[T3] Oooh that Smell!

It might be getting in at the back of the main heat exchangers.  The end
clamp on the shrouding can cover a hole and be hard to spot until you poke
it.  A small hole there might be directing the fumes away from the heat
exchanger until the air-flow changes.

Well im in my last days driving the square and using the engine heat Im
getting an exaust smell.  The muffler and connections look and sound tight
BUT, its odd. I only get the smell when the heat is on and ONLY when making
a turn.  Not a turn in the roadway but at intersections, eather right or
left turn I feel a breeze across the face and I smell it. but not when
starting up  straight.

The seals in the car are all tight, its just odd WHEN I get it, driving
along I seldom smell anything.
