exhaust smell in cab with heat running

Anyone else have this problem? I can smell it when I'm stopped at a red light or if I start her up in the morning for work and turn on heat befor I get in to leave. Any thoughts? Thanks Josh

Check your up pipes. They may be leaking. Look for soot around the connections, also check where your down pipe connects to the turbo. That clamp can come loose also.

Had that one too, the fumes in the cabin were killing me. Check the firewall behind the turbo. If you see black soot on it, you need to untie the clamp and realign the turbo and the pipe.

The exhaust manifolds may have warped. Gotta take a close look at the whole deal to narrow it down. May be in more than one area.
