I've got a 2002 Escape, and all of a sudden when temps dropped below 0 (here in MN) I get a strong exhaust smell inside the vehicle ??? Where shoulod I start looking for the problem ? Should I temporarily plug the exhaust pipe to see if that helps me find a leak ? Exhaust noise seems normal, not loud like when you get a hole in a muffler or something. There does seem to be a strange noise coming from around the engine......cracked exhause manifold, or blown gasket ?


Ok exhaust smells tend to intensify in cold weather. your vehicle is using more fuel the colder it gets. once the engine warms up does the smell go away? if it does, then i wouldn't worry. ... 2002 Ford Escape

I have two problems with my 1994 Chevy Silverado: 1) As soon as I turn the key on or immediately after turning the truck off I get a clicking sound from my heater blower area. As near as I can tell there is a 'gate' that is not opening or closing for some reason and I am not sure as to how to fix it. 2) Is there an easy way to get the 'Y' pipe off of the the exhaust manifolds to replace the pipe and the doughnut gaskets short of taking the manifolds off since the bolts seem to be very corroded?


The clicking noise is from AC/heater damper gear which either recirculates the inside air or channels fresh air from outside the vehicle.. When you first turn ignition on the the PCM tells the damper to open allowing outside air into the vehicle.. It ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I have a 1992 crown victoria. it idles and runs fine when cold or normal weather outside, but when it gets hot outside(80f-95f)it starts to sputter, the idle is very rough and i mostly hear it coming out of the exhaust pipes. (even with new plugs, wires and air-filter) oh and it has 2-1/2 exhaust piping after the exhaust manifolds (duals - no x or y pipe) and only has two catalytic converters

I have a 91 chevy, 2wd with a 350. My oil pressure gauge reads 0 at idle and goes up to 30 when I get on it. Truck runs great no pings or knocks. Took off the valve cover, usually oil just trickles out of rockers in my past trucks, it was shootin out, actually got some on my exhaust manifold and fenderwell. Looks like I have great oil pressure, but gauge says otherwise, should I be worried?


Sounds like you have good pressure but would not hurt to put a mechanical gauge on it to verify that. Chances are that the sending unit is going bad or a passageway to it is obstructed. If pressure is good, change the sender and put some marvel oil i ... 1991 Chevrolet C1500

I believe I have all the bolts holding the water pump removed but I can't get the water pump out. Is there some trick that I'm missing?
