Re: Bad/strong exhaust smell at idle
It is that time of year. With colder temperatures the warm exhaust will tend to rise more and manage to find its way into the ventilation system. This is made worse by the fact that colder starts means more unburned fuel in the exhaust after start-up and cold mornings usually mean still air. You need to point the truck into a light breeze to see if it is an exhaust leak problem. An exhaust leak will generally give you the smell even if the truck is pointed in a slight breeze.
