SOURCE: will the crack in the

FOR SURE THE EXHAUST IS SEALED SO CARBON DIOXCIDE (deadly gas) won`t go anywhere but out the back.Also the heat comeing out of crack could start a fire or melt other componets.It`s also sealed so oxyegen sensor works correctly and it`s sealed so the system has a back pressure on engine to run properly.It should be fixed as soon as possible good luck

Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

Fumes in 2000 Toyota Sienna


On the dash there is a switch/lever that allows you to select fresh outside air or recirculate the air in the cab. Any smell may be coming in the freash air position which would allow smelly air from the engine to come into the car. Check for broken flexible exhaust piece or leaking gaskets around the cat converter to start with or a hole in the exhaust pipe inself

I have a small crack in between oil pain in pipe where it bends right where the exhaust system has that silver cantine looking peice which is also broken at the weld... can i just bond or patch the hole...


If it is the exhaust system-- no you can't patch it,
you have to replace that pipe

If it is exhaust converter related or egr,coolant etc
it has to be replaced

If it is something else tell us what

Seems to be oil in the fumes and some time lack of power


If you mean in the exhaust pipe, fumes is coming out together with oil then it is most probably engine oil leaking into the combustion chamber. It could be a head gasket or an oil seal somewhere...Check if your engine oil requires top up on a regular basis, if that is the case then it is definitely a leak somewhere but it is hard to pin point from where. Hope this helps.

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

Engine fumes leaking into car compartment through the ventilation system - how can I fix this problem ?


The main thing you will need to do is to minimise the amount of 'excessive' engine fumes being generated in your engine compartment which in turn will 'leak' into your car compartment: 1) Degrease your engine and check for leaking oil gaskets especially around the oil refill area: oil leaks at the back of the engine falling on your hot exhaust pipes and on your engine block will generate lots and lots of 'nasty' smelling fumes! 2) Check that your exhaust pipes joints are well sealed especially the one contained within the engine compartment: taking great precautions, check for the obvious leaks from smoke emitted but you could use soapy water to assist. 3) Check that the lining in your engine compartment are in good condition taking particular attention to the 'Firewall' ones (e.g. the one between the engine compartment and the passenger side compartment). 4) Check for broken heating/cooling air hoses leading into the passenger compartment.
Hope it helps!

Diesel fumes in cab, '03 f250


If its raw fuel fumes check for fuel leaks on top of the motor. If its exhaust fumes you probably have an exhaust leak on the cross pipe at the rear of motor over the transmission. Take a telescoping mirror and flash light have a look. Might even slide under neath and take a peak as well. Make sure wheels are chocked with something first.

Exhaust fumes in car when heater is running and car is at a stop.


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.

1995 cherokee 2.5 td 150k miles will not start.


The oil pressure dropping to zero is common for cherokees. Replace the oil pressure sending unit and it will be good as new. Cracked exhaust manifolds are also common. Usually it will crack where the 2 pipes are welded into 1 pipe before it connects to the front pipe. There are lots of replacement headers out there to choose from. I just ordered one through quadratec.
