    While driving home from work I have noticed that heated seats are not working and the HVAC blower is not working on the first setting. It works on the second, third and four.

    While I drive, if I open the sunroof or I crack open any window, the car fills up immediately with exhaust fumes. I believe the smell comes through the HVAC vents. Otherwise, if I drive with the sunroof and windows closed everything is OK. Is this the famous EGR cooler valve leak? Any way to...
