Exhaust fumes

Post by jeanandre » Fri Oct 07, 2016 3:46 pm

I have seen the other post regarding fumes in the cabin but my problem seems to be more outside. I have only had my Qashqai for about a month. I have found a strong smell of exhaust fumes after a run be it long or short. Her indoors finds it more from the passenger side when she gets out the car. Has anyone else found this on their car. There is no blown exhaust sound you would get if there was a hole in the exhaust.

My QQ smells of nothing outside with the engine running or not, and fuel brand should play not part in this.

I'm thinking your DPF or Catalyst is not working correctly and you should get your exhaust system checked, it could still be leaking. You could even go into an MOT Test centre & ask for the exhaust emissions to be checked, although I guess there would be a charge for this.

Have you considered the possibility that a heat shield or some other part may be either touching or to close to the exhust? That could cause a similar smell.

If the heat shield or any other part was touching the exhaust u would hear rattling inside the car, possibly outside also.

True, but anything plastic or rubberised wouldn't make a loud enough noise to be noticeable.

Your quite right, but anything plastic or rubbery would not smell like diesel exhaust fumes.
