2004 Hyundai Elantra Question: Exhaust Smell Inside Car Burning Eyes/Lungs



, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, Olympia, WA, June 20, 2011, 00:57

Mileage is approximately 130,000. It's a bad smog day in my car and smell does not go away with circulating air; windows down helps only a little. I've maintain regular oil changes, just had an oil change and point check..had to replace a very dirty engine filter and inside air filter...didn't help.

    You have a bad exhaust leak in the engine compartment allowing the fumes to get into the vent system. Have a shop inspect for the source.
