Re: Exhaust/Gas Smell Inside of Car. Please Help!
Great info here, thanks.
Got some of this in the 66, or just noticed it this summer. Probably because I use it more and more, and have the other issues knocked down.
But with the drivers window open, and especially with the vent open, I smell exhaust. With the pass window also open, its ok. With the kickpanel vent open, and, or the heater on its ok. Windows closed ok.
So, this led to the redneck floor resto that I regaled you all with in gory detail on some other posts, to seal the front floors. Then I realized the trunk gasket had shrunk, so I sealed it, sealed the trunk floor a bit better, closed up the old shifter cable hole in the floor. Dont have a cowl to hood seal, but will get asap. Got a couple more holes where the steering column to cowl is missing some bolts. Got some rust around the trunk gasket channel. And no headliner, so the trunk is open to the backseat sail panel area.
Kind of annoying, because the new exhaust is tight all the way back and the old one had rusted through tailpipes.
