Hi,
I have an intermittent problem with a smell of exhaust fumes inside my 2005 2.4 jtd. On start up the car will also often smell of fumes on the outside of the car however there are no visible exhaust gases. The car has covered approx 120,000 miles and apart from this issue it runs extremely well with great performance and fuel economy. A routine exhaust check at a local fast fit didn't reveal any obvious problems.....any ideas? :confused:

Sounds like an injector seal is going. Take the plastic cover off the top of the engine and you should be able to see the injectors. :)
If a seal is leaking the gases that escape are dragged into the cars cabin through the heater/air con thingy.
