    Is it blowing cold air? Just making sure it's blowing air at all.

    If it's only cold, you could have a theromstat problem - the engine may not be warming up. Check the hoses going into and coming out of the heater core. If they are both cool or luke warm, then it's a thermostat issue. If one is hot and one is cool, then you could have a heater core restriction.

    The exhaust fumes - make sure you do not have any exhaust leaks - this is bad all the way around. Besides that, make sure you have the reciruclation setting on, keeping air from coming in from the outside.
