THERE'S A SMELL OF EXHAUST

1993 Acura Integra • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 192,000 miles

I have a 1993 Acura Integra 192,000 miles. When the car is idling or at a stop light with the windows down. There's a smell of exhaust. Is there a leak from under the car? Please help!

With the vehicle safely lifted, have a partner start the vehicle. Plug the tailpipe with a large rag pressed over the end of the pipe. Note the exhaust leaks under the vehicle. It should be a simple job. Determine if the cause is a gasket, rusted pipe, hole, etc. That will dictate how you fix the problem. Don't forget to look under the hood as the problem could be at the exhaust manifold as well.
