to preform a pressure test. This test requires the use of some special equipment so I will just give you some common areas of these engines that leak. 1. check the upper radiator hose at the radiator. the plastic tank cracks sometimes. 2. check around the thermostat housing. 3. The worse for last there is a coolant passage tube that runs under the intake manifold almost impossible to see without taking things apart. but when it leaks the coolant seems to show up n the floor on the passenger side back by the firewall. I hope these help and you can locate the problem. Be careful when looking for these problems when the engine is hot you can get burnt. Good luck

Check door rubber seal for damage / wear.

To test exhaust simply place a flexible object over exhaust pipe to seal it. If no leaks it should blow it off.

95 nissan quest - strong smell of exhaust in the cabin area


The exhaust leak is almost always broken studs on the exhaust manifolds. It makes a tick noise when cold and usually goes away when the engine warms up. After a year or so, the noise doesn't go away.

Your heater-a/c air intake is at the base of the windshield through the screen on the passenger side. WHen the exhaust leaks from the manifold, the exhaust gas gets sucked into the air intake.
You can put the heater in recirc mode and it will draw air in from inside the car instead of though the outside air intake. You can't leave it in recirc for long in winter or your car will get ice or fogging on the windows from too much humidity. Take it off recirc after 10 minutes.
