    Exhaust smell!

    Hey guys, I've had a check engine light come on, went to auto zone came up to be o2 sensor but my problem is that I can smell exhaust in my ac and can hear like a leak in exhaust when car is on. My possible source is a leak in exhaust or plugged catalytic converter? Whats ya"all thoughts?

    You should check the catalytic converter flange. It may be a weak point on the exhaust.

    Went to muffler shop today and could not find a possible leak in exhaust other than probably on donuts where cat meets or at manifold. Also its only on passenger side.

    Well that sounds like two possible spots.

    I have a leak at the spot where the cat meets the manifold. I was gonna get new cats but i changed my mind. I am gonna get it re-welded. For 60 or so bucks. I am taking the cat off myself.

    It sounded cool but since it was on a Caddillac, no no, not too good
