    I have a 05 honda odyssey, it also has gas smell in the cabin. I tried to use my nose to see where it comes from but did not know. I sniffed the engine but did not smell gas. I has headache after driving it.

    Any body has had the same problem and already fixed it. How much the fix can cost ?

    The engine acts like it isn't getting enough gas, or doesn't have enough power. It hesitates when in gear and you slow down. It smells like exhaust in the cab.

    I think my exhaust manifold gasket is messed up cause I can hear some noises of my aftermarket exhaust from the front, also I checked for holes and I saw none. but when I start up the car I smell exhaust inside the cabin of the car. what could be the problem?

Check for leaks in the fuel line from the gas tank up to the engine bay.the humming sound you hear at the back is your wheel needs to be replaced.

Smelling exhaust while in traffic

Are you sure is exhaust emission or a fuel smell? If is others Exhaust emission,and is coming in the cabin possible you might have ventilators not working properly,or the doors under the dashboard are kept slight open allowing the outside smell or getting inside the cabin. On the dashboard there is a circulation air button,press it to work. What that button does? Is blocking the outside air coming in and the air you are using iis the inside cabin air only. Use that button for a day and see whether you have any improvement. If so you have to go back to the dealer and explain. Surely they will help you.

The smell i'm having is not the raw gas smell , it smells exhaust fumes getting in the car. i checked for exhaust leaks buut had none

if inded the smell of exhaust is getting into your car i would suggest not driving it until it is properly checked by a licensed meachanic. it could be entering through your heater/AC blower and in return be fatal if left untouched for a period of time

I have a 2002 nissan sentra spec v with 100,100 miles on it, when I run the car the cabin begins to smell like burnt fuel or burnt oil not too sure. No smoke is visible but the smell is a problem....when...

get the exhaust system inspected / checked . You may have a hole in it and exhaust fumes are coming into the cabin somehow.
Carbon monoxide poisoning may be a problem that may lead to fatal consequences.

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.
