What does the exhaust smell like?
I smelled unburned Gas - but I thought that was because of failed CCV valve... I'll have to pay a close attention when the car is back on road.. .right now it's open so can't test it..
Also smelled coolant but i wasn't sure of that becausee one of the hose(replacing) had a leak..
