Its possible that the oily fumes are from your a/c system..some models use same evaporator core for heater and a/c..if there is a rupture in the core, oil will be carried by the blower into your car interior..check your 134a or 12 refrigerant levels of the a/c and test pressures, if low or no press. theres your problem..hint: the a/c oil has a foul smel.. luck It sounds as if you have a heater core leaking. If you check the carpeting over on the passenger front side of the car, it will probably be wet. The fumes you are smelling are ethylene glycol, and the mist does not feel good in your lungs.

Windows are best left closed in a tornado. If you are not hit hard, the windows can prevent interior damage. If you are hit hard by a strong enough tornado some windows will break anyway. But if a tornado is coming it is best not to waste time opening or closing windows. Take cover immediately.

Mountain houses have no windows at the back because there would be no light coming through them - you'd be looking at the dirt or rock that made up the mountain!

If and only if the interior temperature of the car does not get above 40°F, you could keep the smoked turkey in the car for the same amount of time you keep it in the fridge. The problem is that the radiant heat of the sun coming through the windows can warm the car significantly.

No. If a tornado is coming you will not have time to board up your windows.

Heat gets transferred from the window of the car into it. There is so much heat coming in that there is no way the car can keep up with the heat coming in. Trapping the heat. Same thing happens with the green house effect.A:The way a greenhouse works is that the transparent glass is transparent to the wavelengths of the sunlight coming through it, but is not very transparent to the wavelengths of energy trying to radiate back through it. Since we do not see in those wavelengths, the glass looks transparent to us. That is true of a greenhouse where plants are being grown as well as a car with its glass windows. The sunlight coming through the windows pours through easily, but the hot interior of the car radiates the energy back out at a different wavelength where the glass is not transparent. Similarly the greenhouse effect keeps the sun's heat in our atmosphere, preventing it radiating out into space.

The simple answer is to get to an interior safe room. A basement or storm cellar is best because it puts you below the path of the flying debris. An interior room such as a bathroom with no windows is a much poorer alternative. For a more thorough discussion, see the link to NOAA's tornado safety web site.
