check for leaky rocker cover
fuel leaks
poor fitting air filter housing
oil leaks
also check the crankcase breather pipe is whole and connected fully

smelolingl

even in the middle of words :D lollage at its finest :D

And as for the smell...it might be one of them stinks that when you smell something too you mistake it for something else?? does that make sense :confused: lol

And if your exhaust sounds a bit iffy... i would also check the manifold and start working backwards.

Leak in the heater matrix, as you said its mainly there when you use the heaters? thats my bet anyway :)
