Hello, I have a 2015 Transit 250 with ecoboost. I only have 1800 miles on it but lately I have been noticing a strange smell in cab and it's giving me a head ache! I don't know it its just the new engine or if it is exhaust fumes. Any of you had this issue?

I did notice a smell at one point after moderate acceleration. It was not combustion fumes as i know them. Could it be a product of the extreme temperatures produced by the twin turbos?

I also noticed a lot of cool air draughts on my hands when I was working on my electrics behind the drivers seat. The air seemed to come from the punched holes in the lower B pillar frame.

I am thinking lots of air is finding its way in through van cavities,and bringing in whatever with it.

My thought to mitigate this would be to create a natural convection exit, as high as possible, so air passes outup high.

Or open a window.
