First of All Get a Engine Diagostics and see if there are any problems and fix them from a Prof Machenic If your car has not been tuned then change the spark plug, spark plug wires, fuel line filter. If this does not solve then change the distributer cap. That should solve the basic prolems of Shaking engine. Also check for the engine oil levels from time to time for the exhaust smell. (if car is old do put the engine oil treatmet like MOTOR UP, and other...which are available in the market)

Since this morn my car has started shaking and not functioning properly. I can also smell a burning smell coming through the fans and the boot? Could this be the Exhaust?

you could have a small hole in your exhaust between your engine and your muffler....you can patch the exhaust or replace your exhaust

Try replacing your Oxygen sensors they are located on the catalytic converter. I had the same problem with my 94 Caprice and that turned out to be the problem.

You can smell exhaust because your exhaust pipes and exhaust system has worn out. As a result, the exhaust and carbon monoxide it contains leaks inside the van. Soon, it will not be a problem because the carbon monoxide will have killed all of you.

Check engine light (usually), sulpher/egg smell from exhaust, severly decreased fuel economy, sooty exhaust/tailpipe Check engine light (usually), sulpher/egg smell from exhaust, severly decreased fuel economy, sooty exhaust/tailpipe

They don't. You need to stop sniffing exhaust fumes, mister.

The engine may backfire excessively. You may also smell a strong exhaust odor in the riding position. In worst cases, it can cause the engine to run lean.

two things, exhaust has a leak of gases or fuel leak from engine bay

My 3.8 Impala had a slight antifreeze smell from the engine compartment, and was much worse at the exhaust It was also missing, the problem was the upper intake plenum. I know that on this motor it is a common problem, and can quickly progress to the point of the car no longer running. You could have a small leak anywhere that is evaporating before it can drip.

Any exhaust smell in a car cab indicates an exhaust leak somewhere along the line. Th reason you don't smell it while driving is because the air flowing air under the car is blowing the exhaust gasses away before it can rise into the cab. After the car sits for a while, the gasses seep out of the leak, and up into the cab.

Check your fluid level in your cooling system. Run the engine and check the fluid level after several minutes to see if in fact it is your coolant entering the exhaust system. If this is the case your engine block could be cracked and might have to be replaced.

Having a dead skunk in the exhaust might be your problem. It's serious, I get it a lot in my Camaro. if it smells like rotten eggs its a bad catalytic converter....chances are its this much more likely than a dead skunk.

User Avatar

look to see if exhaust is touching plastic somewhere. (get under car) engine probly isn't the cause.

User Avatar

Depends on what the smell is and what is causing it. Have the catalytic converter tested before you spend the money to replace it. It maybe something else causing this problem.

A fuel leak. A coolant leak, coolant has a sweet smell. An exhaust leak. A burnt clutch. A burnt rubber smell, from a slipping accessory belt/tensioner or rubber contacting the exhaust. A Moldy smell with the A/C on from a dirty/moldy evaporator. An oil leak, if it is leaking near the exhaust manifold, from say the valve cover. A smell from burnt brakes from a faulty brake caliper. A burnt plastic smell, from plastic melting against the exhaust( wiring loom, or plastic bag on catalytic converter). A. mildew smell caused by a water leak, clogged evap case drain, flogged sunroof drain.

I had this problem, the smell was coming from the sleeve over the shifter in a manual Toyota tacoma. My friend, a qualified mechanic, said it was probably a failed seal between the cab and belly of the vehicle that allowed oil burning off the exhaust from the engine, into the cab.

Possibly a problem with one of your belts?

Here is a couple possibles, Engine or transmission oil leaking onto the hot exhaust. Plastic shopping bag caught onto exhaust system. Yesterdays chilli

Carbon monoxide (exhaust gas) will cause a headache. It can also induce uncontrollable sleepiness. Have this checked immediately. Chances are you have an exhaust leak.

User Avatar

don't ever smell your car's exhaust.

User Avatar

Running the exhaust blower will expel fuel or exhaust vapors trapped in the engine compartment. This is a precautionary step. A visual inspection the engine compartment is also a good habit to get into if you have not started the boat for some time. Things to look (and smell) for in the engine compartment that might tell you something is wrong with your boat before you start it include: fuel or exhaust, water, and broken or loose motor parts.

2 most obvious signs of exhaust leak are noise and smell of exhaust fumes
