Hey everyone.

Iím currently working on my friends van. I donít know much about euro vans but I know some basics. He has been telling me there is exhaust coming from the rear heater behind the passenger seat. Is this normal? If not what are some things I can look at to fix it!

Any advice is appreciated thanks!

Well, I wouldn't think exhaust coming into the vehicle is normal, hope he's driving with the windows down. I would check under the van to see where the exhaust leak is. It's working its way in somehow so I would look for cracks, rust holes, open seams, etc. Good luck.

He's got steam coming from a broken heat rear exchanger, gazing into my crystal ball. Ask him if the smoke has a sweet odour. Thats French for smell

Thanks for the reply! It does have a little sweet odor smell to it. When you say rear exchanger is the the heater core youíre talking about?

Is it possible for it to leak up to the floor?

Probably if it is spritzing? The cooling system is under pressure so coolant could spray up, I guess. That pressure is important for your engine so I would explore and fix that asap
