There may be a hole in your exhaust system causing fumes to leak into the car. This can be dangerous and should be fixed immediately.?รฆ

exhaust is pretty easy to smell. If you smell it, then you likely do, also check the rear end of the car for possible places where the exhaust can get into. a battery powered carbon monoxide detector will also work

A car pollutes by emitting fumes from the exhaust. The less efficient a car is, the worse the pollution is.

Your exhaust may be leaking slightly at the front. The fumes can easily end up in the car this way. Exhaust gasses are poisonous so you should get it looked at as soon as you can. Another cause could be that a breather pipe has come of the engine or air box.

Could be a leak in the manifold, or a hole in the exhaust, and when you stop the car there is no pressure blowing off the fumes, so it floats up into the car.

If you smell fumes, you should get out of the room, car, or house. Opening windows will help get rid of the smell.

If the car heat has a fresh air setting, then it could be drawing air from outside of the vehicle. The fumes are most likely coming from a problem under the hood.

Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide are contained in car exhaust fumes. Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas that if too much is breathed in, you die.

User Avatar

No, since they're not actually breathing the fumes.

Well if you have a hole in your exhaust like rite under your car, it is able for the exhaust fumes to get into your car and kill you ;P

You can use a carbon monoxide detector if you suspect a dangerous level of exhaust inside your car. They are available at Wal-Mart, Target, amazon.com, etc.

Take a second, lightly sniff gasoline fumes before its been burned, then compare with exhaust fumes, and see which you are smelling. Exhaust fumes you'll naturally smell around an idling car. unburned gasoline could be the result of an improperly set carb, mixing the wrong amounts of fuel and air, leaving you with unburned gasoline that is boiled, evaporated, and spit out the exhaust. Too much evaporated gas turns your exhaust black, so ive been told, so there could be a sign.

That could be a leaking exhaust system. A leaking exhaust system is very dangerous! Please have it checked out ASAP.

If the car is filling with exhaust fumes, that is a health hazard, and is almost certainly caused by a broken or leaky exhaust pipe.

A bad exhaust will cause gas fumes to get inside the Nissan Maxima while it is idling. Gas fumes, if contained in an enclosed space, is dangerous.

If fumes are coming into a car it is most likely not going to be coming from a head gasket. The more likely places will be a blown exhaust gasket, exhaust doughnut, or some other type of exhaust leak.

After you are dead car fumes (exhaust) does not do anything to your body. However, if while you are alive you are exposed to car fumes in a small, poorly ventilated space, you may become dead.

User Avatar

it is called the Exhaust pipe

User Avatar

there is always exhaust (expect when the engine's off or hybird) unless you are too close to the car in front of you.
