Smells problem
1986 Volvo 240 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Sometimes the car runs fine and then all of the sudden it starts to sputter and smells like exhaust, why so?

Do you
have the same problem?

ON A "RED" ENGINE, THE THINGS TO LOOK FOR ARE THE MAINTENANCE ITEMS. SUCH AS SPARK PLUGS, VALVE ADJUSTMENT, THROTTLE SERVICE, AIR FILTER, ETC. ALSO THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR COULD HAVE A PROBLEM, MAYBE LOOK AT THE PRE-HEAT T-STAT AND CHECK IF ITS STUCK IN OPEN HOT POSITION. ANY OTHER SYMPTUMS? IS THERE IS AN EXHAUST NOISE? IS THERE BLACK SMOKE COMING OUT OF EXHAUST PIPE?
