it might be coming from the exhaust pipe.
The best way is to crank the engine and check the exhaust pipe up till the end and look for the leakage points to the car.

I hav a 98 Malibu Was idleing funny change the tps didnt fix it now when driveing it acts like it wants to die but when i stop it dies still acts like the idleing is still offf

There are a few things you can check for, 1. the idle air control valve for carbon and the same for the throttle plate having varnish or carbon build-up . Use spray carb. cleaner if any of these are black with carbon.2. A dirty mass air flow sensor will cause stalling and Idle problems . You can get cleaner just for mass air flow sensors ,don't use carb.clean ,or brake clean ! Or you could possibly have a vacuum leak ! check all vacuum hose , you can spray carb cleaner at intake gaskets to check for leaks , but be careful it is flammable !!!

I got a 1999 gmc sonoma 4.3 v6 vortec I have strong exhaust fumes coming threw the a/c vents while the a/ is on

You have a leak in the exhaust system. Have it looked at soon. You don't want to be breathing carbon monoxide while driving. If you hear a "ticking" sound while the engine is running (more predominant with a cold engine) it's most likely an exhaust manifold leak, either a bad gasket, broken stud or cracked manifold. Other possible causes could be the "donut" gaskets that seal the Y pipe to the exhaust manifolds, the Y pipe to catalytic converter gasket (if equipped).

It sounds like an exhaust pipe is broken causing you to have an exhaust leak. If you can drive your car to your local muffler shop that can either repair or replace the broken part.

Get the exhaust checked, if it is leaking the exhaust gas'es will be coming in the car. most garages can check an exhaust for you.

Hope this helps

Exhaust manifold has a leak planning on drive

All possible damage to your car aside, you could potentially fill the car with exhaust gas. Best case you'll get woozy or a headache. Worst case you could pass out while driving. It is not a good idea.

Exaust leak back of the motor is this a normal problem

I have a Dodge Caravan and mine does not leak exhaust, so it sounds like your exhaust has a hole in it or a crack, or a loose fitting. I would get it checked asap, because carbon monoxide can be deadly! I had an exhaust leak and it gave me headaches & nausea.
