newbie Question

So when I stop at a light, and have to wait I tend to smell the exhaust in the cab. Is this normal or is their a leak or something somewhere. I don't notice it in the am when I am letting her warm up.

TIA
Doris

first off a diesel is kinda easy to find a leak look for a black spot on the exhaust I would say if you are sure its the exhaust smell then yes you have a leak.. also if the wind is blowing right and your fan or heater is on or window rolled down then the smell would come in..

Thanks for the quick reply! The heater is usually on, but the windows are up. To chilly for them to be down LOL I know in our 150 that we could smell every other car on the road! UGGGGG. but this is diffrent, it happens only when at an idle. and most times when no one else is around.

I will look for a black spot, and I guess I could play with turning the heater off before I stop see if it makes a difference just to figure out whats up.

I would check around the turbo, the turbo up pipes for the leak. The Down pipe connection at the turbo because, those are the closest to the cab. Also check the manifolds to make sure they are tight and the gaskets are not leaking.

I know that while letting mine warm up in the driveway, if the wind is blowing the right way, I smell my exhaust, but then again I really like the smell!

thanks I will check the turbo to.

Yeah If it was just when I let it idle in the drive way it would not bother me. but I got a headache the other night at a stop light it was so strong.

I had the same problem with a 03 7.3 and it was the down pipe for the turbo leaking. And its wasn't enough to make alot of noise but after looking at it you could see the back around the pipe where it was leaking just like BigCountry Said.
