My engine kind of smells funny, near the back, by the rear turbo, its not a normal smell, not oil burning or anything like that, also when the car is ideling if I put my head close to that area, lots of heat comming out back their, anyway, it makes kind of a hissing sound, not loud, but soft and quiet, not sure what it is, just started it yesterday after I pushed it a little, could it be a vaccum line or something? but if that why the funny smell??? Any ideas?? Thanks

hmm

i dont know about the smell, but the hissing is usually a vacuum leak. dont confuse the sound with your intake pipes or y-pipe. i think ive also heard about sounds that turbos make when there is something wrong. try searching for "bad turbos" or something

sorry i cant help more

Check the coolent lines to turbo. Antifreeze on the exhaust manifold has a very distinct odor.
