    Default Whats that Smell? Exhaust Fumes

    Even my wife noticed that my clothes did not smell like exhaust after driving now.

    Over the winter I removed my vapor tank and gas tank to POR15 them – It’s one of those “while I am at it” things, so I might as well tackle the vapor hoses.
    Be sure to follow this thread as well - http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/t...ent-hoses.html

    I replaced all hoses with nice new fuel hosing – two were Nissan replacement parts – the rest were not

    I have driven with the windows up - one window down - and both windows down. Exhaust smell is 99% gone......

    Here you go if this can help somebody else - make sure you ONLY USE FUEL HOSE for this task:
    1. Yellow Dotted Line – 3/4 “ 2 ft long
    2. Blue Dotted Line – ½” 7 ft long
    3. Orange Dotted Line – 5/8” 47 inches long
    4. Green Dotted Line – Nissan 17239-E4601 Formed - ordered from my local NISSAN parts counter
    5. Blue Solid Line – 3/16” 47” long
    6. New Fill Tube

    I am currently doing the exhaust fume chase myself . I'm thinking the grommets were the big source of my issue-any many others. I am trying the smoke test and it seemed that the smoke was drawn in that area. I guess I will see when i drive.

    There are three OEM parts still out there - The Fill Tank - The stragiht line that is about 7 ft long (blue Color) and the Green one. Just take the part numbers to you local Nissan Parts Counter and they can quote you direct. Takes about 2 days to get them in and no freight cost and no internet mark up. My dealer gives me all parts with their body shop discount of 20%

    What might be the parts number for those hoses? For 100% certainty those hoses are not available here. I might try courtesy Nissan.

    The two OEM are on the worksheet - the fill tank hose is not but just tell them you need a fill tank hose - it's pretty basic.
