2016 interceptor exhaust in cabin

Ok, i am a private individual (not an officer) who ended up with a 2016 interceptor.. I really like the car, but cannot stand the fumes in the car much longer.I went to my dealer, who i practically had to force to take for a test drive.They acknowledged i have a problem, but were very tight lipped about it. I have installed tips trying to move the exhaust farther out, but did not help.
Anybody know if anything is being done by Ford about this? I really like this car, but something has got to give.

I just saw a news story tonight. But look at this, from Feb '17:

Is your Ford Explorer leaking exhaust? - CBS News

If it's CO, it has to be a leak pre-cat.

Why this is a head scratcher for Ford is a real question. There is little mystery as to the source of exhaust gas and it's path out of the vehicle. And it's a short, well defined path at that.

Serving suggestion: Don't use the recirculation setting on the AC, and buy a CO detector and keep it in the console or under your seat. And keep asking the dealer about a fix.

Just heard Ed Wallace talking about this today on his 'Wheels' radio show here in DFW. Ed Wallace's Inside Automotive

basically Ford started investigating and the main complainer - Austin, Tx PD - had drilled holes in the body to install their police gear and did not seal them is what he said to day...

Its interesting that us mere mortals have been complaining about exhaust fumes in the vehicle for YEARS and all Ford would do, if they did anything at all, was apply a TSB that called for disassembling the rear of the vehicle to install heavier cabin exhaust flaps. Sometimes this helped sometimes it didn't.
Ah, but let a couple of police departments pull all their Explorers from service and Ford can see that trend spreading across the country. That's a lot of warranty claims and lost sales not to mention possible law suits from officers that were sickened.
Bet THAT got their attention.

I have a co2 detector in the car, cannot run recirculate on the air. I have not modified the car in any way, yeah it does bother me that it took police complaints to get anything done. I do not think it is cracked manifolds, but i will let them try that.

Gents,

I do not believe that this is actually exhaust. Albeit, it smells just like it and provides some of the same results, I believe yours may end up being what mine was, which was the forward TPU boiling fluid out of the top of it and burning off into the engine compartment and in turn, into your cab.

I thought Ford finally acknowledged this via TSP, but I could be wrong.

Let me know and good luck!

Thanks for the links, my dealership said there is a recall in a week or 2 on the fumes on the police interceptor, i will have them check the power steering then. Mean while, i will look for leaks around that vent.
