2002 Mitsubishi Montero exhaust odor in cabin

Exhaust smell inside my car. How to fix it

Imagine me raising my hand . Any independent muffler shop can fix this a lot easier than a do it yourselfer can . Plus this is a health issue so find a shop soon .

Step 1) Find out where it is coming from - broken exhaust, cracked manifold, ect.

Stick a potato into the exhaust pipe to seal it up, start car, find where the hiss is coming from

Step 2) Fix the crack, split or broken whatever that is letting the exhaust go where it shouldn’t.
