Four stupid questions: 1. Is there any way to "test" heater boxes, short of asphyxiating one’s self? Mine smell kind-of funny, but blow hot air. 2. Can a bad exhaust system contribute a funny smell from the heater? I did the John Muhr test … shove a rag against the exhaust while the engine is running, and I heard "pist-pist-pist" from under the car, indicating an exhaust leak someplace in the system. Oh, perhaps I forgot to mention the oil cooler leaks, so like the whole engine is covered with oil (perhaps negating the hole notion of fresh-air hose for the heaters). 3. Is there anyone who refurbishes heater boxes? 4. Do all VW heaters smell funny? Bob Couse-Baker Auburn, Calif.
