Exhaust stinking all the sudden

Yesterday I started the truck after sitting only one day and wow . The exhaust smell hit me and made me turn my head fast . The truck has never smelled like this before it's kind of like a wet smell / mothball smell. It really bothers you to get a wiff and did this again after work this morning. No coolant missing the heads have H 11's in there no egr. It just stinks but runs like a champ .

Check your FICM voltage.

Have you checked your exhaust to see if there's any road kill attached? This happened to me in my OBS and I couldn't figure it out. Turns out I didn't avoid an already-killed varmint in the road.

Dave, I just got a new FICM about 4 months ago .
Started the truck up yesterday and this morning after work no smell. I'll set it to
stock and see if it comes back , BUT please don't ask me to drive a stock 6.0 lmao ...

No road kill or cats, not the death smell It was like a wet moldy mothball smell
that could take your breath from you.
