Exhaust smell in cabin    (Score: 1, Normal) 10-08-2003 14:52

I notice that if I am idling at a stop light with the window down, I will start to smell exhaust fumes. I drive a 93 del sol. I am thinking that there could be a leak along the exhaust line, but I hope that someone else will be able to give me a better idea. Also I have noticed that when I turn on the heater, I also smell like something of exhaust coming in. What are you opinions. Thanks.

Probably a leak from the engine bay...headers or where the headers meet the exhaust. Rev the car up from the throttle body cable (??) and usually u can see where the smoke is coming from. You may need to let the air clear before retrying otherwise you'll get confused if theres too much smoke.
