What should you check if the exhaust smells strong the car stutters at idle you have a loss of power and have recently had the injectors changed?

Hey Chris==You really need special gauges to check the exhaust gasses. Take it to a garage that haas these gauges. GoodluckJoe Thanks joe, but I just got emmisions, and everything that Arizona emissions testing tests was about 1/2 the limit, where 2 years ago they were less than a 10th. I had the injectors replaced, and changed out the Y-pipe on the exhaust before, but now the gradual problem has given my car a major performance hit, the exhaust is very rich, (in other words in engine not getting enough air). What could be things that would cause that? I use sythetic oil now to help protect, but there is definatly a problem. And lets say it's not compression, what then? Check your EGR valve. A plugged EGR will cause loss of power and will cause the exhaust to smell like rotten eggs.

Upgrade the intake, exhaust, and fuel injectors.

the exhaust side is by the exhaust manifold,intake side is next to fuel injectors.

programmer, more boost, larger injectors, intake, exhaust.

Automobiles release exhaust. These exhaust gases deplete ozone.

I HAVE THIS PROBLEM ON AUDI A4 2004 PLATE, IM CONVINCED THAT IT IS CAUSED BY EXHAUST BLOWING AS IVE HAD IT SERVICED RECENTLY

Are you sure it's a leaking exhaust? If you think it is, then get a new exhaust fitted! But are you sure it isn't diesel smoke coming off the exhaust due to leaking seals on one or more injectors? That's the favorite!

User Avatar

First question is do you have a spark? That is the most likely problem. Other problems that would cause raw fuel in the exhaust are bad injectors or a bad fuel pump - although to have all the injectors go at the same time would be nearly impossible.

The purpose of a cylinder head is to safely house the exhaust. It also has the purpose of housing the intake valves and the fuel injectors.

rough idle,execsive smoke from exhaust ,low power could all be symptoms of bad injectors . also check the delivery pump pressure it could also cause the same symptoms

The sensor in the exhaust manifold is the oxygen sensor. It measures the amount of oxygen left in the exhaust after combustion. The computer then takes that information and "decides" if the car is running rich or lean. It then adjusts the fuel injectors to keep the emissions at a minimal level.

Sounds like the injectors are failing by staying open too long. Probably time for new injectors. Impossible to test without an inline injector tester. Hope this helps.

The Oxygen Sensor on a 1989 Cherokee 4.0L is on the exhaust pipe on the left side of the engine just below the exhaust manifold. You can see it from above but you must replace it from below. It is pretty easy to reach. I recently changed mine and it took only 10 minutes using an O2 sensor wrench.

Better air intake, better exhaust, install headers, change out your fuel injectors, add a bolt-on turbocharger, have the ECM reprogrammed.

User Avatar

A whole lot. You'll need to replace the intake, redo the exhaust, replace the injectors... there has to be a precise fuel/air mixture in these engines.

intake, exhaust, fuel pump, and injectors there a number of bolt ons and theres always turbos and superchargers. http://www.lextasy.com/IS300_intakes_ctg.htm ----

Check for cracks in the exhaust manifold - Air pulled in can lean the exhaust and cause the oxygen sensor to give false readings

User Avatar

the inside of your car will smell like exhaust if you have C.F (cabin filter) in you car and it has not been changed recently This may sound dumb, but some people may miss it. If you have a car in front of you that smells bad, or are in a smelly environment, and you don't have the recycle air button on, "fresh air" will enter the car.

I have a 1999 corolla and recently changed the starter. Top bolt was threaded into the starter from the back of the motor. It was located under the exhaust manifold, and I could not see it. I got a socket wrench on it and removed it last and installed it loosely, first.

User Avatar

i dont know what you mean exactly, but if you mean that the exhaust has changed to a steam you most likely have a head or a head gasket problem.

User Avatar

When was the last time you changed your O2 sensors? They are supposed to be changed about 60,000 miles. Could be responsible for rough idle and popping in the exhaust. Otherwise it is likely a vacuum hose that is leaking.
