SOURCE: exhaust fume in cabin

Get out of cabin! Somehow some way you have a leak in your exhaust sytem that is making it's way into the car. Or you have a situation where your setup allow exhaust in to car. If exhaust is trapped under car body because the tip isn't directing the gas away from vehicle, it may be collecting and entering vehicle. Fix exhaust system and direct fumes away from car. If you have fumes in cabin regularly, that is deadly. If you have an SUV or some kind of car/truck with a back window that rolls down (4-Runner or Tahoe, etc.) or opens into cabin space and the exhaust is under it, it may be being sucked into vehicle. Move exhaust tip. Check for leaks under car or an area where exhaust could build up or both as well. If your exhaust stayed in the system till the end and is directed away from car, this should'nt happen. Your manifold(s) leaking or something as well? Check from manifold(s) to tip(s) for major leak. Make sure exhaust is making it out the end of the system and away from vehicle. Don't be driving kids around in exhaust filled car or anyone for that matter. Hope this helps.

I would suspect the catalytic converter is clogged. You will need to replace the converter.

I smell exhaust fumes in the cabin. What could be causing this?


The most common cause is an exhaust leak in the engine compartment near the engine. The exhaust fumes are pulled into the passenger compartment thru the heater vents. Switching to Rec might cut off the intake of air from outside.

Smelling gas fumes in passenger cabin. Cannot detect any smell under hood. Does it have a cabin air filter ?


There are rubber gas line hoses under the hood & after a number of years they tend to leak ever so slightly. They are under the hood to the passenger side. You may need to replace these fuel lines. There should be a cabin filter but you must take the wiper motor screen off to get at it & it is on the passenger side. Good luck!

Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.

Unwanted fumes gas in ford falcon futura


is the car on recirculate or fresh air? air from your aircon comes through the bottom of your front windscreen, make sure its clear and free of leaves or anything that can cause blockage to stop it from become damp inside the aircon ducts. if it is definately petrol fumes you may have an exhaust leaking from your engine bay, releasing the fumes into your cabin, that is the most common reason for petrol fumes in your aircon.
