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.

Why do I keep smelling car exhaust fumes when there aren't any


I had that issue with a car I used to own, the problem was that the exhaust system was very old and rusty, some places had leaks and somehow the fumes managed to get in the cabin, colorless CO and CO2, if that's the case, very dangerous situation because can cause you to faint and lose control of vehicle or can also poison you.... another possibility is that maybe your cabin air filter is very dirty with smoke and then you smell inside the car.

Mazda 2008 mx5: I am getting engine fumes coming into the cabin via the cabin air intake.


There are a couple of things to consider...

First the cabin air intake is generally in a tray that once the engine compartment hood or bonnet is closed should be almost completely isolated from the engine compartment due to the rubber sealing strip and other rubber components. Perhaps some of these are missing or in poor condition. If heater intake water drains are fitted they should be self closing...

In good condition normal smells or fumes should not get past those seals.

The other consideration is where are the fumes coming from? Unless the engine has an exhaust or oil leak or a breather problem the amount of fumes generated to leak into the cabin, even if the sealing isn't in good order, should be minimal.

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.

Look for a bad gasket where the pipe connects to the manifold. Could just be loose bolts or a bad gasket.

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.
