Several times now I have pulled up to a stop light and have smelled diesel exhaust in the cab. (hate for it to over power that new car smell) The windows were up and the A/C-HTR was off. Just curious if anyone has experienced any exhaust leaks with stock pipes?

I too noticed it when my truck was new, dont notice it anymore unless I change the oil with rotella. It has something to do with a breather. some of the experts will chime in.

Well I had some extra time and decided to do some sniffing around, literally, anyway I found the V band clamp loose at the turbo down pipe. Hopefully that will take care of it.

that could potentially cause it, the a/c drain is very close to the clamp and if leaking at the right angle and the sun and moon were aligned, it could put vapor up the a/c drain and into the truck

Even on cold days, when driving in stop and go traffic, I leave my window down so I a can smell the diesel. My wife just recently got me to top pouring diesel fuel on my corn flakes in the morning.

Mine has started to do it pretty bad for the last three months.... I will have to check it out down there.... Has it fixed your problem?

Eric, I see what you're saying but there shouldn't be any fumes, right?? I did notice the clamp doesn't fit very well around the flanges of the down tube and exhaust pipe. I wiped the soot off the clamp and will check it again for leaks. Next time it will be the dealers problem
